    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Huntswood (Reading, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Not a great start as the individual involved forgot that they were interviewing me. I was sat by the phone as it was a first stage process waiting and had to chase to find out what had happened.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huntswood (Reading, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Aptitude tests, basic maths and English. Short one-on-one interview with a friendly staff member. Ended with a practice letter we had to write to a customer. At the end JSA an umbrella company will approach you about getting paid from them. Don't. Get yourself an accountant and set up a limited company - it is a lot easier than it sounds! And saves you lots of money.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Huntswood (Reading, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Easy interview, just asked few question about myself and my cv. I was also asked if I knew anything about PPI... I felt they could have explained to us the job more into details maybe I wouldnt have taken the job. Dont get me wrong I saved a bit but the only issue is you should prepare yourself for mental abuse.

    Data Gatherer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huntswood (Reading, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was an absolute doddle. Seriously, the guy was selling the job to me, not the other way around! Then we were asked to do a very simple numeracy and literacy test, along with typing a formal letter. It was so easy that I did think it was a bit strange that such a well paying job was so accessible? I'd worked in data previously, but there really weren't any questions about data. I kept waiting for my interviewer to ask and it never came up! I now realise that it is because they are having trouble finding/keeping staff because the job is such a mess.

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't a negotiation because the wadge is so good! Now I would demand a hell of a lot more, because of the hours I'm putting in and the pressure is horrible.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Huntswood (Reading, England (UK)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I spent 20 minutes talking with the CEO. He didn't ask me anything about the role or my suitability but it was a graduate position - I have since discovered they were looking for a type of person rather than someone with specific skills so it was all based on personality.
