    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Mitchells & Butlers.

    Interview

    Trial shift given, though policy has changed now to a stringent interview. Still will hire almost literally anybody. As a result the morale is dreadful and the gap between head office and front line staff is huge. Offers industry training and sponsorship though, so if you want to get a retail management foundation degree, go here and show a little potential, and be reimbursed or even sponsored to study for it and gain promotion and oh-so-slight pay rise once passed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mitchells & Butlers (Kingston upon Hull, England (UK)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I attended a highly informal interview, as it was for part time work, and so there was no real need for a proper interview. It was just a general chat and filling in paper work. I was then shown around the place and introduced to some of the staff. Afterwards, I was told when I would be contacted about my first shift, and what I could expect.
