    Pros

    The money is ok, but you’ve got to be fairly cold to stay just for that. I know many people who left and got better salaries

    Cons

    I always find it interesting that after a period of really negative reviews all of a sudden a million positive ones turn up! This is because everyone is coerced into writing them and fear for their jobs so much they do it. I’ve heard management tel each other to write reviews every 6 months so a lot of the positive ones you read here are written by the same people.
    Management are bullies. Even the inner circle isn’t safe. 4 directors were fired under mysterious circumstances when I was there. If you’re a yes man, you’ll do ok, but in the end people begin to question the company ethics and that’s when you’re out.

    Numerous colleagues of mine told me that they had been called into meetings by the M.D. to dish dirt on me which was then used against me. If you refused to dish any dirt, a mark was put against your name and you were the next out. I’ve even heard management laugh when they read these types of comments on reviews because they know it’s true.

    The awful CEO has said a number of racist and misogynistic things that I have personally heard and would personally be willing to share with anyone should there be any sort of investigation into how this company operates. It’s morally corrupt and works under the guise of helping people when really he’s only interested in lining his own pockets. I once saw this man throw away a sandwhich because the egg yolk was too runny. The poor member of staff who purchased the sandwhich was then fired. How appalling

    Advice to Management

    What’s even the point? You sing to your own hymn sheet but people are talking with their feet. Good luck having a company in a few years

    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
