    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cambian Group in July 2015.

    Interview

    Two people asking questions, then follow up with second interview, then visit to a home for a few hours normally includes a meal time. HR takes ages, keeps contacting your referee's often more than once. DBS check. You have to chase HR to get details put through. You then go to see the home you are going to be employed at.

    Support Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wisbech, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cambian Group (Wisbech, England) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for a post in the CAMHS unit but the job was actually in a children's home. The woman who interviewed me had never worked in a children's home before and didn't know any of the legislation when I told her about it.
    Interview lasted around 20 minutes of her asking me simple questions and making notes. It wasn't intimidating or unfriendly - just pleasant chit chat. They also offered me tea or coffee and some biscuits.
    Friendly reception people but waited a very long time in the reception for the interviewer to be available.
    Randomly got a phone call from them about 3 weeks late telling me my start date despite never having been told that I was successful. Very bad organisation!

    Support Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wolverhampton, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cambian Group (Wolverhampton, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Received an email around 2 weeks after applying online offering me an interview. Waited 40 minutes after arriving, 2 panel interview - male and female. The male was asking the questions whilst the female wrote down my answers. Both quite unfriendly, not welcoming, didn't smile once, generally a very unpleasant experience.
    Once the interview was over I was put in a room and given SEVERAL sheets of paper to complete, virtually the same as the original application, took almost half an hour.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cambian Group (London, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Face to face interview. Panel of 2. Unprepared awful interviewer (1 was ok). Tried to change the time morning of the interview, the hiring manager who was the primary interviewer seemed totally disinterested and had a fairness about her. Put me off the process from the reception! Didnt provide feedback or even an email to state I was unsuccessful (would have rejected anyway) package awful compared to what the requirements for the job was. Total lack of professional respect, these guys are hr professionals!!! the reviews about the head of ER certainly made sense!
