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

    Pros

    People are good to work with, 'can do' culture, not too much hierarchy, Directors walk and talk with the teams. High engagement levels in the stores.

    Cons

    Edge just being taken off things as Kingfisher (owners) take more control.

    Service Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Screwfix (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in December-2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received a quick telephone interview and the person I spoke with, was really friendly an put me at ease. I was then asked to come to the store for a face to face interview. Was interviewed by 2 people (Assistant Manager and Supervisor) Both really nice and again, I was made to feel at ease.

    Everyone was really down to earth and I was told it could take until the end of the week, possibly the following week to hear back. I actually got a call that night offering me the position! I accepted my offer and I have nothing but positive things to say at the moment.
    Questions were typical competency based on customer service abilities and past experiences of doing so as listed in previous posts.
