I have been working at TMP Worldwide UK full-time
Interesting company. Early 2000's company grew by acquiring 400+ companies that remained an amalgam and not a truly integrated company. Management commented to integrate and continual improvement.
With a history to acquisition, the foot print is all over the US, and locations around the world. Distributed company has many cultures as well as a lot of localized skills that are applicable to local demands. Integration has been challenging however improving.
Advice to Management
Continue to integrate all the company activities. There was a growing pains primarily through the 400+ companies the parent company acquired. Happy employees will propel the company in to a successful one.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in February 2014.
Applied directly, contacted within 1 week for initial interview. Initial interview was meant to be a face to face but I wasn't able to get the time off so there was a telephone interview. They were very accommodating with this which was great. Phone interview was a basic competency interview. Second interview was an attention to detail test which consisted of 3 job adverts which had to be checked for spelling, grammar, consistency etc. and meeting the team.
Got a call 10 minutes after the interview offering me the position.
Didn't try to negotiate as happy with the offer
