    I worked at Centrica full-time

    Pros

    Definitely the people. The teams I worked in were filled with positive, doers, people who got their hands dirty and got on with it.

    Cons

    Decisions. There were none. Managers are too busy looking upwards to make stuff work on the shop floor.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Centrica (London, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Good interview with two managers, the hiring manager and his boss. They went through the role to outline what was required. This was a thorough session into my background and experience. In fact it was not the right role for me, but an interesting session.
