    I worked at Wolseley UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wolseley is a fantastic place to work, as part of the eBusiness team I've been provided challenging and interesting work. The company works hard to develop the skills of their workforce and reward their efforts fairly. Fantastic managers and support available to you if needed.

    Cons

    The canteen is really poor.

    Advice to Management

    The website needs more funding to tip it from good to great.

    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).
