Sometimes they run an decent interview. But that depends on what staffng levels are like. Differences depend for staff member to staff member. From having a decent interview and quizzed to just an informal chat whilst information for DBS is in your hand ready for the check.

They will employ just about anyone so if you can get an interview chances are you will get the job. You just need to pass the DBS check and have two references.

Normally support staff receive minimun wage. I know its a tiny bit more for bank (not much) due to no annual leave allowence. However if your zero hours/bank staff you can pick and choose shifts and submit availiblity.

Sorry about your bad experience - I work for TP and can promise it's a decent company to work for in comparison to others, however every company has area for improvement- TP does recognise this. They are aware that pre employment can sometimes be disorganised and recently in my area of work things have improved around this area. For example we now have our own recruitment worker who organises these interviews so that those kind of mistakes are less likely to happen. I'm not sure how recently you we're in this situation but with feedback issues often get resolved fairly quickly.
