Mission: To be the Best Electrical Retailer in Europe!
I worked at AO full-time (Less than a year)
Great culture, brilliant location, excellent perks. They only employ proven, money hungry sales people so that made my job (to train them) much more enjoyable than previous roles. My manager was sound.
Personally I enjoyed everything about it. I did develop a habit of eating very unhealthily, but I enjoyed that too.
Advice to Management
Keep recruiting people who fit the culture and ensure you always pay all staff what they deserve (not just the sales guys).
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AO (Bolton, England) in October 2017.
Originally I applied for the Supply Chain Coordinator role where I uploaded my CV to the company website, had a telephone interview then an assessment centre. I was not successful for that position but ao.com kept my details and put me forward for the Merchandiser role. As they had seen me before and had my CV on file, I had to come in for an interview to meet the manager of this position and get some more details about the role. Everyone I met from the recruitment team and supply chain team were really friendly and approachable. I have never felt so comfortable in an interview situation before.
