Retail Assistant in London, Greater London
on 25 May 2022
Professional place to work but generally boring
The work is easy enough, allthough sometimes you have to work hard with few breaks.They have zero tolerance if you don't follow health and safety/don't turn up on time, things like that, it's a professional company.People are ok, generally nice, management often lacks understanding of what the service assistants actually are doing day to day which can lead to communication issues.

Retail Supervisor in Swinton, Greater Manchester
on 21 May 2022
Great as a sales assistant, terrible as a supervisor
If you do work for screwfix stick to part time.Once you move up to a management role you are shipped to a different branch, which means you will have no free time and whoever does the rotas makes sure they and (usually the lazy workers) are all nice and cushie but you will have to work unsociable hours and get told its because of the needs of the business. Oh and its only a pound more to be supervisor than to be sales assistant and it doesn't make up for the abuse you get from customers nor does it make up for being used like a door mat. Oh you also lose any benefits screwfix (rarely) give to sales assistants. All for an extra pound an hour. Do not progress.

Fun workplace
The company can be quite stressful to work for sometimes. However, the pay is good and job security is guaranteed. Management can be mixed at times as some of the managers are not the best.
Recruiter in Yeovil, Somerset

Great place to work
Started off working in the business centre as a customer service advisor, which was fast paced and meant dealing with a wide range of enquiries. I am currently on a 6 month secondment working in recruitment which i thoroughly enjoy. Have built great relationships in the business. The business is very keen on helping you build the skills you need to progress

Interview questions

They asked me if I can make a decent round of toast

Shared on 11 July 2018

I've seen two people interviewed at our store. First five minutes were standard retail questions The rest of the time was completely irrelevant to the job and even included questions like "do you make a good tea?".

Shared on 22 June 2018

The interview starts in the usual way talking about your CV, your previous work experience and then why you want to work for Screwfix. Then it becomes very much a general retail interview - "Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone else to achieve a goal" etc
