    Facilities Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Eversheds (Manchester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Too much emphasis on running the team and office on a "hotel" basis, you're supposed to be a top tier law firm not Travelodge. Employ people who are qualified and no about Facilities and not from a hospitality background. Gilding the turd will only work for so long before you're seen for what you are i.e. inept, incompetent, ill trained and embarrassingly like a team of Uriah Heep's.

    Legal Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eversheds (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Took a while to set up, but when it eventually happened I thought it went well!!

    Competency based so lots of questions about past experiences and situations. Worth having a think about challenges you've faced etc in the workplace and how you overcame them.

    After weeks waiting for feedback, I finally had feedback that was completely irrelevant to my interview and left me feeling confused! Had they just come back and said I wasn't experienced enough, I would have been happier but the feedback felt made up (i.e. apparently I was nervous.....when they'd stated in the interview how great it was I didn't seem overly nervous!)!

    Legal Secretary Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Eversheds.

    Interview

    Competency based.....bascially an hour of questions regarding experience being fired at you. Preparing well is the key and knowing your CV inside out.

    Unfortunately, Eversheds seem to have policy of not contacting applicants should they not be offered the job......would have welcomed some feedback.
