    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.

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.

    Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ponteland, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 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.
