    Web Content and Translation Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Ladbrokes in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Unprofessional hiring process. I had a quick initial telephone interview with a recruitment consultant, after which he sent me a written task to complete. It was a challenging copy to translate and I put a lot of effort into it. I never heard back after that despite emailing twice and calling and leaving a message.

    I understand when companies don't reply to all applicants at the CV submission stage but at the task stage it is expected to have a courtesy to respond.

    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ladbrokes.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, filled in competency questionnaires and assessments, was invited for interview, at interview was asked pretty open/basic questions. Was made to feel comfortable at the interview and was asked questions like "An example of when I went above and beyond the role". I was phone the same day of the interview with a job offer and began 10 days later.

    Interview Questions
    • "What is your proudest achievement, work or personal". To me this felt like a bit of a trick question as you could give a great achievement at work and look great, but at the same time to be honest it might be within your personal life and then you may be seen as an under-achiever. I answered honestly with a personal achievement and was still offered a position but at the time it seems quite difficult.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, I was offered the position and I took it.

    Deputy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ladbrokes in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    I applied using an application form that I picked up from one of the shops. Having had experience at the company before, I immediately got an interview and had good previous experience to answer such questions as "Tell me about a time that you had to deal with a tricky cutomer and what steps did you take to ensure both you and the customer ended up satisfied with the outcome." It was a one-to-one interview with the area manager and it consisted of these types of questions relating to the betting and gambling industry. Questions also asked included "How often do you gamble yourself?" and "How do you feel you could benefit the company".

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The salary and rate are pretty non-negotiable, particularly when you start out as a regular cashier. They state the current pay in the letter once you have been accepted for the job. My advice would be not to even try to negotiate as it may lead to rejection.
