    Former Employee - Customer Service Assistant in Rotherham, England (UK)

    I worked at William Hill full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be a fun environment, especially during National or Cheltenham events, chance to grow within the company if your in the right shop, I was only a customer service assistant but was trained up to open/close the shop, do the banking and basically manage the shop,

    Cons

    Aslong as you get along with the manager you can arrange days off easily, I left due to being on maternity when I returned the manager from a different shop was now my manager and she was a bully, whilst on maternity I tried to keep in contact with the shop about what had changed or if I needed updating on anything, I arranged with my manager to have the week off for my childs first birthday, she wrote it down and was told it was fine, when I went back after maternity I was then informed by my area manager that I couldn't have the week off as she hadn't been notified by my manager, my manager then took advantage of me within the work place, tried pinning her mistakes on me and pushed me out of the shop, this of corse was not hidden away from the customers as they saw how she treated me themselves, some even stopped and went into Ladbrokes instead once I left and have never been back since, as I have said previously, aslong as you get along with your manager your ok, if not be prepared to get some stick. If you leave make sure your notice coincides with cut off date for wages else you won't receive them and be fobbed off like I was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to complaints from employees regarding bullying and do something about it else you will lose staff to other companies where they feel part of the team and listened to with any issues they have.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at William Hill.

    Interview Details

    Formal introduction, area team leader and manager of shop interviewed me, asked when I could start, what made me choose the company, if I knew anything about horse racing, sports or betting, I only really know about motor sports, with that being said it was a tick as there isn't a lot of females that know about motor sports within the company, I didn't really understand betting types but they explained that I would learn it all in training, was then given a sheet with maths questions but they let me use a calculator, very easy didn't really need one, this was 5 years ago so may of changed the process since then.

    Interview Questions
    • basic maths questions, what I would do with an angry/confused customer, any holiday plans in the next 6 mths (probation period)   Answer Question
