    Current Employee - Regional Engineering Manager in Birmingham, England (UK)

    I have been working at Carillion full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, good team, independent working.

    Cons

    Extremely poor IT outsourced to India, Poor payroll department also outsourced to India that leads to salary errors every month. System has setup for auto payments but on overtime have met many people who have waited upto half a year to get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training on managers for payroll for Fusion would reduce many of the problems.
    Remove India from the IT as currently its costing a fortune on wasted time for people within the UK relying on them.

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Carillion.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone call asking some basic questions about my CV, not like a phone interview but more like a confirmation of what I've send them. This was followed by an assessment centre where there was an exercise of listing things in order of importance after an airplane crash, an in-tray exercise, an exercise where we were given in teams of 4 a pack of A4 paper/paper clips and were asked to build a bridge with the available materials.

    Interview Questions
    • In the beginning of the assessement center, everybody had to say out loud one truth and one lie about himself. Everybody would try to guess which statement was true or false.   Answer Question
