    I have been working at Bunnings Warehouse full-time

    Pros

    You work with some really great people on the floor. Bunnings is genuinely very active with the community. Full adult rates at 18+. Discount is good if you actually buy anything at bunnings.

    Cons

    Managers care more about making budget, rather than their 'team' members or customers. Its hard to work as a team when you are so short staffed and the work load keeps getting piled on. No matter how hard you work, you never get a thankyou, a helping hand or any benefits. No matter how badly youre getting abused by a customer, management never back you up. Seems like all the management have no experience running a...

    I worked at Bunnings Warehouse for more than a year

    Pros

    I met some amazing people who are still friends, I learnt alot of new skills and loved the team enviroment, xmas pressies were always great

    Cons

    the management often play favorites with team members, when you transfer between stores itcan be like your a brand new team member as your skills and abilities are ignored

    Advice to Management

    realise when you have highly skilled team members that they are the ones you want to keep, not the team memebers who suck up

    I worked at Bunnings Warehouse full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good discount up to 20% and share offer. You will learn lots from ex tradies and other team members as well.

    Cons

    LONG hours for Managers. Usually expected to work 55-60 hours per week, despite only being paid for 40. I remember a colleague being chatted by the Ops Manager for not putting in enough hours when she was 27 weeks PREGNANT! She was putting in about 48 hours per week. An absolute disgrace really. The Team Member roles aren't bad but Managers have to put up with copious amounts of politics and pressure. You couldn't...

    Advice to Management

    Start having your Managers sign in and out to see how many hours they're really working. Then start asking the 5 whys and provide support to fix the issues before Fair Work Australia catches up with you. Fair work are unhappy with other businesses having 50 hour contracts with lieu hours for any hours above contact. Imagine how unhappy they would be with the 15-20 unpaid hours per week culture in Bunnings..

    Once you move up the career ladder it becomes less about where you would like to work and more about where senior management want you to work.

    Elderly team are facing a harder battle with more and more expectation for what needs to be completed in a shift.
