    I have been working at Bunnings Warehouse part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They hire well. Culture is positive.
    Training happens monthly on different topics and departments so you always feel like you're improving.
    Uniform - they give you shirts, and you just need dark jeans/work pants and closed in shoes/steelcaps. Can be reimbursed.
    Free lunches nearly twice a month for birthdays and events.
    Provide ice blocks and water during the summer months.
    Emphasis on being proactive in whatever roll you're in.
    Great as a first time job -especially if you're out of school.

    Cons

    Summer time, working in a shed with no air con. You have to suck it up and get on with it.
    Lots of customers are trying to do things cheap and so if they ignore warranty conditions (e.g must be installed by plumber/electrician or void warranty) you can be on the receiving end of disgruntled customer through no fault of your own.
    Working in cafe can be very hectic and not enough help is rosters *sometimes* when you need it most.
