    I have been working at Ironmongery Direct full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    None! Apart from the disagreements with IT over the use of air con! :)

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ironmongery Direct (Basildon, East of England, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I had one interview with Ironmongery before I got the job which is probably the quickest interview process I have ever had. There were no phone interviews just a single interview with Charlie Carlton - Ecommerce Manager. The interview was a very relaxed and friendly interview.

    There was a little skills test which wasn't really a test, it was rather a check of my abilities to see if everything that I have claimed I can do is true. So if you can do what you say you can do you should be fine.
