    Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PizzaExpress (Durham, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    This was a really easy and informal interview. I basically just turned up and they immediately showed me around and explained what the job required. At the end of this I had to ask whether I had the job because he had heavily implied that I did through asking when I was available and showing me the things I would need to do without having said I had it. He confirmed that showing up to the interview was enough for me to get it.

    Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cheadle, North West England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PizzaExpress (Cheadle, North West England, England) in October 2016.

    Interview

    So I received a telephone interview for the next week, and after not being called for over an hour and a half after it was scheduled for I rang them. They said the manager was busy and would phone me back. Somebody did phone me back, I did the interview and was invited to the face to face the next week. I went in, ploughed through a relaxed interview which I found easy. Now here is the interesting part. It took until now for the manager to question my age, to which I responded 17. He then said he wasn't sure if I had to be 18 for the job or not and he would get back to me the day after. Funnily enough the next day I got a call saying I was too young and didn't have the job. Considering I had put my age on my application I find it rather annoying that I wasted all this time being interviewed for the manager to only realise at the last hurdle I was half a year too young.

    Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chester, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at PizzaExpress (Chester, England) in June 2016.

    Interview

    30 Minute phone interview
    30 Minute face to face

    The phone iterview came an hour and a half late due to the manager having the day off for emergency family reasons which is understandable. All that was said was can I come in the next day for a face to face and do I have certain documentation, passport, p45, bank ect, so it was hardly an interview.

    The face to face I was waiting 15 minutes then the manager came out with a p46 in hand and asked me to describe myself, what I reckon the job will entail and how many hours I want to work. They then offered me the job on the spot after basically going hi this is my name and this is what I like.
