    I worked at Grafton Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Zero. Literally zero. Unless you like working until midnight and being screamed at.

    Cons

    Terrible management, profitability on a continual downward spiral, old pals acts going on everywhere, over worked, under paid and extremely under appreciated. The place is such a mess that every single little task you have to do becomes an absolutely nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    This is beyond repair.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grafton Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Interviewer: Do you want the job?
    Me: Yes.
    Interviewer: You can start tomorrow.
    Desperate to take anyone on, if you turn up for the interview you will 100% get the job, most people don't take the job offer once they see the crap they have to work with.
