    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Peninsula.

    Interview

    Peninsula aren't a trustworthy company. When we arrived they had a big presentation about the fact that Peninsula was a great place to work, but one month before the job was due to start (so after I'd already told my employer I was leaving.) They cancelled the entire graduate marketing scheme. Putting myself and four others out of a job. I turned down other job offers to take the job at Peninsula. Luckily I was offered another grad scheme but it meant I needed to wait almost a year for it to start. Despite this their CEO takes any chance he gets to talk about what a great company for graduates they are.

    Actual interview was okay, presentation followed by a couple of group tasks and a face-to-face interview.

I emailed to check if we were still on for our scheduled interview but received no answer.

    Human Resources Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blackrock, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Peninsula (Blackrock, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    In house recruiter arranged phone screening for 9am. Never called, so knowing how busy we all are, I sent an email. Recruiter ignored the fact that she did not call me and just answered that she do not have a time for call now, this was 3pm. Finally she called, one week later, saying this is a 5min call and can I go trough my CV and my experience, 2 min into the call, when I was talking what systems I use when dealing with cases, she cuts me off and says “well in this role we deal over the phone, with queries, I will let you know if you passed to the next round”.Never heard from anybody again!! I did not even get a chance to say “oh yes, I do that too”. It is
    unbelievable, that company who pride themselves for providing the best client service, have recruiters behaving this way. Are they not representing company too?

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Peninsula (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    The HR Assistant emailed me requesting to book a phone interview after applying online through the Indeed website. 15 minutes after the phone interview I received an email inviting me for an in-person interview at Peninsula's office. On the day of the interview I arrived early, and they hold me there for almost an hour and a half. First, we went through the interview and then simulation tests. At the end of the interview, they asked me to send to their HR Assistant two or three work references and that they would get back to me within 1 or 2 days with a response. As requested, I gave them my contact references and they never emailed me back or responded to me regarding my interview process. They basically ignored me and probably moved forward with other people's processes. Very disrespectful and without any consideration.

    Employment Solicitor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Peninsula (Manchester, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Initial telephone consultation followed by an interview a week later which lasted almost 2 hours. Interview process was very in-depth, lots of aptitude questions. Also involved shadowing a staff member for 20 mins after the interview.
    The 2 interviewers were very nice & easy to converse with. I felt very confident leaving the interview but surprised I was turned down, but overall seemed like a friendly place, more of a call centre set up than a traditional law firm.

    Graduate Role Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Peninsula (London, England).

    Interview

    Quick phone interview and then assessment centre. I was disrespected during the assessment centre by one of the recruiters, I already knew she was not even considering me if she had audacity to act the way she did. Also, to save money, they announced who they picked foe 1 on 1 interviews and the ones who got rejected had to take lift back to the first floor. One of the most awkward days of my life.
