    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J D Wetherspoon (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Very long online questionnaire. Then a very simple face to face interview where they grade you with smiley faces at the bottom. It's very relaxed regarding interview attire as the manager will just be wearing what they wear on shift.
    Interview

    Simple ie. why do you want to work here.
