    I have been working at Computacenter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very customer oriented. I have always felt that my supervisor has worked with me and I know he has my back. They communicate fairly well more about what you're doing wrong than what you're doing right but the do praise when it's due. For the most part I enjoy working there, I have high regards for my co-workers and supervisors.

    Cons

    When someone leaves the company they don't replace unless absolutely necessary, they would rather move people around which can leave us shorthanded. Which means we have to do more with less. But that is the corporate way these days, they're no different than anyone else. Would like to see more of a pay increase, but at least we do get them. Work life balance not the greatest but that is because of the commute time and the time that I retire in the evening, I can't blame them for that. Overtime is almost non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have anything bad to say about managment.

    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 :)
