    I worked at Shop Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great comms to head office in form of balcony briefing, lots of opportunities to get involved with different parts of business on projects etc.

    Cons

    Some back end systems are incredibly archaic

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good comms, invest in systems !

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Shop Direct (Oldham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview involves a basic competency tests which tests whether or not you can read the signposts and numbers and read things off the wall it is very east i got 100%. Then they sit you down and ask you some basic questions about yourself and then they phone you later that day and tell you whether or not you got the job.
