There is a very good reason that there are always loads of jobs for Screwfix on here.

Service assistants / supervisors / assistant manager / branch manager.
Everyone is supposed to muck in and do the job but there is so much paperwork for the managers they tend to only help when absolutely necessary. Quite often management will outnumber the service assistants which can make it difficult to get stuff done.

20% at Screwfix and B&Q. There are very strict guidelines about the fact that only you can use it. For family and friends you are supposed to 'gift' items (although how this is enforceable is beyond me).
Some special offers are not applicable- you can have the special offer or staff discount, not both.

Store dependant- you will hear 'needs of the company' a lot with regards to your rota's. Basically this means "you will work when we tell you to". Despite the claim they can be very inflexible at times.

Either 2 6 hour shifts or 3 4 hour shifts, the shift pattens are over 7 days per week between the hours of 7am till 9pm depending on store opening times

No CRB or Dbs required as that would cost money and full history of life going back 10 years. References were not checked for any of my colleagues they take your word it.

They asked me if I can make a decent round of toast

Answered 11 July 2018

Highly unlikely. You work within your store opening times as needed by the company. Rota's are subject to endless, last minute changes and you are expected to keep on top of your own working hours. You will rarely be asked if changes work with your life outside of work, you ar ejust expected to do them.
