I have been working at Halfords full-time (More than 5 years)
Every day is genuinely different,
Progression is achievable,
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
I applied online. I interviewed at Halfords in July 2017.
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.
