Advice to Management
Stay listening to us
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Candlelight Care (Glastonbury, England) in September 2017.
The interview was taken by the branch Manager. I was made to feel very welcome by the receptionist upon arrival who then offered me a drink and lead me to the Manager's office. The Manager enabled me to feel very relaxed, listened to and encouraged. I was asked about the hours I would like to work and we agreed these during interview. The interview was documented by the Receptionist and I was given opportunities to ask questions. I found all the staff I encountered on this day to be very friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere in the building was very relaxed and I left feeling as though I was a part of the team instantly.
