    I have been working at Hastings Direct full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic people, a fast moving and supportive culture (starts with customer and colleagues) and lots of opportunities to get involved in interesting projects

    Cons

    Growing a lot so always lots to do! But then I like to be busy so suits me!

    Stay true to what has made the business what it is.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leicester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (Leicester, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Very involved, a dummy interview then a 2 part further interview. 2 x Listening tasks and then up to 10 questions face to face with a team leader.. exhausting. All for a customer representative role!
