Customer Service Advisor in Falkirk, Falkirk

Easy job, bad management
Worked there for almost a year before I decided to leave, most of the people where okay to work with but the first manager I worked with was very rude.

Suits me fine
I'm interested in tools and DIY and have learned a lot. Good atmosphere in store most of the time, lucky to have a nice manager and colleagues. Sometimes a bit understaffed. Duties quite varied.

1 year at Toolstation
Toolstation is a great place to work you meet amazing talented fun people a lot of the time. The main issue is the revolving door of RMs and not enough support to the teams on the ground- in store. The stores are run on skeleton crews to cut costs which is great in creating a tight knit team but it also causes an unhealthy culture of “not letting the store down” people need to be at home and rest too. The pressures of management are easy to overcome with the correct training, it’s unfortunate not everyone gets to receive it. I learnt a lot from Toolstation and I think it’s a great company with decent benefits but I wouldn’t go back.

Busy and secure.
A decent place to work, high turnover of staff which is probably down to location more than anything. Can be difficult to get to by public transport.

Decent place to work.
Typical day at work was reasonably varied for a hardware store, I enjoyed the typical day, although the first few months were made more challenging than they should of been due to the manager at the time.Easy job, decent folk, not bad all round.

Few questions about yourself. Why you want to work for this company & where do you see yourself in 5years. A bit of basic maths questions.
