    I have been working at Ingeus (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ambitious company with big future goals.
    Good people work here, made a lot of good friends.
    Great feeling when you help someone change their life around and finally get them a job.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations on advisors at times, expected to get 7 people per month in to work when majority of the clients are on sickness benefit nowadays - not job seekers allowance.
    Management trained to coach therefore not always good with straight answers and solutions.

    Learning and Development Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ingeus in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I should have trusted my instincts and not wasted my time in going for interview. I was initially invited to interview and turned up at the Head Office but after waiting for 20 minutes was advised that neither of the panel members were there (one due to sickness, no reason was given for the absence of the Area Director). After a phone interview I was persuaded to arrange a second date for an interview (this time with a member of HR rather than the Area Director) . The interview felt extremely 'artifical' rather than a genuine discussion and it was impossible to get a good feel for the role.

    Very predictable competency based questions 'can you give me an example of....' with some rather odd (and basic) hypothetical scenarios which I haven't experienced at interview in recent years. I was surprised at the 2 dimensional nature of the interview for a senior role and the number of hypothetical questions asked, which are not a good indicator of potential job performance.

    I was never advised of the outcome of the interview which is particularly poor practice in any role, let alone when interviewing HR professionals.
