Screwfix Retail Assistant


Starting as a mail catalogue business, we’ve always been determined to grow. Opening over 60 stores a year for almost a decade now, we’re the UK’s largest supplier of tools, accessories and hardware products. Thanks to our huge network of Trade Counters, the UK’s builders, plumbers and electricians are never more than 20 minutes from the part they need, on any job. 

With an expansion strategy as good as ours, there’s no smarter move than choosing a career with Screwfix – the potential to progress is incredible. 

Thanks to our rapid growth, working at Screwfix is much more exciting than at other retailers. Our ongoing expansion has allowed us to create new roles, giving our colleagues greater exposure and responsibility so that with the right attitude, you’ll have the means to get ahead. The harder we work, the faster we grow, and the more people can progress. We’re firm believers in promoting from within and the rewards speak for themselves.

However, it’s not all hard work and no play! Whether you’re based in our Head Office or Contact Centre in Yeovil, or a Trade Country across the country, we’ll make sure that you feel part of the Screwfix family. It’s even easier to perform at your best when you’re buzzing off the kind of atmosphere we generate!

Well over 90% of our people recommend working for Screwfix! Our philosophy is to provide employees with a balanced and competitive reward package and as we’re part of the Kingfisher group we can offer an award-winning company pension scheme along with a host of other benefits and rewards.

When it comes to engaging our people, it’s fair to say we’re leading the way within the Kingfisher Group. Alongside our competitive reward package, we offer fantastic training opportunities allowing our colleagues to grow and progress. We’re firm believers in investing in our in-house talent - over 50% of our retail management teams are promoted from within and even some of our Board members are internal promotions.

At Screwfix great people really can have a great career with great benefits.

    I have been working at Screwfix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In this business you can progress from part time service assistant all the way up to an area manager. There are so many opportunities to learn and grow, along with registered qualifications. It is down to you for how far you want to go. There is a massive development support network to help you all the way with so many new stores opening the expansion is massive.

    Cons

    Change.... this is a word to get used too, but not in a bad way. As we expand and develop we are always looking at new ways of working. Keeping it simple.

    Advice to Management

    This is a role with great family values and a great work life balance. The business really cars about you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Screwfix in November 2016.

    Interview

    The whole interview process was very positive and the Company was in touch and guidance throughout the whole time. After initial phone call, I have arranged a phone interview and moved on to 1:1 interview. All materials and task for this stage have been provided by the Company's recruitment department. After successfully passing the 1:1 stage, I was invited to meet with one of the directors, for a casual meeting, after which I got a job offer.
