    Night Receptionist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Premier Inn.

    Interview

    Went to the job interview which I applied for through indeed. Seemed down to earth friendly people but the job wasn't properly explained in the advertisement. In the advert it stated they needed someone to cover reception for 2 nights a week ( any nights-part time, 16 hours) I was then told it would be only weekend work. (Friday and Saturday). It also said in the advertisement I would be working at my local premier Inn and on occasion may have to travel to other hotels "local to the area" and informed me that because I'd applied through indeed i would also have to apply through their careers website for hr purposes. On the original advertisement i wasnt informed the job was a regional post and although i may be based at the one close to home i would have to travel a good diatance if needed somewhere else. She names a few of the places I may be required to work (one being 22 miles away from the one I had applying to work in). She also said she'd had a lot of interest in the job and had a lot of interviews to do over the following couple of days. I didn't end up applying for the job on their careers website as I felt the advertisement was not true to form and by filling in the application I'd be agreeing to travel in my opinion silly distances for something that was originally described as "local". The job has now been re advertised on Indeed and I can only assume a lot of people probably had the same thoughts as myself.
