    Interview

    Really easy, just a nice chat really. Asked questions about motivation and previous experience (e.g. what do you know about Whetherspoons?, why do you want to work here?, describe any previous experience). Good attitude, just looking for someone resilient and customer-oriented. Friendly interviewer, overall good experience.
