I have been working at Screwfix full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are countless pros. Real team spirit, fantastic opportunities to progress and make a career for yourself (note, this does not include slackers!), great customer base, supportive staff and managers. In company training in health and safety, first aid and city and guilds in retail management.

Cons

Some of the IT programs can be a little frustrating to work with at times, but what computers aren't? Hiring is well balanced but there can sometimes be little rifts in the team, but that is generally down to store moral and the quality of managers.

Advice to Management

Keep pushing and supporting the staff. Look out for potential staff who could really benefit from some encouragement and praise and get the most out of them!

    I have been working at Screwfix full-time

    Pros

    Its absolutely fantastic! Its a young company, and Im a young person, they look after everyone they employ! They are very diverse and equal when hiring employees. It is a very delightful place to work, not only the workload you do, but the persons you work with; they are friendly and the work is fun! As its such a young company, its very easy and open to move up through, your options broaden the more you gain knowledge of what to do next. The benefits are fantastic, you get 20% staff discount; and after probation you get a further 20% discount at B&Q, the healthcare depending on what you pay is great, includes free dental etc. Knowing my pension is sorted too! I can try to think of ways there isnt good about this company; but I cant find any.

    Cons

    Its mainly shift work, you need to keep a look of your shifts on the rota throughout the week as it can always change. I have no problem with that, but anybody needing to stick to a routine, might be stuck with shifts they may not want, or wont be able to be given the same shifts all the way through each month.

    Advice to Management

    None! Management are understanding, caring, and very helpful! They give you regular feedback and also ask for ways to improve! They do their best to make you comfortable with the work you do and have you get shift work youd prefer.
