    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Like family, relationships built with great customers and staff

    Cons

    Can be hard work with challenging customer needs and it can be long hours

    Advice to Management

    Look after the lads on the front line, the pay needs to be slightly higher to be competitive. Lads leave purely for more money not because they don’t like the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wolseley UK (Dundee, Scotland) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Usual competency based phone interview. I was successful in getting through to the next stage, however I was called and told "there's been internal interest for this role, we will update you next week" - still waiting on an update after chasing this up (2 weeks after call).
