Mission: To be the Best Electrical Retailer in Europe!
I have been working at AO full-time (More than 3 years)
I thoroughly enjoy working at AO and I am very proud to be part of such an inspiring and forward thinking business.
The company is very fast paced (sometimes a little hectic!) but it is a happy and engaging environment to work in.
For me, the biggest Pro to working at AO is the people. The company recruits based on their company values, therefore the people of the business are very like-minded, passionate people who are all driven to achieve the same goal.
The company prides itself on growing talent from within and I have personally experienced this first hand receiving lots of support and development opportunities over the years that I have worked here.
I absolutely never dread coming to work, and I actually love Mondays!
A lot of the additional benefits to working at AO, i.e. free food , chocolate, subsidised gym etc are now very standard across the market so they could do with a benefits refresh.
Very fast paced and demanding business - which I don't see as a bad thing, but anyone wanting to work here needs to be up for the challenge!
Advice to Management
Continue to be open and honest.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AO.
Applied online. Had a telephone interview with HR with very generic corporate questions. No follow-up from team on if I were successful or not. Interviewer was friendly though.

Of course AO has the North West's coolest office!
