    I have been working at Carpetright full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will recieve acknowledgment of your application, detailed interview confirmation outlining who you are meeting, where you are going and what to bring along with you.
    A recruitment contact who will give you feedback following interview and be pro-active in finding you the most suitable role within in the business.

    Cons

    Some stores do require moving to the 21st century, making sure the staff have the best possible resource to keep the business moving forward successfully.

    Advice to Management

    Set the highest example, motivate and communicate - make sure everyone is working towards the same goal.

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

    Pros

    Good colleagues, excellent work/life balance and friendly customers. Also had the opportunity to work closely with customers for carpet fitting etc. Hope this helps.

    Cons

    I don't have any specific cons to share. Maybe, better commissions will help motivate staff even more motivated. Very occasionally, some customers can be a bit hard to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
