    People centric, welcoming and successful.

    I am one of the management team and I genuinely enjoy my job and in particular the people I meet every day of the week who make the business what it is.

    I have been working at Lookers full-time

    Pros

    Great resourcing team, very friendly, quick to check things and get back to you. I was very happy with the whole experience.

    The interview was informative and relaxed, we even had quite a lot of fun!

    Only started recently, so too early to comment heavily but I've never been welcomed so well by colleagues - calls, e-mails, visits. Lots of fun and happy days so far

    Cons

    Not really in terms of onboarding. Too early to comment on other aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Field based staff could have a better structured induction program

    I have been working at Lookers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lookers is a great company to work for as it offer many reasons for you too enjoy your work whether it's bonus's, benefits or even the satisfaction you get from your customers joy from their service.

    Cons

    I would say the only con I've found with lookers personally was how long the initial application process takes as if took at least over a month or two to even hear back as in all honesty I had forgotten that I had applied when I received the call for an interview

    Advice to Management

    Speed up this process as it can lead somepeople like myself to forget and even potentially have gotten another job else when that candidate could have been the best for that position

    I have been working at Lookers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The most professional and well structured company I have worked for. From the initial recruitment stages until now I have never looked back. Wonderful positive team atmosphere, room to progress and fantastic employee benefits. My direct line manager and her superior are absolutely fantastic and they offer the best possible support to myself and the team. I feel part of a bigger picture as cheesey as it sounds its just one big "lookers family". Everyone works collaboritively together to ensure that overarching aim of ensuring the best possible experience for the candidate.

    Cons

    None - other than not finding this company quicker!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing it's working. Also much praise towards the new system they both introduced - proving to be a serious success saving time, money and increasing the volume of talent.
