    I worked at Blue Arrow part-time (More than a year)


    - Flexible work: 0 hour contract, not pressure to work. - Large Variety of work opportunities within the Catering industry. - Easy sign-up, only one or two test to take before you can start working. - Nice feeling of community amongst fellow employees. - Regular work opportunities arise e.g. being posted to a client site for one week. - Friendly, polite and respectful managers. - Paid over 21's minimum wage despite being under 18.


    - Wouldn't get fully compensated for fuel costs of going to client sites. - Automatically deduct tax form your salary, even if you're working part time and are unlikely to be earning over the tax threshold.

    Advice to Management

    - Some performance-related bonuses would be nice. - Should really fully compensate staff for travel.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Blue Arrow (Bury, North West England, England (UK)) in October 2014.


    Via job centre - forwarded me a customer service role organised by blue arrow agency for John Lewis 3 months contract. I was invited to the agency, filled a load of registration forms, the interviewer asked me 3 questions. 1) what do you know about the role 2) what customer service experience do you have? 3) what computer skills do you have? Got a call back from the agency 5 days later, offered the job, started the following week,


    No negotiation.
