Somerset Council Interviews
- Anonymous Employee in Taunton, EnglandDeclined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy InterviewApplication
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Somerset Council (Taunton, England) in Apr 2023
InterviewApplied with CV, completing their application form and a statement to Children's Services. Heard nothing 2 weeks after the closing date, as they promise to get back to everyone - they do not! I chased this. HR said Children's Services tried to contact me but did not have my details. How? It was on my CV and twice on the application form I completed. Asked HR how this is possible - never heard anything back (am writing this months later) Went for a corporate job there just after. (see questions below) Got offered it but HR and rejected my last employer as a reference - why? plus took a few weeks to process it, I accepted an offer elsewhere. Glad I declined. Totally and utterly incompetent Council - avoid, avoid, avoid!!!!Interview
