Mission: Helping people create homes to be proud of.
I worked at B&Q part-time (Less than a year)
It's simple to apply, it treats even low level employees with quite a bit of respect. I was able to learn anything i wanted to about the store our systems and sales skills in general, working there for just a few mouth's opened TONS of doors for me to do other things.
Pay was pretty poor, don't let it become who you are. My personal manger was very hands off I felt he wasn't very productive in general and was much more worried about his future then the stores.
I applied online. I interviewed at B&Q (Sheffield, England (UK)) in September 2017.
Had a brief phone interview, followed by a group assessment in shop. The latter involved everyone introducing themselves, a team building exercise (a tower out of straws, paper and sellotape), speaking to customers under supervision and then practicing product selling with the group. The hardest out of these was the product selling as I was nervous and didn't know much about the item. Approaching customers on the shop floor was quite daunting but not as bad as I thought it would be. The successful people went on to have one-on-two interviews.
