    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mothercare.

    Interview

    Recruitment team and interview were absolutely fine. However that's where it ends. Such a shame. Mothercare is a fantastic business and it appears to have strong leadership with it's CEO. However people are firmly last on the list on what it considers are important. It's totally evident in the business' strategy and in how they treat people. Interview arranged and agreed at short notice, changed at their request and then not a word from them afterwards to provide any follow up - even to say, thank you for attending but we will not be proceeding. Tells you everything you need to know about working there.
