Does Screwfix offer a weekly bonus?

Pros

Good Pay and bonuses if your perform well at ASM / BM level. Good culture and moral Fair level of payroll to actually run your store properly which I've had missing in previous companies. Easy to do, lots to learn and can be physically demanding.

Cons

If you want to progress past a BM role even with support from your Area Manager is tough. It's about who you know and not you suitability and skill set. Technology is far behind other companies and needs updating.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing - Appreciate BMs for the work throughout covid, you rewarded everyone else but basically said BMs didn't work hard or arent worth it when we had to hold everything together and keep our teams engaged and on track through the toughest time I. Ever experienced in retail. Make recruitment for Field based and HO roles fair not just the person you have in mind.

Good Pay and bonuses if your perform well at ASM / BM level.

What are other benefits and incentives like at Screwfix?

Pros

Flexible working hours if agreed by your Manager.Nice restaurant. Friendly staff.

Cons

Pay is very poor and not fair to the role. HR are not approachable and always on the senior managers side. Development depends purely on your senior manager. If you apply for an internal role, then you are given a percentage of the advertised role salary.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees, why do people leave. Surveys, staff to scared to be honest as senior management manage people out of the business.

Pay is very poor and not fair to the role.

Does Screwfix offer a yearly bonus?

Pros

Contracted hours are great at 37.5, on an early you can be home by 3.

Cons

Company used to be a big believer in work/life balance, I used to equally share the ‘bad’ shifts amongst myself and the management team, we all had one late a week, and we took turns doing weekends resulting in working 1 in 3. Now I have to work every other, as well as 6am starts and 8pm finishes multiple times during the week, messing your body clock up and resulting in feeling absolutely drained. I understand this is not bad in comparison to other companies, but if we are going to be like other companies then we will lose our work/life balance, one of the greatest things about screwfix. Promotions, there is no set path for a store manager to be promoted, no training plan, no targets to aim for, just have to keep going and keep asking. If you want progression past store manager this is not the company for you. Final thing company bonus, last year screwfix changed the bonus structure, so whilst screwfix as a business thrived, kingfisher did not, meaning that screwfix managers bonus was nowhere near what it has been, even though we delivered just as much and worked as hard, of course kingfisher still gave out bonus to their managers, even though their results were shocking.

Advice to Management

Let managers manage their shops, deal with managers that aren’t being fair, rather persecuting everyone. Bring back the old bonus structure, measure us on our success’ or failures. Develop a progression training plan for store managers
