I have been working at Guardian News & Media full-time (Less than a year)
Great work environment and flexible working conditions
Not great direction or leadership
Advice to Management
Be more focused on progress and don’t try and be everyone’s mate all the time
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Guardian News & Media (King's Cross, England) in March 2018.
I applied online through the careers page.
They were slow responding. It took several months to hear back from the initial application in which time I completed multiple interviews and accepted an offer elsewhere.
The people were nice and worked with me to arrange an appropriate interview date. There wasn't much hope initially as all of their interview times were during shifts I mentioned I'd be working. It was a slow process, which they mentioned would be difficult due to them already having started second and third stage interviews with other candidates. At the least, it is commendable that they worked their hardest to try and find a mutually acceptable time.
The office seemed like a nice environment and from what I experienced it was fairly clean and relatively modern.
The interview itself was fairly straightforward. I was taken to a meeting room with a few members of staff and asked fairly standard questions. The interviewers didn't seem very enthusiastic however the content of the interview was informative and I learnt quite a bit about how the team functions.
Following the interview I was told that they would contact me in a week or two, however I still have yet to hear from them (almost 3 months later.) Due to having started somewhere else, I felt more skeptical about any potential offer than I otherwise would have been. Ultimately they could improve their processes by being more responsive, both following an application and following any interview. Communication is important.
+ Nice office
+ Nice people
- Rubbish response times
