    I worked at learndirect full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere and not much work as they had lost the license to deliver the courses we were employed to sell!

    Cons

    Incompetent director and good staff leaving.

    Advice to Management

    I guess it's too late now!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at learndirect.

    Interview

    Interesting introduction to the company; the manager outlining company history, preferring to do most of the talking and missing the opportunity to see if I had done any research. It was a very relaxed first meeting, but I came away with a real sense that the 2nd interview would be a lot more intense.
