Advice to Management
GET AIRCONDITIONING / BETTER HEATING - YOUR STAFF ARE GREAT SO DONT FREEZE THEM
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Screwfix (Stevenage, England (UK)).
Applied online, the took two weeks to reply. Was just a quick call to arrange an interview no telephone interview. The interview went exceptionally well and didn't feel intimidated.
They made it out they were going to call me back by the end of the day. Took photocopies of both passport and national insurance card. Odd as they didn't offer me the job and wanted my time and preparation and didn't actually need my private information.
Anyway no call or reply even called up the bran h was told the manager would call back but he never did!
The staff looked friendly
