    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon in January 2019.

    Interview

    Bad. Interviewer turned up late by 5 minutes, but I wasn’t too fussed. Then asked me questions which felt a bit unrelated to the job. Also, I said “the job has good employee ratings”. She said “where did you see these ratings” I replied “on sites such as glassdoor.com”. She replied “I tend not to look at them sites because it’s full of people complaining”. And now, here I am, writing a review because they sent me an email saying “review your interview experience on glassdoor.com”. Also got disturbed half way through the interview by staff telling my interviewer she received “a phone call from her husband”. It was a bit unprofessional, but the interviewer was nice.
