    Pros

    - Fast paced, challenging work environment that always keeps you on your toes
    - Feels like a real family, everyone supports each other and helps each other out
    - CEO is great, knows everyone by name and takes the time to have a chat and really feel like he is invested in the company and the people
    - Looks of opportunity to socialise with staff, usually organised by Sykes
    - Good holiday package and bonus scheme and other benefits
    - The company is growing so fast that there are always new opportunities

    Cons

    - Can be a lot of pressure at times BUT there is always someone to support you if you are struggling

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, the senior leadership team clearly do care about everyone and the regular pulse surveys, monthly floor briefs and updates from yourselves is really beneficial - please keep listening and adapting!

    Positive Experience
    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
