Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Screwfix full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great working environment, staff and management are supportive

Cons

Long work weeks Customers are the worst

Current Employee - Retail Sales Assistant

I have been working at Toolstation part-time for more than a year

Pros

great environment, great products to sell, and just a good business

Cons

the odd customer who isnt the best to serve

Advice to Management

make sure everyone is treated fairly becuase as managers or assistant managers they take advantage of the new people by making them do everything when they just stand there which isnt fair.
