    I worked at Halfords part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great teamwork ethic, enjoyable work. Good opening hours over weekend and discount scheme. Cycle to work scheme very good and opportunity to progress.

    Cons

    Low pay considering what is expected of you. High work load at holiday seasons so therefore long hours. Often unappreciated by management, do not partake in any refit of stores. Long hours and very unappreciated.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Halfords (Redditch, England (UK)).

    Interview

    1 hour of interview with 2 quality managers. Questions where about my technical profile, my abilities in problem solving and about my possible future in the company. Some question about them products' quality.
    The technical questions were about my ability to find the root cause analysis and the ability in investigation. Also about the skills to solve an issue far from press shop.
