I have been working at Ironmongery Direct full-time (More than a year)
IronmongeryDirect is a great place to work for many reasons!
Everyone is so approachable; no matter how their day is going - everyone always says hello. Even if colleagues have a heavy workload themselves, they will do their best to help you out with whatever query / request you have for them.
They offer great staff benefits, ranging from the opportunity to expand on your holiday days within a year to discounts on merchandise to bacon sandwich record weeks, and so much more.
There are a number of social events to go to throughout the year - Summer BBQ, Christmas Party and our very own awards ceremony... the WOWScars!! As well as smaller internal events for charities.
With the recent site expansion, the offices and warehouse are a lot more spacious and colourful which is great. It has also provided staff with a new canteen / games room and a big enough car park that you do not have to worry about blocking someone in anymore!
I would recommend anyone to apply to any position available at IronmongeryDirect. You have opportunities to progress, not only within your own department, but other departments within the business.
None! Apart from the disagreements with IT over the use of air con! :)
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Ironmongery Direct (Basildon, East of England, England) in August 2017.
A very informal, relaxed and interesting interview based, I think, on my 'fit' for the company rather than how I can resolve programming tasks in a fake environment (as in other interviews). Some wonderful random questions ensued with quite a bit of laughter. It was a warm welcome and they were very flexible about my interview start time as it was torrential rain and I was quite delayed.
