    Pros

    Work Environment - SearchLabs promotes a casual and relaxed working environment which works really well. Recently introduced flexible working hours after identifying a desire for it, making it much easier to find a good work/life balance.

    People - The best thing about the company, everyone is so kind, fun and encouraging in every team of the company making everyday working life a lot more enjoyable.

    Opportunities - I feel like I've been given lots of opportunities to learn and progress during my time at Search Laboratory - I also feel that the recent changes to team structures makes progression internally a lot clearer and has introduced roles in certain areas where people would previously hit a ceiling.

    Perks - Really enjoy the games room on the top floor, with games such as table tennis, darts, pool, shuffleboard, table football to relax at lunch or after work. The healthcare benefits are also really good!

    Cons

    Could forward plan with recruitment needs better - Often feels as though it's reactive rather than proactive.

    PPC Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Search Laboratory (Leeds, England).

    Interview

    Fairly simple process, consisting of CV screening, phone interview and two face to face interviews. The latter requiring you to complete a PPC task which you'll need to present.

    The company initially showed huge interest and showed more interest as the interview process went on.

    However, after the final interview things got very weird and it seemed as if they wanted to cut communication completely. They also lied about leaving voicemails while also saying that they had the wrong number when waiting to hear about the outcome, then all of a sudden they could ring me. Not to mention I was called multiple times prior to the final interview.

    After waiting over a week and sending an email inquiring about the result of the interview, they called me to only provide very vague feedback and it all seemed quite weird. I'm pretty sure it's because I mentioned that I have chronic pain when they asked about hobbies. Here, I told them I like to do yoga to help manage and have picked it up as a hobby. I'm quite certain this is the reason for the rejection but that's understandable, probably not the thing to mention in an interview but I've learnt a lot.

    I was told initially that I wouldn't need perfect knowledge on PPC as they would provide the training, but they do require you to learn a lot for the final interview. This interview required a presentation on PPC and an excel task. I asked for feedback on my excel task and I was told this was perfect, however they said other questions showed 'no attention to detail'. For example, I was tasked with creating an ad. for a technology company and I mentioned that my ad doesn't look exactly like Google ads but the information is all the same. You wouldn't be required to format the ads yourself as a PPC exec. as google handles this themselves, so I didn't think anything of it. They thought the ad. copy was very good but I was rejected on the basis this didn't look like a Google ad.

    To be honest, PPC is very simple and automation will probably end up taking over the job so look for a more forward thinking company... ps if you mention automation and it's role in search marketing when given the chance to question, you'll most definitely stand out but you won't receive a great answer.
