    I have been working at Skipton Building Society (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with a great team, treating customers as "peopl e" and no pressure from Skipton to "mis-sell" Friendly atmosphere and wages not bad either! Hard work recognised

    Cons

    Would rather work all day Saturday and have one day off through the week. Paperwork often duplicated which is really unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Working on a Saturday morning sometimes does not suit customers needs. Perhaps working all day Saturday would be better and offer staff a day off through the week.

    Customer Adviser Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Amersham, England) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was ok. The follow up was mostly through an agency. My interview was thoroughly taken by an Area Manager and the Branch Manager. The discussion about the role, about my skills and experiences, expectations and role play.
    After my interview I didn't hear from them as they told me it'd be by couple of days. I had to keep ringing the agency after couple of days to find out the outcome of my interview. After several calls I got the reply from the agency. It was a let down by The Building society as they didn't bother to send me any email or communication after my interview. I also asked for a feedback and they still haven't come back to me about the reason for not being successful. Very poor communication from them.
