    I have been working at ActivTrades full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few, and constant being taken away

    Cons

    Next week, from March 6 2017, all staffs need to be in suits and ties, despite no clients or visits to office. Before it was relaxed, which just about made bearable, now have to sit uncomfortably but can wear a turtle neck as CEO wears one so all about him!! No coats or bags allowed to be on show, desks to be cleaner than hospital operate room, fun vacumn cleaner on full SUCK

    Advice to Management

    Consider that most people are yunger than all of you and expect different, dont want to be in suits or controlled. Many unhappy people and the office in Dublin wont be any better

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ActivTrades in March 2016.

    Interview

    There were two interviews with a recruiter from the staffing agency and in a week time, one final interview with group of higher managers, including the CEO of the company.
    The questions from the pannel interview were very predictable and formal, nothing innovative at all. Besides the formal questions, there were some cases, focused entirely on the specific of the role. A feedback was promised but never provided.
