Mission: To be the Best Electrical Retailer in Europe!
I worked at AO full-time
Great bunch of people, excellent training, fun nights out, supportive managers, lovely office, always something going on. Starbucks, cafe, free breakfast, drinks, crisps, chocolate. Amazing money to be earned, always fair and feel valued.
Some people need to work extra hours to achieve what they want to earn, this causes some people to become negative, they then attempt to push that negativity and it clouds what is actually an amazing place to work.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you’re doing. Seeing people who’ve done the role and understand the job progress, really drives others.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at AO (Manchester, England) in June 2018.
I was greeted in receiption, and shown around on the way to a meeting room on the 6th floor, where we were joined by another staff member of AO. Both were friendly, and polite throughout. Firstly we talked a little about AO, and the role I was applying for. Then we went into depth about my work history, and about me as an individual. Likes, dislikes, passions and pass-times. We then had a quick session of pair programming a code-kata (Potter books) which allowed me to share a lot of insights into my thought patterns and reasonings. Lastly we have a questions and answers session from both my point of view, and that of AO's. I was thanked for attending, and was told of the next steps, and that I would be contacted by my agent in the next day or so.
