Does Screwfix offer relocation assistance?

Pros

When you DO have a team good atmosphere

Cons

Yearly GLINT survey is IGNORED about improving benefits, conditions and systems. Labour budgets cut back to detrimental financial performance and team morale. Sickness levels rocketing due to team being overworked. Store manager's having to work open to close to maintain trading hours due to sickness. Company unable to recruit candidates - reduced labour hours equals small contracts. Yet managers beaten over attrition Despite being part of Kingfisher, very poor benefits package. Sales target failed to reflect current economic and political climate. Thus meaning overperforming management team failing to achieve a bonus. Something which makes the job well paid or not. Numerous minimum wage pay rises mean now sometimes as little as a £1 difference between SA and supervisor role. Trade Up development programme has offended experienced candidates and they have left. From Supervisor to Branch Manager roles. Tired same old same old promotions. Sometimes just "Great Value" not even a promotion .
