      Good team, good discount, management are faultless, staff members are lovely and friendly good hours


      One of the cons of working in b and m is the minimum wage for sales associates

        Stock Controller is recent role I was appointed to Great hours, early shifts Monday-Friday, off weekends. Overtime offered when available Paperwork and computer work based, less labour intensive than previous replenishment and floor roles Great team to work with


        Minimum wage while requiring a lot of responsibility to ensure stock adjustments/reports are accurate for audits and stocktakes Difficult for one stock controller to control a stock file as vast as B&M The Torex Nova oracle system for stock orders and adjustment is outdated and often has issues and is a learning curve to navigate Stock issues with distribution centres

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
