    Pros

    Busy working environment and not for the faint hearted
    Enjoy the buzz and Christmas is soooo busy and flies
    the people you work with are so varied and no day is the same

    Cons

    Constant drive about numbers it's a numbers business so being numbers orientated is key
    Job can be stressful so a small drive home is always a good idea

    Advice to Management

    Hmm ditch sq and drive margin is the only thing I'd change tbh

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dixons Retail (Manchester, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Formal but relaxed one-to-one. Clarity on the job role explained and you're asked what you're looking to achieve. Given an explanation of the career ladder if you ask. Training schemes are in places for free to all employees to aid in boosting their wage. I was able to state that the job was not my intended future 5 years down the line and they accepted that and still offered me a position.
