    Flexible hours to fit around uni
    Loads of overtime if wanted
    Options for development - I didnt take them, but they were available
    The team I worked in was great!

    Customer Service Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Screwfix (Stevenage, England (UK)).

    Interview

    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
