    I have been working at Halfords full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every day is genuinely different,
    Progression is achievable,
    Peer relationships,
    Team development,

    Cons

    Lack inspiration at times
    Slow to react to feedback at upper levels
    Out of reach executive team

    Advice to Management

    Genuinely best retailer I have worked for, and I have previously worked for food retail and "big box" retail.
    Induction is poor and feels vague - stick with it and come out the other side and it all starts to fit, 6 months in and you'll feel like family

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Halfords in July 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone call first stage. Good contact from HR person in arranging a time that was suitable for both; very professional and friendly. Process fell down when the interviewer did not call and used HR person as go between - failed to reschedule or determine why interview was missed in the first place.
