I have been working at Hastings Direct full-time (More than a year)
Great place to work. I can sit here and list all the reasons as to why but then it just seems like i am preaching. so I think I will do it a bit different and talk you through the top 3 reasons why.
Approachable: I don’t think I have ever worked for a company where all senior staff as so approachable and make sure that any views you have feel valued and that they will be looked into no matter what.
putting the college first: No other companies do this. Name me a company which looks at what they want first and then says let’s do it. being full time work till 7 at the latest and they will get part time teams to work the rest or the more casual dress code due to feedback received.
Knowing what you do helps: many companies you just feel like another stat. another one which brings in the numbers. Not at Hastings you know that you job is to do your best and do what is right for the customer and with that they even reward you for it. each month they will run the team of the month, employee of the month and all voted for by the staff.
Overall you want to work somewhere you feel valued, make a difference and respected. This is the company for you.
This company doesnt have cons just pros
Advice to Management
Keep it up and keep looking forward
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (Leicester, England) in November 2017.
I applied directly through Hastings direct website. 2 week later I had a phone call it was basically getting to know me. Hastings then invited me to do a video interview which then they ask you 3 questions to answer within a time limit. I received a call the following day which I have passed. The next step was face to face interview which is around 2 hours long including presentation etc. The whole process was challenging but at the same time I enjoyed it. You get a very quick response and feedback on your interviews! I was offered a job the following day. :)
