    Community Support Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Support in December 2014.

    Interview

    People in interview and test room seemed OK but the person who originally invited me for an interview after reading my CV, then decided that although I have had over 15 years experience as a Home Carer, being a Carer was "probably not for me".

    Arrogant amateurish and comical beyond belief.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were a bit difficult for me as I have not been through the process of seeking work for many years and this was all a bit new to me.

    Admin Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Support (Birmingham, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed by two people. They were expecting a lot of experience and skills but offering very little pay. I was asked nine scenario based questions. Contract job, uncertainty over whether they'd keep you on after the nine months. They need to offer a fair salary to people and not just pennies above the minimum wage. This is unprofessional and they can only expect a high staff turnover.

    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Support in August 2017.

    Interview

    Welcoming, friendly and fair. From the beginning I was put at ease. The interview was basically set at the pace in how I responded and the panel as recruiters did their best to get the best responses out of me. As a recruiter myself but in the position of interviewee I felt the attention and focus given to me was proportional in all aspects of recruitment.

    Interview Questions

    • What attracted me to the job and the experience I could bring and encouraged me to answer in my own words. I knew then they wanted to hear from me and not the automatic jargon. This was important for me to hear, because I knew they were genuinely interested in hearing from me.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Creative Support (Manchester, England).

    Interview

    Group interview then individual interview, idea right but i don't see how you can be assessed in a group of 12 people all trying to talk over each other. Individual interview was straight forward enough

    Support Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    group interview first which rules out a lot of suitable and good candidates who may just not be good public speakers. Interview questions very difficult and at times irrelevant. Individual interview focussed on strange questions. Service user input into the individual interview appears to be a very tokenistic approach.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Creative Support (Manchester, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was an online application process, following which i was invited to a group interview at headquarters. There were about 8 others in the group interview, it was easy to get drowned out when speaking about the scenarios they told us. They encourage everyone to talk. I managed to speak, but i'd probably suggest trying to input information at every round. There was a section of this interview where you had to fill in a form of questions for twenty minutes.The group interview lasted about an hour and a half.
    I was then emailed that i had progressed from the group interview and invited to another interview in the residential house i would be working in. This interview lasted for an hour and included being asked questions by a service user.
