    I have been working at GSM London full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Don’t believe the negatives, it’s always easier to spread bad news. I’ve been working at GSM for over 5 years and my management team is incredibly encouraging and always ready to listen. I’ve never felt more valued and appreciated. My team is great, my line manager is wonderful and the Dean and her teams are amazing. The current HR team is forward thinking and there to support staff like it never has before. The college is incredibly supportive of its students, but there are rules and regulations that have to be followed. It’s easy to blame people when you don’t get what you want, but a little self reflection is necessary... did you comply and do everything that was required from you?
    Whenever suggestions are made to improve the organisation or programmes, they are met with interest and encouragement. GSM values there own and provide great opportunities for staff to further develop themselves to achieve their own potentials. Staff are given opportunities to expand their knowledge and experience, which is rare nowadays. To say they are supportive is an understatement.

    Cons

    It is normal for any SMBE to feel growing pains as it expands and this is the only con that GSM can be accused off. However there is a strong management team in place that is driving it forward in a very strong and positive way.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for putting the right people in place and listening to those that have contributions to make. I am happy to be at GSM and look forward to being part of the journey.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at GSM London (London, England (UK)) in April-2017.

    Interview

    I went through a two-stage interview process. Both of the interviews had two interviewers each (one of whom is a Manager/senior and the other is an Assistant.

    They will ask a lot of questions that may come across as they are experts, but don't be fooled by this - as once you join the organisation, you will realise that there are no set processes, the managers are incapable of doing their job, HR cannot provide adequate support as they themselves are not qualified.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your working style?
      What kind of manager do you work well under?
      Give me an example of when you overcame a tough customer?

      These are basic ones, they also have some technical questions depending on the type of your role.   Answer Question
