    I have been working at Wilko part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Management, Fun work environment, Flexible hours, Good and fast money, opportunity to learn and hone sales skills

    Cons

    Sometimes the management can be a little too overbearing. Must keep in mind that they only want the best for you, even if sometimes they can Micro Manage.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wilko (Carlisle, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through a university student fair, heard back within a week an was invited to a group interview. The interview involved an icebreaker - introducing yourself with 2 truths and 1 lie, the group had to decide which fact was the lie.Then we were given different activities in the group e.g.a puzzle, quiz sheet with riddles. This was to see how you interacted with other people in a team setting. The interview stage took roughly an hour and the mangers were friendly/welcoming.
    Got a phone call saying i got the job about a week later.

    Negotiation

    no negotiation had a normal rate of pay.
