    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Great communication at first. Applying for the role was straight forward. From being contacted by the Travis Perkins team to arranging and completing the phone interview was plain sailing. Learning about the business and finding out about the culture and opportunities available was really exciting and the hunger set in to join them!! However after that it was really disappointing. I was told that I had been successful on the phone interview and that they wanted to invite me to a second interview the following week....great!! Then that's where the communication ended....I had to contact them to be told "don't worry we're just firming up dates for interviews and completing assessment centres for assistant managers, as soon as they're complete we will contact you to set up the interview". I'm still waiting! I've contacted them a couple of times but sadly to no avail. This is really disappointing as I could envision working for such a great employer whose values rang true with my own. I was left feeling like I'd been dumped after a really great first date...come on Travis Perkins keep to your word!
