    I worked at GO Outdoors part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent staff discount for all levels and given staff discount card in a few days of starting. No waiting period of months until you’re allowed the staff discount which some other companies practice.

    Great working environment.

    The people you work with are mostly friendly and very helpful. You get the feel of a family run business. I think this is because a number of people are related or close friends. I also believe it’s encouraged for employees to share job opportunities to their friends and families. They might do this so the company gets a close knit team working in the store. Only a handful of employees aren’t related or not friends before working in store.

    Cons

    A lot of different jobs to do for minimum wage. Not only do till operators work on the till and tidy around the till area they also manage online orders. They make sure any orders coming through are sorted out on the computer. They contact the departments for the items and sort out the paperwork. Plus answer the phones.

    Short training period, about a week. A ‘buddy’ shadows you.

    Interview

    Complete online application form then had an email asking for me to attend an interview. The interview itself was a group interview with two tasks to complete. The first task was working within a group deciding together on what was most important to do within the store from a list of options. Marking them from most important to not so. The second task was an individual one that was picking an item from the shop floor then basically selling it to the group very much like Dragon’s Den.
