    Pros

    If your friends with management, you won't have to do any work. You can come in late, leave early, or just not come in at all.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. If your not friends with management, you'll have to work 10 times as hard and receive no recognition. You need to use your own car and cell phone with no reimbursement. No supplies or necessary equipment to get the job done. Management and team leads have no idea what they're doing and don't dare disagree with anything they say. Management and HR don't listen to you and don't follow culture and values , it's all just words. Don't trust any of them. They will try to screw you over as much as possible. As a woman, you will be ignored and treated as less than.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your culture guidelines. Get better Management. People who are actually experienced in that field.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Computacenter in February 2017.

    Interview

    The day started if very chilled, got to meet all the other applicants in computacenter head quarters (which is very impressive). The people were welcoming and really just wanted to know if they were the best fit for you, along with you for them obviously.

    Then the day started with a ice breaker which was just a task to see how you work as a team and what skills are needed for the job. This is not assessed, but don't show your self up being bossy or not listening.

    Then the day started with 2 activities. These are just seeing if you have the skills for the job.... as you already know be assertive and back your point, but don't say anything if the point isn't worth making.

    Then we had lunch with some of the graduates and other employees, this time is to really ask the nitty gritty questions, that you can't ask the employer. This is not assessed, but be friendly chat and just have a good conversation!

    Then came the interview, they ask you some questions at the beginning focusing on you, but then generic competency..... and they did ask what do you know about computacenter. The interviewers are nice and just want to know your motives and if your a good fit.

    Finally a ten minute presentation, do your best, try make it simple interesting and to the point.

    Hopefully this helps! I had a great day, really nice people and was offered the job! Just be your self, show your strengths in what ever form :)
