    I have been working at Toolstation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good communication between most levels of the buisness.

    Clear set goals and chances for personal growth.

    Varied team of people all working towards the same goal.

    Company open to new ideas to progress all areas of the buiness.

    All members of upper management are easily approachable and open to hear ideas and offer support

    Cons

    Wages are not as competitive as other similar businesses, however they're has been some great improvements on this.

    The IT department is holding the company back.

    Hours in store can be quite stretched at times especially with the new 8pm finishes.

    Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Barrow, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Toolstation (Barrow, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Online application, followed by a interview in store with manager. Standard retail questions asked. A small maths test lasting around 20/25 mins. Small tour of the building and how the system works. Easy enough to pick up.
