    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nottingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Center Parcs (UK) (Nottingham, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Appalling experience. 4 hour interview! Started normal with your group tasks for them to get to know you, then went on to work on the shop floor! In an interview! And then said if your successful we will give you another interview! So basically we worked for 1 hour and 30 mins for free! No one to one like you'd expect. Would not recommend.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Center Parcs (UK) (Mansfield, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Job is filled before you arrive/apply.They employ zero hours staff so the zero hours guy gets the job and they want to back fill his position.Just a total waste of time and effort.Why not just make up interviewees names and save people time.

    Nice walk to the interview.

    Business Intelligence Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Center Parcs (UK).

    Interview

    Attended interview via agency back in 2005 and still not forgotten. Horrible experience. Firstly, the person doing the interview was unavailable. Then, the substitute did a quick 5 minute one to one interview, showing minimal interest in my answers and looking like he couldn't wait to get away. I travelled a long way to make the interview, what a waste of time.

    Administrative/Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mansfield, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Center Parcs (UK) (Mansfield, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The recruitment process was seamless! I was invited to interview via email and had the option to book on to a time slot at a convenient time. The interviewers were really friendly and put me at ease, the questions were as expected so my preparation was not in vain! The 2nd stage involved a work based test followed by further questions. The outcome of each stage was communicated in a timely fashion.

    Housekeeping Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warminster, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Center Parcs (UK) (Warminster, England (UK)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Online application, included personality and skills self-assessment which generates a 'suitability for centre parcs' score. Followed by an in-person interview.

    I was very frustrated by the process. At the interview I was offered a job and arranged a date to come in for training. Three days later I received a phone call from HR probing about my availability as a student. Having declared my availability and intentions from the first step and having a discussion about it at interview before receiving an offer of employment I was surprised to be contacted about it at this stage. I was told to wait for a phone call to confirm whether they were retracting the offer of employment. I never heard from them and finally got an answer by contacting somebody in the office directly after looking them up on linked in!
