    I have been working at Huntswood as a contractor


    You will meet some nice colleagues and some what enjoy yourself although they would be bullying you.


    Well where shall I start, Please at any stage do not apply with Huntswood mostly the Reading branch. Worst company to work for, they are very good at blackmailing you everyday, you are not allowed to go home early, we always get emails stating whom ever goes home today would be noted. Its like getting paid £13 per hour so do not look at the money side of it. They have this unrealistic goal to finish off cases and if you get red, well good luck my friend, Its a job where you never know if you have a job the next day, although that's contracting never in my years of contracting did I ever met people like this, and oh if you leave they would be taking your money away, so basically they would bully you; day in and day out and if you want out "well we will take your money". I am really surprised that bank isn't aware whats happening.

    Advice to Management

    Read a book about to treat people. Know this you are not only the contracting company that pays 145 a day. Read a book how to manage people, a good manager never lets it's people go or blackmails them everyday. Many of your people are only taking interviews and going for smaller wages so not to deal with nonsense. You have amazing people that's willing to work for you with honesty but no one can deal with stress and being spoken to like this just to earn that much. Don't mess up

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Huntswood in February 2012.


    I submitted my C.V for review on an attached link on the Company's website. A few days later, I received a call from requesting that I attend an assessment day. The assessment day consisted of a basic literacy/numerical test in a business suit alongside other hopeful applicants. It was then , followed by a 1 on 1 interview.
