    I have been working at Peninsula full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant training, amazing salary structure, first-class facilities, amazing culture, lots and lots of staff benefits (free phone insurance, free coffee's from high street chains, extra holiday etc) the list could go on.
    I've been working for Peninsula now since September 2018 and it is by far the best company I have ever worked for, the training is second to none with time and money being invested into its people.
    The induction for any staff is rather in-depth and inclusive I think as a minimum 3/4 weeks with some inductions/programs lasting months depending on your role.

    Free breakfast on Mondays, Fruit on Wednesday and once a month a beer/wine them on a Friday!

    Peninsula is like marmite to some, they have a certain culture you get out exactly what you put with the right work ethic, attitude and vision anyone can go far but it is not a company that will help you if you are not willing to help yourself.

    Please don't confuse this with needing help, I've seen other member of Peninsula needing a helping hand and the company have gone above and beyond what anyone should/would expect in accommodating them.

    Simple put things are black and white here, with straight talkers, which if you like that you will thrive!

    Cons

    Strict expenses policy that's it.

    Trainee Solicitor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Peninsula (Manchester, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Application online. Phone Interview. Assessment Centre.

    At the Assessment Centre there were three assessors and ten applicants, two of whom already worked at the company. We introduced ourselves with a brief talk. Then there were two brief exercises about what you would do in a certain situation. The only problem was that the two people who worked there already knew the answers as it was what they did. Finally, everyone had to give a thirty second 'elevator pitch' about why they would make a good solicitor. We were sent out while the assessors talked. Then the eight of us who didn't work there were told that we hadn't made it to the second round. The eight of us had taken days of work and had travelled there with no expenses paid.

    Unimpressive.
