    I worked at Homebase Limited full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company

    Cons

    Ridiculously long hours....I often worked 60 hrs + a week with no extra money or even a thanks. But I was told I was management and it was expected. I then had to add 2 hrs a day travelling. So actually I was probably doing 70 hrs a week. Also often and I do mean often did an late shift into an early so was lucky if I got 3 hrs sleep due to the travelling. They then rebranded my job and employed new people for... 7k less than I was on so they made my life a misery until I was so ill I had a nervous breakdown. So guess what they refused to pay me. I left. Don't bother working for homebase/Bunnings it is horrific

    I have been working at Homebase Limited part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    20% discount Good management Environment was nice place to work but the people could get away with most things as cctv and other things are not always in operation

    Cons

    Bad head office as they never answer phones or give the correct information to both customers and colleagues. Lack funding so never have enough money to employ Rarely have all items in stock

    Advice to Management

    Give your stores enough money to have a decent staff count.
