I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time (Less than a year)
Was a good summer job where you meet lots of people in a fast paced environment. Training was good with very friendly staff. Getting paid weekly is also good along with discounted food.
The pay was poor and it was difficult changing around shifts. Dealing with drunk people is hard work and can get exhausting.
Advice to Management
Increase pay, especially on bank holidays and holidays. More flexibility with shifts and improving the mystery customer set up .
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Harrogate, England (UK)) in June 2017.
Applied online, took 1 day to have an interview confirmed.
There were two people, one asking questions, one writing down my answers. I felt nervous to begin with but after a couple of questions I felt at ease because the questions were relatively easy to answer.
I'm glad that I prepared for the interview by checking out facts about wetherspoons and asking my girlfriend to pretend to be an interviewer.
My advice for anybody doing an interview is to just be relaxed and answer the questions as best you can. Think about your answers before opening your mouth.
