Approves of CEO


Great people, from the CEO down. A motivated workforce who are completely focused on the customer and their experience. Opportunities to develop and advance within the company.


The headquarters in Leicester can be difficult to commute to, due to its location and poor transport links.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cromwell Tools (Birmingham, England) in Aug 2021


    First of all there is a group teams meeting with members of staff telling us about the company and the role and potential candidates. They then give you a chance to ask questions at the end if you wish. Then there is an individual competency based interview with an interview panel of 2 which lasts about 30 minutes.
