I worked at Ladbrokes full-time
- If you like sport then you pretty much have constant access to it throughout your working day.
- The people are a laugh, down to earth for the most part.
- No room to be creative or progress
- Male dominated. Very laddy/macho and there seems to be no desire to change that
- Very cliquey middle management whose only job seems to be feeding back upper managements ideas or suggestions (being creatively constrained themselves).
- Upper management so far removed from the digital department I don't think they've ever walked around that part of the office.
- Work is repetitive and dull. You could genuinely train a monkey to do it.
- The only job I've ever had which hasn't taught me any new or valuable skills in my area of work.
- You'll have to do shifts and work weekends which are absolutely horrendous after a while.
Advice to Management
Have some faith in your employees and give them a chance to do more than data entry
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ladbrokes.
easy, applied directly on website, got called in for open day, had to do a 10 min sports quiz, which let me down - you can have a base knowledge and get by but think is just the ethos of the company, then had to write a reply letter to a customer complaint. Next interview with hiring manager, easy again.
