    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    Had an interview, the staff member was friendly, and I thought the interview went really well. I was told I'd hear back in a few days either way - I was never contacted again. A bit inconsiderate if you ask me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Birmingham, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Don’t understand why they ask for staff if they don’t hire the people who actually are right for the job? Required experience, great personality and customer service experince however was declined as other candidates match closely to the position than me. How? I have everything that was on the requirements? Are they god? Absolute joke. No wonder young people can’t get jobs these days

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Helston, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Very little eye contact from the interviewer. I got the impression the interviewer was trying to promote himself as some kind of trendsetter. He got confused with the questioning from the notes he was using.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Glasgow, Scotland) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was great and went very well, I answered all questions well that I was offered a trial shift afterward. After my trial shift one of the MANAGERS took me to the side and said he would be glad to employ me and said he would be in touch in 2 DAYS. 2 days pass and I had not yet received a call, so I had to get in touch with them 5 days after my shift and they told me they would phone the next dayas the manager who interviewed me and looked after me during my trial shift was not in that day. Another 4 days after I had phoned passed, so I took it upon myself to phone back, a manager answered and apologized and said he'd phone back within 5 minutes and tell me whats going on. No phone call back just an email telling me that I didn't get the job when after my trial shift the manager was planning on putting me on the rota in 2 weeks. I have declined interviews after my trial shift as I was made to believe I already had the job. Very disappointed about the outcome and very unprofessional. I will never visit this Wetherspoons, The Esquire again.
