    I have been working at Hastings Direct full-time


    Hastings is growing rapidly which means there are lots of opportunities to get involved and contribute. Because we've grown from a small company to a large one so quickly, there's still a really friendly feel all over the offices, despite our size, and everyone always launches themselves at a challenge.
    There's lots of company events all year long and you can see the sea from the Bexhill office windows!


    Sometimes the business growth can be in a lot of directions at once and keeping up isn't easy with so many plans on the go, in separate business areas.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer plans, vocalised across business areas and less people 'doing their own thing'.
    Create more formalised opportunities for junior employees to develop skills and qualifications outside of the contact centre environment.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (Leicester, England (UK)) in June 2016.


    Applied online, got a call from the recruitment team. Very friendly, passed the interview with no problem. Invited into the office for role play and 1:1 interview, the role play was all over the place. very unprofessional. I also felt the team leader was very judgemental and critical of my background.
