    Interview

    Online test questionnaire with multiple possibility answer but no room for explanation. I got no negative or positive feedback either. This type of interview leaves out any room for creative process.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    First interview on the phone then an interview with a recruiter in one of their brunch which was great after s trial where you will he asked to do a questionare prior your shift after a chat with the gm so far all standard but the best is your final interview where you meet senior management that the only things they say is how much they like to promote internal employee and they keep going on all the time making you feel you are actually wasting time but why then they look for external if they love to promote internally ???

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant (London, England (UK)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    It was challenging, personal and contradicting! Kept mentioning throughout that they knew this person and that. You work for Cote so surely the interview is about your brand and not others. It makes you think why there are so many vacancies has popped up all over the brand.

    Open day format so you show up with your CV to an open day or to the restaurant directly and speak to the manager. Manager will look at your CV and call you back for an interview if successful. 15 minute final interview. You will be offered a drink, accept it and be chatty. You are applying for a service role so they want to see how you interact with a stranger.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    I was interviewed by the Recruitment Team first, by Chantelle who was really lovely and bubbly. She had great knowledge about the company and was really enthusiastic and answered all my questions. I then did a trial shift at their Soho restaurant where Chris the General Manager was really welcoming and friendly. After that, I interviewed with the Area Manager and Regional Manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant (Dartford, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Came in for a trial shift for roughly 2 hours long. Gave a me quick tour, introduced a few members, had to memorise the table numbers, did some basic tasks and they want to see if you can hack it. If you just sit there and don't use your initiative or slow people down, you will most likely not be hired.

    Interview

    Enjoyable and chilled interview process, was a group interview after an introductory speech and more about the company, whereby we were put into groups and were asked to collectively produce a poster on a food that they served. Then we were individually called to an interview with the area manager, where we had a short conversation to project more about ourselves.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant.

    Interview

    Poor - very unprofessional - shocking - the person recruiting didn't follow any specific process because he had no knowledge of management. Unclear terms and conditions and do not treat people with respect. Need to train your staff carefully and apply also fair recruitment process

    Waitress Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Côte Restaurant (Canterbury, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went to one of their 'assessment days' where most of it was group work. Didn't really feel that it was an intense interview as the mood was generally lighthearted. Asked to create a menu and present in front of other groups. There was a one on one interview near the end, but its styled to be more of a friendly chat.
