    I have been working at OVO Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to earn monthly bonus (be safe and be nice to customers = £££’s)
    £60 a month on a debit card to buy lunch
    4% on top of salary for benefits
    One day every 3 months to go on any training course you like
    Full day team socials every 3 months (paintball, go karting etc)
    Everyone on a level. Managers know everyone’s name and are approachable.
    Taken for meal after monthly meetings

    Cons

    Workload can vary. Some days 5 meters, some days 2.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it as it is. I’ve worked in other places and this is a thousand times better. Feel lucky I got in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OVO Energy (Bristol, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Process took four weeks from application to rejection. This included 6 hours of interviewing, which included a 30 minute phone interview, a 1 hour 30 minute face to face interview, a 2 hour code test on Codility, a 1 hour pair programming exercise, a 30 minute interview with HR, and a 30 minute interview with a hiring manager.

    Overall the process was inefficient and repetitive and gave me a negative impression of Ovo.
