    I have been working at Kingfisher full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good company, nice people, good culture. I've been pretty happy there in the 2+ years I've worked there. Good pension as well.

    Cons

    Nothing company specific but more to do with my role. Like most big corporates the hours can get long but generally it is ok.

    International Commercial Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kingfisher in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    - 2 x Interviews with the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, online video interview in French to test your language skills and a one day assessment centre. The assessment center consisted of different parts: an English interview, a French interview, a presentation that was prepared in advance and then a group exercise at the end of the day. Therefore a long process.
