Fantastic place to work if you are willing to stick your neck out and try something new!

Senior Operations Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Carphone Warehouse

ProsThe people! All levels of management are open to new ideas, it is a very flat structure.

ConsCan be a little unfocused. I feel that people jump a little too quickly to what Charles says.
Long hours. 40 hour week is the contracted hours and often it is much longer.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your Operational capabilities. It is quite poor. We are always chasing the next good idea (essential of course), but always at the complete expense of how we are currently dealing with the issues we already have.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Fun but Ripping Off Customers!!

Sales Assistant (Former Employee)
Leeds, England (UK)

I worked at Carphone Warehouse full-time for more than a year


Pros: The branch I worked in was pretty chilled out and fun… Cons: The Assistant Manager and Manager were both dodgy, as long as we got them sales they loved us even if it meant ripping off customers… Advice to Senior Management: Work on your customer service skills, stop pushing your staff… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
