I have been working at Shop Direct full-time (More than a year)
Allows me the freedom to be creative, express myself, and add value on a daily basis. They are moving to a more agile way of working and this brings opportunities and openings. The values are very strong in Shop Direct and not just on a wall for show, we really do live and breathe them
Some old ways of working, but at least they recognise this and are trying to move to new ways of working
Advice to Management
become coaches rather than managers
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Liverpool, England (UK)) in March 2017.
Assessment day- Consisted of a few of the current colleagues giving talks about various roles within the company, followed by talks about the company background, history, ethos, values etc
This is then followed by a group task, which consisted of a scenario or question that is then discussed and everyone gets involved and then findings are discussed and put together and presented back to everyone, which isn't as daunting as it sounds.
This is then followed by tours of the office buildings and the spaces, between one on one interviews with staff from the selected role you have applied for, you should by this stage know who will be interviewing you, as everyone is in the cube with you throughout the day and there is ample time to go around and network and ask plenty of questions.
