    J'ai travaillé chez Screwfix (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Inclusive, supportive and friendly working environment. I worked in the 40+ strong marketing team and despite there being over 500 employees at head office there really was a strong team mentality and shared goals to ensure the customer is put at the heart of decision making. Excellent in house training and events.

    Inconvénients

    Progression is difficult with limited opportunities. Better to leave the business and come back in at a higher level.

    Je travaille chez Screwfix à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    Great customers
    BM's who support each other and generally great Area Managers
    Not a high pressure environment but that's changing
    From Sa to Bm great opportunity but then you'll need to leave

    Inconvénients

    Directors that don't see below their level ( Blind to store level issues )
    Kingfisher now control Screwfix,
    Hours cut more and more
    No training or progression for BM's it's very much a boys club, face fits you'll get promoted

    Conseils à la direction

    I know many BM's are looking to move on so maybe open your ears and eyes and see what's happening, offer development training courses for BM's so we can improve our skills, we are important and love the business but you're making it difficult now

    Je travaille chez Screwfix à temps partiel (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    First of all my management team and co-workers are an amazing bunch. One of my children presented with a serious medical condition just one week after I started, and they've been nothing other than supportive — not just OK, but genuinely helpful!
    The camaraderie is amazing and the majority of our customers pick up on, and enjoy this happy, jovial atmosphere.
    The benefits and incentives are pretty good for a retail job too — it all goes towards making staff happy, with the end goal of making our customers satisfied!

    Inconvénients

    It's retail, so the hourly wage is low.
    Some people are averse to working at weekends.

    Conseils à la direction

    There are frustrating flaws with our system and website that often cause embarrassment at the tills — fortunately most of our customers are regular so they don't "kick off". These issues are out of the BM's control, yet are the main the cause of bad feedback from customers, which unfairly impinges upon the store.

    If employees take the time to provide detailed and substantiated feedback, you need to act upon that feedback!

    J'ai travaillé chez Screwfix en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    The pay as an SA is above minimum wage and on par with entry level administration work.
    SBS allows staff to get on first name terms with customers and streamline the service.
    Kingfisher, the parent company, holds an annual survey which will monitor the view of staff. This allows the staff to help improve the company.
    Wide range of contracts to suit your needs.
    Communication between sites and the Contact Centre is good.

    Inconvénients

    Each site can vary depending on the management. Some areas expect staff to work 10 hour shifts.
    The wide range of hours expected on management and full time staff can be strenuous on the person and can wreak havoc on your work life balance.

    Conseils à la direction

    Drop PlumbFix and ElectricFix quotas for sites that depend on the same customers to meet sales targets.
    Permit assistant managers to sign off First Steps training as well as BMs, when your manager is doing work to earn an Area Manager position, finding time with them is difficult at best.

    Avantages

    Family feel, work life balance

    Inconvénients

    Promises where made by those at the top, promises which have not been kept.

    Conseils à la direction

    Trust your branch management team with information about the business, otherwise we may as well not be called managers. Complacency is our weakness.

    Je travaille chez Screwfix à plein temps

    Avantages

    Potential to move up the ladder but see cons below.
    Pay is fairly good for retail.
    Trade+ working hours are decent enough.
    20% discount also in b&q

    Inconvénients

    Branch manager changes every year and along with it a new management style.
    Some branch managers are clueless and are only in role due to contacts.
    Progression is not based on ability but on who you know.
    A lot of empty promises.
    Too much expectation in trade+, targets etc.
    Supervisor role is the worst, no bonuses, lots of extra hours, pay is not much different from sales assistant.
    Too much staff on part time contracts, hence do not care about their job. Most staff are students or just waiting till something better comes along

    Conseils à la direction

    Don't swap managers around every year. If it's not broke don't fix it. Excuse the pun.

    If you want to develop a store first of all you need staff who care about their jobs and the only way is to employ more full time staff.
    Stop throwing down pointless rules for the sake of it.
    Improve the supervisor role, both in terms of pay and job satisfaction. As it stands currently most of the decent supervisors will only stick around till something better comes along hence why a lot of internal supervisor-assistant manager promotions end up with useless people being in high ranking positions.

    Love going to work every day. You really feel part of a family and are allowed to take risks and make mistakes in a supportive environment. Definitely the best place I have worked

    Inconvénients

    There aren’t any real down points. The company is great to work for, we just need to keep the same family feel as we grow
