I worked at Halfords (More than 3 years)
Good training and skills learnt, not bad pay, company always paid on time. Fun to work there, good discounts too.
Understaffed, bad communication through management , too many middle managers who dont do much.
Advice to Management
Make it more appealing to move up within the company,
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.
