“Angry ”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by Orlandoq1975 (1 review written)


I met with KB in he Birmingham branch about a role , they seemed very enthusiastic to register me.
They barely spoke with me but once I got an interview they were almost harassing me and flooding my inbox.
At this point alarms bells were going , I had been told that I was the only candidate from katie baird going for the role but discovered that their had been some sort of conveyer belt of people going for this job who had failed within the last week.
KB explained where the others had gone wrong and gave me in theory everything I need to know.
I went for the interview and got told I had a second interview by the company.
I told KB who then wanted to sort things and took all the information from me and chased the company for feedback.
I then found out almost a week later that the company had decided not to give me a second interview.
I was naturally disappointed but I was more disappointed when KB seemed to take little interest in me now and promised to call me back.
I suspect my feedback will be now used by KB to further KB's chances of getting he role.
Stay away from this company, constant apologies and lies.
Judging but the reviews on here it may as well be a boiler room.

What most probably happened is that KB asked the company for a finders fee and the company did not want to pay it. Always get feedback from the company yourself - a lot of companies are quite happy to give feedback, most recruitment companies don't actually want to put you in a permanent position as it will make them very little money. They want to recruit and sign you onto their books because 1 - they will get commission for it, and 2 - they will constantly bug you with temp and contract jobs which will make them a tidy sum whilst you will see very little in return.
