t first the representative was always ringing me and I felt this was good as they wanted to help me find work. The rep then said she had put my CV forward to ARAG the insurance company as she felt my cv was strong enough.
Sure enough a day or 2 after this conversation I had another phone call to say that I had been short listed for an interview. This is where it gets interesting. I received an email to confirm my interview date and also an invitation to meet my rep to discuss the vacancy and to get registered with the reed system. all pretty standard stuff.
I received a phone call the day before the interview to make sure I was attending ( commission hunger starting to show). followed by an email to stress how hard they had worked to get me my interview- again Commission driven beast rearing its ugly head!)
I attended my interview and was told by Arag that I would hear feedback either way by the end of the week. I waited until the end of the week but I heard nothing- so I gave reed the benefit of the doubt and waited until Monday.
I called Laura my Rep on the number she gave me on her "professional business card" she handed to me at our meeting- however no answer.
So again giving her the benefit of the doubt I e-mailed her so ask if she had any feedback for me. she almost instantly emailed me back to say she was meeting with my interviewer that afternoon and would have feed back for me shortly. TWO WEEKS LATER after some quite stressful chasing of my rep I still had not received my feedback.
I feel the way I was snubbed by reed global was truly disgusting. I made effort to attend this interview and I feel that I deserved to get the feedback to improve my interview techniques. also noticed on Reed.co.uk website that they make up jobs to fill the site and make it look amazing. and also they decide if they want you to put you forward for the interview that you express interest in. which is very unfair. if I want to apply for a job I don't want some snotty little cow in a suit telling me I'm not allowed.
my advice would be to not even contact reed. they are just a commission hungry monster who claim to care....but they only care about the money! personally if I worked for reed and treated people in that way I would struggle to sleep at night.
