    I applied online. I interviewed at B&Q (Ireland)

    Interview

    - I applied online and was initially given an online questionaire to complete. This consisted of basic customer service questions.
    -Next I was contacted and had to give a brief phone interview
    -Finally I was asked to come in for a group and individual interview. Overall it was quite a straightforward interview. No trick questions.

April is Stress Awareness Month. In the past year, it’s been more important than ever to look after ourselves and our wellbeing. This means identifying what’s causing us stress and learning how to manage it. At B&Q, we work with the Retail Trust so that every colleague can access personalised wellbeing resources - whether that’s financial or emotional support or career development advice. Our colleagues also support each other every day and we couldn’t be prouder of them. Whether it's virtual chair yoga, a cuppa and a chat in one of our store’s wellness rooms, or 24/7 support from the Retail Trust, #TogetherWeCan learn to live a happier, less stressful life.
