I have been working at Coventry Building full-time
The people. No matter what role or where in the business, the people are the greatest asset. Everyone puts the customer's first, and personal development is high on the agenda.
Some of the technology is a little outdated, but hopefully that will be changing soon.
Advice to Management
Keep thinking forward to the future. Keep offering great products. Keep looking after your staff.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coventry Building (Coventry, England (UK)) in April 2017.
Where to start. I applied for the Digital Specialist role via an agency and got a rejection. I was then approached by a different agency for a Marketing Specialist role and got a rejection before I'd even submitted my CV - weird. A month later I was asked to come in for an interview for the Digital Specialist role - a role I was rejected from 2 months earlier. Interview lasted an hour and was intense. The two interviewers were very unfriendly and didn't make me feel comfortable at all. We all crammed into a tiny room and they were very direct in their line of questioning. The company felt very faceless, which is false advertising on their part - "TLC not PLC". Almost 3 weeks later, I haven't had any feedback at all despite the agency chasing it. I've now accepted an offer somewhere else and feel quite relieved to tell the truth. For a company that size, it was a really poor experience.
