    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SSP Group (Leeds, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very relaxed interview, no taxing questions, pretty standard ones about customer service etc. It was also pretty quickly answered from applying to being asked to the interview.

    Kitchen Porter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SSP Group (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had to do several health and safety online tests which are pointless as the company dont follow health and safety practices. If you complain and try and improve practices they act like a gang and oust you; all the way up to top management level.Some points about the interview; Informal, alot of waiting around as interview was late and found myself hanging around the bar for ages, very disorganised as the procedure to get site pass to work at the train station was a nightmare. I kept getting asked to bring wrong identification documents, very rude unfriendly and unprofessional

    Team Member Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SSP Group (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email inviting me for an interview in store. It was a very casual interview at the back of the store with the manager. She looked through my CV and was just asking about my previous experience, education, availability etc.

    The interview took about 5-10 minutes, so it was really short. At the end of the interview, she told me that she would get back to me with a result 1-2 days later. I never heard from them again which I thought was quite unprofessional.

    Interview

    Face to face interview with couple of so called techies and someone from the HR side. Most of their questions around how smart you are to hide your own and managers shortcomings and non-competence.

    • Why i Waterloo Station some relevant manager has allowed to give the name of pagan gods to the machine in which employeers are obliged to put the money at the end of their shift? Lucifer is an evil god (fallen angel in christian religion) Athena is a greek godness as Sophia the goodness of the knowleged. This is completely unfair because simulate a ritual of adoration of this gods giving our time life with the value of money we product in a shift as gift to this god machine, and they bless us with our payslip wages. I'm Christian i can't tolerate this. I have video proof of it since 2016.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at SSP Group (Manchester, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    They'll hire anyone, because they know nobody lasts long. You can get in as long as you string two sentences together, even if you're overqualified with a degree like myself.

    Nothing to say really, just hand in a poor CV and you'll have a job no questions asked.
