Great management, time off allowed whenever
No employee benefits, no paid time off
Advice to Management
No advice to management. Owners are doing a fantastic job. Adding employee benefits would be a step in the right direction.
The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stagecoach.
Completely unacceptable experience.
Offered a telephone interview following a four week wait after submitting a CV.
Date set for telephone interview but no call ever materialised at the agreed time despite me informing the recruiter I’d be taking an afternoon off work so I could speak properly. No email or contact to apologise until I got in touch at the end of the day to ask what had happened. Received a half-hearted apology and vague excuse.
Telephone interview went ahead the following week which lasted about 45 minutes. Fairly standard stuff, nothing out of the ordinary. At the end of this stage the recruiter said the next part would be some online tests to test maths and English. I thought this was incredibly dated and didn’t really give any insight into the capability of doing the job but went with it anyway.
I completed the tests as planned after spending a good few hours preparing and practicing. This was mid-September. It’s now mid-December and the results never materialised, nor did even an automated email to say not taking you forward to next stage.
Not progressing to the next stage is always a bit of a disappointment but the dismal way Stagecoach conducted this recruitment makes me believe I’m much better off at my new company. A very poor experience all round and one I would urge people to avoid.
