Waitress Interview

Anonymous Employee in Scotland, CT (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PizzaExpress (Scotland, CT (US)) in August 2018.

Interview

It was a casual conversation. We sat down and it was fine, not anything special. A normal interview experience, they ask you about your experiences in the past, why you want to work there. I have to write at least 30 words.

    Interview

    The interview process was simply a standard in-person interview in the restaurant with the manager and the assistant manager. It was relatively informal, with general questions regarding the company and how certain instances would be approached.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a telephone interview where they asked a few casual questions, then a face to face interview which was very informal and rushed as i think they were understaffed.

    Interview

    Interview at restaurant which seemed promising and then told I would hear from them within a few days. No reply and even after phoning a few times I never got through to anyone who could give me an answer

    Interview

    So I applied for the job two weeks ago, got called for an interview last week & got the job yesterday! The interview was very chill, I got along with the manager immediately so it didn’t even seem like it was an interview, there was a few tricky questions here & there but besides that it wasn’t too bad at all!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PizzaExpress in October 2018.

    Interview

    Very simple - a quick, 15 minute chat with a manager about the job and myself. They were incredibly friendly and complimentary, but I wasn't sure if I'd got the job as it seemed so informal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PizzaExpress in August 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an interview the same day, I applied for a store, but the interview said it was at another one, which I thought must have been their headquarters. It turns out they made an error and sent me to the wrong one, the guy from the wrong store told me that 10 people had already made the same mistake. I got to the right store, the interviewer comes over, introduced herself, then a couple of questions in another guy sits down. And doesn’t say a word, I have to ask half way through why he’s here. I also noticed that they were giving each other the side eye and dirty looks through out the whole interview. I am so happy I didn’t get this job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PizzaExpress (Leeds, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    My interview was set to be at 11am but as I arrived at the restaurant, I was told by one of the chefs that the manager wouldn’t be in for another half hour and I would have to come back then. So I left and came back, was told to take a seat in the dining area and it was another 40 MINUTES until I was interviewed at 12:10. The manager was quite rude and after my experience I didn’t want a job there anyway.

    Hi, Thank you for posting a review regarding your recent interview at PizzaExpress. We would like to apologise that your experience was a less than positive one due to the fact that, after arriving on time, you were asked to come back and that you had to wait such a long time before you were seen by the manager. We also deeply regret you finding the manager rude during this time. We pride ourselves on what is usually a consistent and positive recruitment process and understand that, on this occasion, we fell below expectations. Your feedback has been taken on board. Thank you again - your review will help to prevent this happening again. We would like to wish you all the very best in your career. The People Team PizzaExpress

    Interview

    So i've seen some of the other interview processes on here and it is very similar. I thought i'd share mine to help anyone out there stressing about their interview :) When I came in, I smiled at the lady and informed her I was there for an interview which led to her making me sit in the middle of the restaurant and asked me if I wanted a drink. I thought my interview was gonna be conducted there and they made me sit there for about 10 mins which wasn't quite nice because I became quite nervous but rest assured the manager came and took me to the corner of the restaurant which I preferred. She asked me a series of questions about my my documents first of all. The information prior says you need a copy of your passport but he said he didn't need it just to see the documents itself. It was a pretty chill interview I tried to joke around and it did make me feel comfortable. She informed me that they get a meal every 4 hours and the pay for my age (under 21) was 5.85 which I thought was quite low but with a good working environment and really nice staff I chose it over the current place I had been working at. She had a series of questions which I will leave down below :)
