A fantastic place to work, but expect to work hard!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsWickes really is a fantastic place to work as the people are great and the business has a brilliant culture – we do the right things for the right reasons, and we are really passionate about it. I feel I have been supported to build a career and I enjoy making a difference every day. I feel lucky to be working somewhere where its easy to say “I love my job”. Not many people can say that

ConsPeople are generally very proud to work for Wickes and because of that they are willing to put in a bit extra. No one makes you do it - you do it because you care about the business and want to do a good job. The downside is it can be long hours and I can't remember the last time that I wasn't incredibly busy!

Advice to Senior ManagementThe great thing about Wickes is the culture. You are treated as an adult and the leadership team go out of their way to make sure everyone has a voice. There's no ego - all of the Directors wear red polo shirts just like the guys in stores and they are as interested in the opinion of a part-time customer service advisor as they are a senior manager. Keep it up - it's what makes it a great place to work.

    I worked at Wickes


    Pros: The work is relatively easy, as far as retail jobs go, and it is a job that you can forget once… Cons: Certain managers being so demeaning and patronising that many staff felt that they wanted to leave. High expectations of worker knowledge of products, even whilst… Advice to Senior Management: Be less patronising. Remember how hard the work can be for the staff that work a ten hour shift without sitting down at all. Appreciate… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
