179 questions about working at B&Q
Thanks to everyone who's left suggestions here, it's useful to have your feedback, good and bad, and also interesting to see how wildly engagement varies region to region, store to store. Retail is a tough business for everyone, and changes to how our customers shop, and how this affects how we function as a business will always cause friction. Especially whilst new ways of working settle in, something that we all work hard to minimise.This will be fed back to the relevant Regional Managers and we'll do everything we can as a support function to continue to make B&Q a good home for everyone.

The dress code is smart casual so wear something comfortable and appropriate for an interview.
