    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon.

    Interview

    Very good process. The manager responded quickly to the application via phone and I was invited for interview. The manager conducted the interview in the restaurant itself. I was asked all the usual questions that you would expect to be asked. The only part I didn’t feel was necessary was questions about which of the other pubs I had visited and why. They clearly want to know that you’re a fan of the restaurants which I didn’t feel was necessary given the role.
