    I worked at GSM London full-time

    Pros

    The students and one or two members of staff were the only good part of being here during my time

    Cons

    The staff who teach seem more concerned with their pay rather than students learning
    The finance department have told blatant lies to students regarding finance and the promise of repaying them once the student loans come through just to receive money from student and then the loans and keeping both and refusing to repay the students. Told student that they could not wait for the loan and the students studies would be curtailed without immediate payment. They try to claim for money after the students have graduated and send threatening emails stating they will withhold the degree without payment even though there is no valid reason to pay
    Students receive little to no help when they are facing difficulties with lecturers
    Marks for pieces of work are not explained, it almost appears that the students pass and fail depending on the mood of the marker rather than on merit of the work produced

    Advice to Management

    Repay the students the money you promised to pay back and take into account the students grievances and help the students prosper with their degrees. Otherwise this place will end up in ruins as I can promise I am not the only one with these views. Honor your word and help the students

    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
