    I worked at Thorntons (UK) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fab management, very friendly and welcoming. Offer full training to help you understand how the shop works and what is expected of you. The interview was very laid back felt like more of a chat than an interview, great staff, good discount and paid well.

    Cons

    No positions available to be kept on after Christmas period

    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.
