Very disorganised and chaotic, undertaken in a tiny store room-no apologies were made. It was embarrassing. The interviewer was not experienced and was having great difficulty reading the questions. She had a vacant look on her face and was not at all engaging. She is now a senior nurse! And a bully. Very unprofessional experience and gave me a bad feeling from the get go, I should have gone with my gut and turned down the job, it was a taster for things to come, luckily I’m out of there now. Don’t work for this company!

That’s a fake fact they say to bribe you to work there. They’re not recognised in the high street. Remember, the reason they win awards is because they pay to enter them, they’re not this super famous company that can give you discounts at shops.

Answered

Depending of the position but obviously you have to look smart and presentable.

Answered

Flexible. 7-3, 8-4 or 9-5 seems to be the norm. Don’t tend to work weekends but the maintenance manager is usually on call in case there is an emergency that the site manager can’t deal with (rare).

Answered

Like a 1990’s team building day

Answered

The short answer is yes but it depends on the position, the managers involved and how much they want you. Most positions have set shifts but there are lots of employees such as those with children who are accommodated with shorter shifts. If you are studying or something they are usually supportive and flexible around it. Some carers do an early or late shift rather than an 8-8.

Get a better PR team. Your Facebook and twitter content is barely engaged with and I’ve never seen my closest home featured in any local media outlets.

Application, interview/selection.
Paid training and shadowing before commencement of work.
