    Pros

    It was a very excellent work experience. The people there were very nice to work with. The management i felt, cared for no only their customers but there employees as well.

    Cons

    Some customers were not very friendly which made my job more difficult to perform. Working on commission could be very trying.

    Advice to Management

    The furniture needs and should be better quality. Make salesmen salary more competitive so that they are more motivated and worker turnover is decreased.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wickes (Sheffield, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online then got a phone call a few weeks later inviting me to an interview. It was a very informal interview with the Manager who just asked me a few questions about myself. It was more of an informal chat than an interview really.
