    When morals already low enough

    Advice to Management

    Management have no idea how to lead the current changes at centre level very disappointing as for this to work it needs to lead from the top

    Catering Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marple, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wyevale Garden Centres (Marple, England (UK)).

    Interview

    pointless group interview, no questions about my previous experience. I think the hardest question I had to answer was the one I have mentioned. overall experience was embarrassing and it seemed they selected people from the interview by drawing names out of a hat. we also had to split up into teams and go on what seemed like a patronising 'treasure hunt' for products through the garden centre and then we were given a question sheet, which constituted of questions with obviously placed answers in the wording.
