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

    Pros

    Great people, team spirit, really look after the staff, lots to get involved with, promote from within, free fruit, social activities, flexible, listen to ideas etc, overall really enjoy working here and have no plans to look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Speed of things changing can sometimes be a bit much but it means the company is growing and doing well, and really it keeps you on your toes so not really a negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sykes Cottages (Chester, England) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There were a number of steps in the process involving 3 separate interviews/discussions. The skyes team were professional and well versed. They knew exactly what they were looking for. The process was both professional, structured but relatively informal
