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

    Pros

    Only been with company 10 days , but store teams in Stockton and Guisbrough have been great . Welcoming and happy to explain the processes in detail. I have a lot to learn but if my first couple of weeks are anything to bench Mark against I am looking forward to building a successful career😊. Great work / life balance which is important to me and my family. staff discount from screwfix and B&Q .Career progression if you want to move onwards an upwards. top 20 best companies to work for.

    Cons

    Getting to grips with the processes which will come with time so not really a con .

    Advice to Management

    At present don't have much other than maybe possible training schedule or something along them lines, but happy to be hands on while learning.

    I have been working at Screwfix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Progression of you want it, good work life balance, less pressure than other retailers. Bonus scheme is fair and allows you to increase your salary through hitting targets which are not unachievable.

    Cons

    Pay needs to be more competitive, some systems that are used are old and out dated and hold the company neck from increasing growth.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in stores and the ground level understanding the issues we have.

    I worked at Screwfix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture with a real can do attitude. Fast paced and full of great people who are passionate for the Brand.

    Cons

    Salaries and benefits can be lower than average although I believe a lot of work is going into reviewing this. The company is going through a lot of change currently with the 'ONE' Kingfisher agenda. This has brought a number of great opportunities however is changing the business as we know it.
