    I have been working at Scottish Water part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team to work for, fair and flexible, inclusive and opportunities for varied work and pretty decent pay and benefits (bearing in mind it's public sector so base pay and bonus are never going to be top whack but pension is excellent). SW has a conscience regards the environment and feels responsibility to serve the people of Scotland well, aiming high to be innovative and not rest on our laurels.

    Cons

    Public sector salary scales; change can be slower with more bureaucratic processes to wade through as there's politics and regulatory bodies to convince en route.

    Advice to Management

    Things are on the right track! SW is a great place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scottish Water.

    Interview

    The whole process from application to interview took longer than I would normally expect, and involved an initial video interview followed by a face to face interview. The face to face interview was fairly relaxed with typical competency based questions, mainly about customer service experience. After the interview it took about 2 weeks before I received an update by email.
