I worked at TRL full-time (More than a year)
The people are fun and interesting to work with, and some of the work covers interesting and useful topics
Staff seem to be expected to work long hours to do the work without any benefits.
Advice to Management
Be more open with staff and try to understand what they are telling you, rather then hearing what you want to. Also be more visible and approachable
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TRL (Wokingham, England (UK)) in May 2016.
A phone interview with HR who kept asking me to send some pieces of work (reports) that I wrote during my studies to forward it to the manager before inviting me to an interview. Then I was invited to a face-to-face interview with two managers who were very welcoming. They seemed nice but they kept throwing indirect question to see the implications behind my answers. After that I received a phone call from HR to ask me again to send further reports that I wrote during my studies as they are not too sure yet, then they only got back to me after a week to tell me sorry they will pass and I didn't get a response when I asked about the real reason behind this. Very unprofessional and should have assessed my technical skills during my interview and not asking me to send them papers before and after the interview.
