    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Leeds, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through their website and the following Monday was invited for an interview (via email) for the same Thursday of that week, I arrived at the interview and was left sitting for a few minutes. I was interviewed by the manager whilst the duty manager wrote down the answers to my questions, some of the questions they asked me were pretty simple and some were difficult for me to answer due to not having a job before. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and by the end of it I felt uncomfortable and extremely insecure, I wasnt told if I had gotten the job or if and when I would be told but with the reaction both of the managers gave me when I answered some of their questions gave me the impression they didnt want me to get the job. After asking me several questions the manager then went onto talk about the job role itself and some health and safety things that by law he had to say and at one point he told me he had forgotten some of the paperwork from his office therefore I didnt receive all the information.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon.

    Interview

    Filled application form online. A few days later received a phone call of manager asking to come in for a 1:1 interview. The interview was ok however the interviewer told me I would hear back the next day what ever the outcome. Never got a call and never heard back. Think its rude and arrogant, Made all the effort being ill to go and not even a call or email to say I hadn't got it. Don't bother wasting your time.

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Chichester, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Interview quick and rushed, was told I had the job but needed a passport or full birth certificate and was then told to get one and to ring back when it came long story short I was told to wait for the interviewing manager to get back from holiday, on the day she is meant to ring me I get a no reply email to say I was unsuccessful after making me wait around for a week, very unprofessional on their behalf. It would have been a lot more professional to tell me at the interview that I did not get the job so that I could get my documents and carry on with my job search instead i was made to believe that the job was there for me.
