Their internal recruitment team contacted me for a role and told me I would be a perfect fit. The invited me for an initial interview, which I had with a different member of the recruitment team.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Whitbread in Apr 2021

Interview

After applying you are asked to complete some online tests, these were of average difficulty for finance graduate schemes this year. Successful completion of the tests lead to a video interview with a previous graduate, and if you are successful there you are invited to attend an assessment day (all online this year). The assessment day consisted of a group task with 7 other applicants, a presentation to a panel of 3 (topic given on the day with one hour to prepare), a Q&A with their current graduates and another interview with two previous graduates. I found the assessment day to be very enjoyable and the work culture seemed less formal and incredibly friendly.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Whitbread (Ashford, Kent, South East England, England, England) in Oct 2019

Interview

I applied for the job through Indeed and was invited to an interview the next day. The interview itself was very laid-back and friendly; it felt more like an informal chat than a formal interview. I was then invited to a three-hour trial shift later that week (6pm-9pm) where I shadowed someone else working on what's called grill, which was collecting finished dishes and serving them to the correct tables. I was told at the end of the trial shift that they would like to offer me the job.
