    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Whitbread in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Good initial impressions - applied for the role in the summer. A follow-up email came around a month later apologising for the delay and that application was still being considered. This was unexpected and much appreciated.

    First interview scheduled. HR communications were quite disorganised. This included providing details of the wrong address (which was corrected in time) and forwarding a chain of emails with details of at least one other candidate.

    First interview 1:1 and relaxed - a very good and positive experience.

    Called for second interview which was a group interview with presentation. Details of the presentation came through only a few days before the interview. It was stated that the presentation should be formal / PowerPoint delivered.

    Second interview - HR provided the wrong address again but this time not corrected - consequently interview started late. The interview itself seemed to go ok - although there seemed to be some disagreement between the interviewers.
