    Jobseeker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester City Centre, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at REED (Manchester City Centre, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for a couple of suitable jobs. I went to a face-to-face interview with a recruiter. The interview took 3 min. The recruiter was very arrogant and seemed not really interested in me from the beginning. I never heard back from them.

    Classroom Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at REED (Reading, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was pleasant apart for the long drive and expensive car park - I would not usually go that far out of my area for work especially if the actual placement is near my home. The actual face to face interview with Reed was easy going and I felt I could be myself. I had to submit some paperwork including credit ref. CRB and CV before visiting their Reading Office. The interview was conducted by two staff, one who is still with them. I then met withtwo different department managers at a special needs school and talked about my background and what I though I could do there. It lead to a long term placement.

    Formal, yet relaxed competency interview. Had to also do a written task and verbal and numerical reasoning tests. I was in there for around 1.5 hours. Would recommend the process. Was also represented by a REED consultant who was extremely supportive and helpful.

    Media Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at REED (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I literally can’t fault the recruitment experience I had with Reed.co.uk, from application to receiving an offer took about 1 week. Olivia (the recruiter) was there for me, from beginning until the end and made me feel so calm and so at home. Olivia also gave me feedback and helped and reassured me with any questions I had, she’s a diamond. The actual interview was quite easy too, for me
    personally. There was also a telephone role play, which I definitely would suggest prepping for as it really helps. I then got a call that day to say I’d got the job.
