"Great job, low salary."

Current Employee - Supervisor in United States
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Screwfix full-time for more than a year


Great atmosphere within stores. Never a dull moment. Good opportunity to progress and meet new people.


Salary for low level management is quite poor compared to competitors. Bonus doesnt filter all the way down therefore lack of motivation to meet certain KPI's.

Advice to Management

Improve salaries aswell as making bonuses available for all management.

    Very simple. They ask a mix of skills, experience and scenario based questions. Fairly informal process from my experience. Definitely recommend applying for this role even with no previous experience in the industry.
