    HR Business Partner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ScS Sofas (Sunderland, North East England, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    After submitting an online application I was contacted by the internal recruitment team to ask if I could attend an interview at 6pm that evening at an ScS store with the HR Director. I attended the interview despite the short notice and the following week I was contacted again to confirm that they would like to invite me to a 2nd interview at their Head Office in Sunderland (I live in Wakefield, West Yorkshire). I was informed that I would need to deliver a 15 minute presentation covering how I would approach the role in the first 6 months. I was sent the brief on the Friday for an interview the following Tuesday.

    At the interview I was told that I would be contacted within one week with the decision. One week later I hadn't heard anything and so tried to contact the internal recruitment team. I called a few times but the number was always engaged or rang out and so I left a voice message explaining who I was and requesting that someone call me to confirm the outcome. No one returned my call and then 11 days after the interview I received an automatic email from there recruitment system confirming that I had been unsuccessful.

    Personally I feel that if a candidate has gone to the trouble of travelling significantly out of their way and has spent time producing a presentation in preparation for an interview, then they deserve the courtesy of someone calling them to confirm they have been unsuccessful and giving them some constructive feedback. I cant think that I have ever had such a poor candidate experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newcastle upon Tyne, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ScS Sofas (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and then got a call for a face to face interview at SCS head office which involved competency based questions and general questions like about the educational background etc. The interview went quite well and the feedback was positive. I was told that by next week before thursday they will reply back to me and not before that since the team is quite busy with some upcoming event , I was clearly told this and then a strange thing happens. I got an email after few hours saying that my application was unsuccessful (never expected such a quick reply) and I can request a feedback in detail regarding the same. I requested for a feedback and there was no reply from the HR Team/company nothing at all! The person who took my interview seemed more nervous and was intervened by his boss/senior inbetween the interview.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunderland, North East England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ScS Sofas (Sunderland, North East England, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Had to fill out a long form that duplicated the details of my CV prior to interview.

    Interview was one stage with one person. They requested I talk through my CV and did not ask any qualifying or clarifying questions about it or probe into my experience.

    Had to intentionally elaborate on everything to display my skills but didn't expect the interview to end once I had finished explaining my experience.

    Interview lasted 25 mins.

    I never received any further correspondence and thus had to assume I was unsuccessful.

    Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ScS Sofas.

    Interview

    Kindly declined to carry on with interview and left as the pay offered was unacceptable. I believe they were trying to get alot of experience for as little money as possible either that or they do not read the CVs they request from applicants. I also dont see the point of being asked for interview on the back of CV and then request you fill in an application form.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ScS Sofas (Lincoln, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    1st time I turned up they sent me away saying they didn't know I was coming this happened 3 times! Then when finally had interview they sat me down and said I would earn 50k pa minimum??? lucky to earn half that. Don't do it! I was lied to from day one and should of gone with my gut instinct. I have worked for many great companies in my 20 years of sales and this company truly is rotten to the core. I never thought I would ever bad mouth a company but people seriously need to know the facts and if you still want to work there after reading this I look forward to reading your review in 3 months time.

    If you get an offer well done, you'll get one somewhere else too, choose the other!
