What's the minimum age to work as a Service Assistant?
What's a Service Assistant?

Im 16 so would i be able to work there?
You need to ask Screwfix, phone the Screwfix number ask for the HR department.
....or ask at your local branch!
Apart from a wee typo - 'i instead of 'I' - and a single missing comma and a collon, I have to say our Jak seems a better-than-averagely educated fellow
That's a good start
(Don't worry, Jak - you hopefully won't have to work with a pedantic arris like me... )
Collon is a village in Ireland.
Give the lad credit for F/Sake, I would employ him just for enquiring. This chap will do well in life, starting at the bottom and ending up in the top job.
Good luck to you Jak.
£3.87/hour for under 18's
Really? The store I've applied to says £7.03 per hour for under 18s
This means taking the slip off the customer and processing it. You then ask them if they need any tape measures/ brown plugs/ drill bits/ screws/ nails/ (in fact anything SF sell) whilst your adding up their order on the till. When there's a lull in customers, you'll be expected to fill shelves up and put back the cordless drill on display, someone's been messing about with. Working as part of a team means, as your the newest employee, the others get to boss you about and let you fetch the tea/coffee for them (your the whipping boy till a newer employee gets set on)
Anyway, don't let DA's reply put you off, he's only the head of human resources and spends all his days locked in a darkened office (only coming out once it's dark)
Thanks for your reply! Mine is a new store being opened so I hope that doesn't happen aha
According to the .gov the min wage.
Mostly young people at my branch.
If the wage is correct that's not bad at all, I'm only on £7.52/h and over 25
I think staff get 20% off orders as well, that's what my friend said who works there.
Maybe SF Peter can put in a word, wheres' he disappeared to? on holiday?
Knew I was in the wrong job.
Not quite ... the under 18 staff are restricted on what they can handle too - knives, chisels and solvents are restricted and they will be supervised for those items.
They do employ 16 year olds and I know that they do also offer part time contracts that will allow someone to go to college to continue their education and then work maybe 4 half days and one at the weekend.
Did school work experience at Homebase, weren't any SF outlets then.
Are you sure it's not upto £7.03/h. Toolstation pay upto £7.20/h, staff there have to pick their own orders.
Yes I'm sure. All it says is its 7.03h for juniors. Doesn't say upto.
Separate names with a comma.
