I worked at Pukka Herbs full-time
It was a nice place to work, sometimes. They host really good parties and events. Really fair salary (considering the amount of work that is expected). Supportive people when times get rough!
The company has its values based on how much they care about plants and the planet... but also how much they care if you are a hippy. If you don't fit in, that's fine, but you are frowned upon for eating something that isn't organic. The place is slowly going down hill since the Unilever take over and no one seems to care. Marketing are CONSTANTLY bringing out new products without letting the previous product even develop... it's madness. There is a hierarchy in management too, which is fine, but if you haven't been there long enough your opinions are just ignored. Unfortunately the cons weigh out the pros. It is very much a cult in there and once you're out you're out.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pukka Herbs (Bristol, England (UK)) in June 2016.
Received a friendly email saying it was going to be really informal. So went in there relaxed greeted by two ladies.
As we discussed my CV I never felt so judged in my life, I literally wanted to up and leave.
To make matters worse I had 40 minutes of 5 different categories which I was presented with 4 statements which described me best. I have been through harder interviews for more technical jobs and never did I again get such a look of not picking the right ones.
When that was all over I left feeling overwhelmed on how poorly I was treated, I knew this wasn't the company for me.
