    I have been working at Mountain Warehouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment, surrounded by very hard working people that all have one drive.
    Job progression given when you put the time and effort in.
    Head Office location is very central so easy to get to certain stores.
    HR training incentives which help to assist you in working with and understanding others, managing your time efficiently and managing new members of staff.

    Cons

    Management often change their minds on key issues, meaning that workloads can double or triple – there is often no communication as to why this has happened, or any assistance in helping their teams to achieve these changes.
    Overworked would be a key con- they say working in Retail can be fast paced but working at Mountain Warehouse feels like face paced on steroids.
    Un-payed overtime, not flexibility in work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Value your experts and staff with invaluable knowledge. They helped build the business to where it is now, and some of them have been here longer than you and have seen it all.

    Assistant Merchandise Planner Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mountain Warehouse (London, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    2 on 1 face to face talking through my CV, past work experience & general skills related to the role. Also, presented a SWOT I was asked by the recruiter to prepare (although this felt like an after-thought once the interview questions were reaching an end)
