    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Impellam Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the manager who actually brought in a recruiter to interview me because she had no idea what my job would really entail. She had no experience as a manager and pretty much got the job by default and there was only 2 people working in the office at the time including me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Impellam Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very conversational, easy, did not ask any difficult questions. I think they were looking more for a culture fit for this entry level position. I met with 2 different managers in the office. Neither of them asked very many work related questions, it was more about my personality and how I would fit in with the team.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Luton, East of England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Impellam Group (Luton, East of England, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Discussion with the recruitment agency to determine whether I could be put forward to the company. A telephone interview followed by a further telephone call to cover off any questions and determine interest and finally a face-to-face interview.
    On the day of the interview a car parking space had not been booked, neither had a room. It was a hot day and a 2 hr round-trip and neither refreshment nor toilets were offered. I was told I would be informed of their decision by close of play the following day - no communication was ever received. I had to chase the recruitment agent (part of the Impellam Group) to find out the results of the interview. Feedback was not provided even after it was specifically requested.
    The entire process made me feel as if the company does not value contractors. Based on my experience I would not recommend the Impellam Group to any of my contacts.

    Head of Brand Consltancy Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Impellam Group (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    After being contacted by a specialist recruitment agency, I was informed of the role and if I would be interested. I spent a hour with the agency talking over the role and team structure. Once this was completed I was then invited to meet one of the senior leadership team and had a further 2 meetings, on my experience and suitability. At this point I was offered a role but I was asked to provide referees and until they were confirmed I was not sent the contract - which is standard procedure.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Impellam Group (London, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    3 interview stage process, a complete waste of time. Feedback was that I was perfect for the job but feared I would book holidays when projects got difficult as that is what I had done in the past. This angered me slightly as I have never booked holidays on projects that have got difficult. If I had every been on holiday during a go-live (for my birthday) where a project had been delayed I had even gone so far as to log on whilst on holiday and travel to local offices if required. This feedback I took offensively as I have always been that person that goes above and beyond on all my projects.

    Also they interviewed a contractor (myself) for a perm role and then said they were concerned (1 month later) that as a contractor i would have trouble adapting to the life of a perm member of staff, i.e. what would stop a contractor from getting up and leaving, a question I think the panel should have considered before asking an applicant to get involved in the interview process. Again a comment which is fair enough but why even consider contractors in the mix for the application if that is going to be a fear.

    My general impression from the interview process was that the project role Impellam were looking to fill had a lot of issues, there was a lot of fear and a lot of politics. During the 3rd interview I asked a question re the main concerns on the project and was told that I would have to sign an NDA to get an answer to that question. The selection committee sounded nice enough, I am glad it ended the way it did as the offer I did get in the end from a different company is pretty impressive.

    My advise to Impellam - consider your applicants time when interviewing, provide honest feedback.
