    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Care UK (Cheltenham, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I rang the home bell, spoke to the receptionist who, proudly,gave me a tour of the home then the receptionist made me a cup of tea and gave me an application form to fill out. Then I met the house manager, then we went into a comfortable sitting room and I answered verbal questions based on my application form and a few open questions, whilst the interviewer made notes.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Care UK.

    Interview

    The people interviewing me did not introduce themselves. I had to write answers to senarios in a busy sales department. Interview was intimidating and a lot of my answers were pulled to pieces. An interview is a two way process.

    Reasons for Declining

    Flat rate salary no extras for weekends, Christmas, Easter, bank holidays so exploitation considering what they charge to stay in one of their homes.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Care UK (Stroud, England (UK)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Application form filled in and CV submitted. Phone call from secretary to arrange interview and confirmed with e.mail.
    Interviewed by two women, both casually dressed and unintimidating. Interview lasted for approximately 1 hour. Found questions challenging as I have not been for an official interview for over 30 years.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Care UK (Colchester, England (UK)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    application form filled out and submitted, interview, week of training, shadow training. Managers had a very calming influence which made the interview professional yet smooth. Training was extremely eye opening, passionate and engaging. It was also very daunting as there felt like there was much to learn, however, the managers made it very clear that there was no such thing as a stupid question which made everyone feel at ease. The trainers would often use engaging, practical exercises to get everyone used to each other. This made everyone feel at ease sharing their personal experiences.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Care UK (Ponteland, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Quite ad-hoc. More along the lines of whether the manager liked you or not. If you are family you will probably get the job!

    The level of being up to date skills wise can leave a lot to be desired.

    Negotiation

    Go for your price and stick to it. All pay is not equal there.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Care UK (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I filled an application form and handed it personally to the company. Later I had a phone interview where I answered general questions. Very soon, I was called for a formal interview which went well. They focused on personality and general personal outlook towards care as is expected and made me feel relatively at ease.
