Mission: We want for everyone to know who we are, trusted for our difference, and to love us for it!
I have been working at AO full-time (More than a year)
Great company to work for, great people, management, and great work ethos.
Plenty of scope for progression.
Since my time here, I have seen colleagues move into different areas of the business, Marketing, HR, Training, Senior Team Members, and Managers. The pathway for those that wish to progress with help and guidance are second to none.
Vibrant company, free beverages, breakfast, car park, chocolates, and so on. Gym membership, prices less than a glass of wine or a pint of beer. Share save scheme, cycle to work and much more. Lots of perks.
We get busy at times, not bad at all, good to be busy, I call it security in the job and the business going in the right direction, AO is growing, growing fast.
Targets set are achievable, good to get that bit extra in the wage packet each month.
New employees who apply for the role Customer Service Advisor go through the Academy with full training. Looked after, allowed to develop and grow.
We have an excellent Training and Development team providing regular training sessions.
What is good is we have a voice, and it is heard, so any issues that you may have you can always speak to your Manager who will always have a listening ear. And also the Task Force, our Task Force, our voice. The Task Force also help greatly with the fun element and organising events. Good social events and lots to do.
C.E.O well, like our founder of AO, you will be pleasantly surprised in finding a person who cares about all staff and the business. Someone who takes time to talk to everyone in the business usually on a monthly basis.
Overall, working at AO is a great place to be.

Those that don't , well there name is not on the list..
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AO (Bolton, England) in February 2014.
2 stages; 1- technical test, 2 - interview
I applied for a Software Engineer position and they conducted a technical test (code kata) followed by some technical questions. Then the 2nd stage was a face to face interview.
