    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Burton upon Trent, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went extremely well and the lady who interviewed me said she was very impressed and was confident that I would receive a call back regarding the job offer, so I was almost certain that I was successful, two weeks later, no call back whatsoever, plain rude and job was given to somebody else.
    Led on to believe a false sense of hope. Terrible company, don't even bother.

    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (Newcastle, England) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Basic interview, relaxed and easy.

    Friday interview.
    Invited in the following Monday for an induction. Worked four hours unpaid, no problems as I have three years kitchen experience and this was more as a stop off while I went back into education.

    Was told I had the job and expect a phone call on the Friday to tell me when I started. They even took my shoe and dress seizes for my work uniform.

    Didn't receive a phone call, instead a crappy automated email to say I was unsuccessful.

    Went in on the Monday, spoke to the manager and he said we are used to a more fast paced environment. Im used to making everuthing from scratch, this was a joke. Disgusting. Wouldn't have minded if they didn't say I didn't get the job...

    Went online to apply where I had to enter lots of information about my previous experience in hospitality and other relevant information.

After this I received an email which confirmed that they had received my application and that if I don't hear from them within 14 days then the application was unsuccessful. I received an email 5 days later inviting me for an interview in 4 days. The evening of the day after the interview I received a phone call saying that I had got the job and that I was to attend a documentation interview in 5 days time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon in July 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out the application form online and they rang me about a week later telling me I had gotten an interview.i then received an email the day before the interview saying it was an assessment day and would last approx. 4 hours. I went in and there was about thirty people there and we all introduced ourselves. Everything was really relaxed and informal. Then we played some bingo game to get to know each other. This was followed by a team activity where we had to come up with a signature dish. We had a break and when we came back we were divided into two groups my group went for interviews while the other did another team activity (pretend. You were on an island, you had to prioritise the items) and then the two groups swapped. The interview was basic questions and was very relaxed. I got a phone call 5 days later offering me a position.
