    I worked at B&Q part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's simple to apply, it treats even low level employees with quite a bit of respect. I was able to learn anything i wanted to about the store our systems and sales skills in general, working there for just a few mouth's opened TONS of doors for me to do other things.

    Cons

    Pay was pretty poor, don't let it become who you are. My personal manger was very hands off I felt he wasn't very productive in general and was much more worried about his future then the stores.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at B&Q (Newport, Newport, Wales (UK)).

    Interview

    a quick 5 minute chat in a room, with a manager. Just looked at my cv and did a mock sale. Was very simple and then they discuss your salary and what you expect. Make sure you negotiate as this will be set in stone for ever.
