Just throwing my two cents in here -
I applied as a spur of the moment thing at the start of December 2018 - primarily because I saw they were hiring on their Instagram. I did (thankfully) well and got all the way through to the interview - which was a lot of fun! They’re all lovely people in the London office! Got a call about 5 days later to say they’d like to make me an offer which I very excitedly accepted(!!!)
I can’t wait to get stuck in - get to the training and generally meet everyone. However, I’m still waiting to start. I was told it’d be the end of February and got a call saying they had over forecast training groups (or something similar) and there wasn’t enough actual work at the moment for us new starts to get our teeth into.
A very lovely lady called me, was really apologetic and asked if I’d be okay with delaying my start date until March now. I felt like I couldn’t really say no. So I’m starting the middle of March now. Hopefully.
My point in mentioning this is that even if you do get the interview passed you and get an offer, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be starting any time soon.
Between the date of the phone call to say I’d got the job to actually starting will be nearly 3 months to the day.
Prepare yourself for that possibility. I know it’s completely down to the sheer amount of hiring they’ve been doing over the past 6/12 months or so. But still - something to be aware of.
I really can’t wait to start - and to meet some Monzonauts at the office! Plus, the joy I will have handing my notice in to my current employer will be unreal! I’ve been wanting to do this for years now!
Also - Hi! I’m new!
