I have been working at Wahaca full-time (More than a year)
Great, vibrant company culture, founders really care about their business and people, leading the way with sustainability, great rewards and benefits.
Not the largest company, however growing and evolving!
Advice to Management
Keep spotting the talent within your business.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wahaca (Liverpool, England (UK)) in November-2015.
The interview was relatively quick, just a short chat about my background and what had led me to apply for the position followed by a brief outline of the company's history. The day after the interview, I got a call asking me to come in for a trial shift. This shift went well, worked with the team for about 4 hours and absolutely no problems. At the end of the shift, the manager told me she'd be in touch.
However, this was the last I heard from them. I even tried to call in to the restaurant and I was told that they'd get in touch with me but I heard nothing. Really really disappointed with the recruitment process as it seems they just offered me a trial shift to get some free labour. Great restaurant but very disappointing experience.
