    I have been working at TPP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Having been here a very long time it would be easy to say things have become humdrum - but they haven't! Quite the contrary, we're now entering probably the most exciting time I've ever seen at the company. We've set our minds to and opened up some fantastic opportunities in the past 12-18 months that'll not only propel the company further, but promise to be very challenging and inspirational.

    Of course, the salary and perks are fab, but I'm somewhat used to that by now. What I find really unique is the quality of the people I work with, everyone from the newest to my oldest colleagues is super bright and dedicated to the work we're doing, which just makes the work day a breeze, even though we have to work on some really hard and stressful stuff. In fact, the newest starters are the ones that constantly amaze me - they're definitely quicker and brighter than me! Luckily there's enough new stuff for me to learn and try so I'm not quite obsolete.

    I like that we've managed to hold on to the startup vibe but also have a great work-life balance.

    In summary, the pros are: assorted (many!) perks excellent, working on something that is really going to make a massive positive difference for the world, working with people who share the same mindset, and still being able to develop into new roles.

    Cons

    Scraping the barrel here really, but...

    The flat hierarchy means there's a lot of responsibility on everyone, so you can spend a lot of time worrying about things that you're not directly working on, or end up knackered from thinking about 10 different things in a day.

    Being away from home and some of the longer journeys can be draining, but we do stay in comfortable places and get time off in return so I can't really complain too much.

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TPP (Leeds, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After reading the horror stories about the rudeness of interviews at TPP, I was expecting the worst and braced myself as best I could. In fairness, the interviews are very blunt and cold, if you do not make it to the next stage they will tell you 'Thanks, thats all we need for today', and then email you a rejection a few days later. I applied for the Commercial Manager role and made it through two interviews before hearing that phrase and being sent home. The questions they ask are deliberately designed to throw you off, so prepare to hold your nerve if you have an interview with TPP. I found a decent technique was to try and lead the interview as best you can, ask them where they would like you to sit, practically force them to shake your hand etc... Unfortunately I fell down on one of the logic problems, which I will detail below.

    The building itself has a very weird era, even if I had passed the interviews it's not a place I would choose to work! 28k is certainly generous, but I got the feeling the job would be very cold.

    Interview Questions

    • A logic problem about marbles in a bag.
      Another logic about egg timers.
      Invite four celebrities to come dine with me...
      Who do you like more, me or the other interviewer?

      I had a marketing background as experience and they very bluntly asked me why on earth I had applied for Commercial Manager!   1 Answer
