    I have been working at Thorntons (UK) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some colleagues are good and will help, nice to try different chocolates, if you get the right regional there can be development

    Cons

    Not enough hours to complete what's needed, no follow through of ideas they start one thing then stop. Higher management don't share enough and no on in head office answers the phone

    Advice to Management

    If the stores don't exist neither will you so get to know the people in the stores

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Thorntons (UK).

    Interview

    Really nice group interview process, employees were friendly and encouraging. They gave us some group tasks to do for example 2 truths 1 lie. I was called a few days later to confirm that I had the job and started a week after. All in all a positive experience.
