I have been working at First Central full-time (Less than a year)
Very friendly from the outset, strong Learning and Development team with a focus on welcoming the new starters. I enjoyed the fact we are made to feel welcome and part of the team within the first day. The training is extremely thorough, and questions are encouraged. First week had lots of time to get to know people, meet with management, invited straight away to the anniversary event and double checked to make sure we got the invites. Genuinely a very friendly place, actively encouraging friendliness to everyone including colleagues, customers, and third parties. There is zero blame culture which is extremely refreshing. The work life balance is good. We have some colleagues who need to start late or have a non working day due to family commitments. Due to COVID we are all working from home, and everyone is very understanding if we need to answer the door, sort out the kids or see to barking dogs. It's really reassuring this has been taken into consideration.
It's only been my first week, and so far haven't come across any cons. Will update this review in the future if this comes about, as it's important to give a balanced feel. At present, happy to say no cons.
Advice to Management
No directions from me. The friendly feel really suits me, and I'm glad the learning and development is heavily focused on - it really stands out. Keep it up!
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at First Central (Manchester, England).
Strengths based interview where you have to give examples. A few technical questions at the end on the actual job role. 1 on 1 with the hiring manager (HR representative is also there).
