    I have been working at Screwfix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job security, good pension, staff discount, the people you work wuth

    Cons

    It does depend on what store you work in Branch managers and area managers differ massively. Unfair rotas, lack of staff, expected targets high, high staff turn over, lack of care from higher management, used to be a really nice place to work however over the last 18 months its just a money making machine at any cost staff are now just a number kingfisher are strangling the life out of it.
