    I was welcomed to the HQ, and was impressed with the internals of the building. Good layout and decoration, and plenty of services for employees.

    1-1 interview with the department manager, pleasant demeanour. Clear job description with good scope for “self expression” and growth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mamas & Papas in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online with a very quick application and heard within 2 hours for a telephone interview. I had no response to my email reply but the following day I was called and asked if I would like to attend a face to face interview the day after which I did. The interviewer wasn’t very enthusiastic and quite miserable, they even called me over by the wrong name. They actually put a lot of my answers down which felt quite unprofessional and the interviewer looked like they wanted to be somewhere else and kept looking away and checking the door. Just all very unprofessional and off putting.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mamas & Papas (Huddersfield, England) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by a talent spotting agency who were working on Mamas & Papas behalf. I was basically sold the job, rather than them asking me to sell myself – they told me about how the company was going through some big changes and how this would be a great time to start working there. I was then offered an interview with the customer service manager, who again, pretty much sold me the job – I didn’t speak much throughout the interview at all, her main interest in me was whether I could work weekends and how I would feel about working under intense pressure. Within 2 hours I was called by the agency and asked if I would consider lowering my salary expectations as the company did not feel I had potential to work as a level 3 handler there (with a starting wage of £17k).
