    I have been working at British Gas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits ie, share incentive scheme, cycle to work, discounts etc. Flexible working hours which is great for people managing work and family life. Opportunities to travel to various sites around the UK and overall great employer to work for

    Cons

    Lots of change going on in the business just now which is making the future uncertain for lots of staff due to cost reduction and redundancies

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at British Gas.

    Interview

    Recruiter hadn't read my cv and went ahead to let me know. Interview was fine except for that horrible start.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Bait and switch tactics used.
