General comments that raters have made about Blue Arrow:

The interview was a 160 mile round journey, plus I had to pay for accommodation. For this I received little communication except when I asked. The result of the interview was not given the next day (as I expected) but two weeks later when I asked their customer services having sent several e-mails. There was no specific reasons as to why I was not chosen. I have not received an apology for very bad service. I suspect the agent was to blame rather than the company themselves. I was also appalled to see a far fuller job spec on Jobserve the day after I had the interview. I was told that it was for another hirer. This, I later found out, was probably not true. As it happened I was interviewed for the same spec post with another hirer (a partner of the original hirer) and would have got the job had I not taken another. I would be more than happy to see Blue Arrow defend their actions and point out that these comments are my opinion; had they explained their actions I am sure I would have understood.
