    I worked at Argos (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a very good company. They really believe in the core values. Lots of opportunity for over time, and there was always work to be done.

    Cons

    Very unorganized with no processes in place. Upper management was clueless to the daily processes.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same and with respect. Some employees have really good ideas.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argos (Stockton, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the networx recruitment site. I got a call about a week later inviting me to an interview the following week. The interview only took about 25 minutes and it was really informal which put me at ease. I was interviewed by the manager and stock manager. They asked several questions, some scenario based questions, told me about the role and then asked if I had any questions.

    Roxy · Home Retail Group Careers

    I joined Home Retail Group through the Graduate Finance Scheme three years ago. I'd been looking for a finance-based scheme outside of the London area, so when I came across Home Retail Group's Graduate Finance Scheme based in Milton Keynes, it seemed ideal.
