    I have been working at Wiggle part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for Wiggle for 2 years and I can honestly say they are the best company that I have ever worked for. Wiggle has some of the most talented teams of people, who are all passionate about their work and the brand. I have worked closely with all of the senior management team throughout my time and they are all committed to their teams, their teams development and staff welfare. The facilities for employees at Wiggle are fabulous with state of the art offices, free tea and coffee, casual dress policy and flexible working and an amazing staff discount. I love the Friday ride outs and extra fitness activities that Wiggle put on for their staff. You don't have to get involved but since working here, I have and I have really enjoyed getting fitter. There are great opportunities for staff development with many of my colleagues having the opportunity to progress. Each week there are internal opportunities so if you are after progression, Wiggle is a great place.

    Cons

    I cant think of any!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The HR team are really supportive and have helped me when I needed flexibility due to illness in my family.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wolverhampton, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wiggle (Wolverhampton, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Very long process for a Warehouse Asociate role. 3 Interviews in total, an easy test and an assessment. Started with a phone interview (passed), a face to face interview + easy 3rd grader test (passed), an assessment (passed) and another face 2 face interview (failed). You would expect a person with experience in roles starting from warehouse operative, lead, instructor, with an university degree would get a warehouse asociate job (can't go any lower), but was rejected because I don't have the "Wiggle character". That is the only feedback I got. Was congratulated for my experience and knowledge, but not a Wiggle... People that can barely count get jobs like that. Shocked... honestly!
