    Front of House Bar Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ashford, Kent, South East England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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