    Client Services Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PDSA (London, England) in February 2014.

    Interview

    After an annoying box filling exercise answering questions loosely related to the role; there was a subsequent assessment day. There was no opportunity to ask questions about the organisation owing to the assessment day setting where there was no one on one time to have a quality conversation about the role.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PDSA (Telford, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Online application then telephone interview then assessment day then further interview, the PDSA have been advertising for an Area Manager for the East Midlands since Autumn 2015 It's now May 2016 I can't believe they haven't found a suitable candidate "who on earth are they looking for" the head of retail recently left the 'charity' without even having a job in place to go to, the retail operations manager left too as did the CFO and most of his team, shop managers and their assistants have been leaving the 'set up' in droves too this clearly is a company in crisis. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME APPLYING FOR A VACANCY AT THIS ORGANISATION!!! they are clearly using the application process to brainstorm ideas from hopeful candidates, there's nothing charitable about this so called charity.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PDSA (Christchurch, England) in January 2014.

    very short and only one question didn't really have to say much to be honest, just had to bring in my CV in and they said when do you want to start. A week later I had the job and was working in the shop, they were very laid back about times you couldn't attend volunteering and after 6 months they just let me leave whenever I wanted.

    Retail Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Telford, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PDSA (Telford, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Once again, on a pattern of re-advertising this position which I would suggest not to apply wasting your time, energy and money going for this position has no job there.

    I personal think they are looking for ideas on the cheap and have no idea how to run a retail business, getting excited of producing a 1.5% profit is shameful !!!! to say that most goods they sell are donated. They live in a fantasy world of we are great, but in reality are self indulgent
