    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.

    Pros

    Bonus every year
    You make good friendships with the team.

    Cons

    They set values for the store but management can’t even follow them! But expect the team too.
    They have no integrity as a company ! Management only look after themselves. It’s all about budget! They say they are like a FAMILY ! Thats a joke! Bunnings is a toxic place! Management treat the team poorly Everything gets brushed under the carpet unless there arms are forced! Everyone is to scared to speak up because everyone knows they will get bullied by management! They all put a big performance on infront of the area mangers and act like the store vibe is great! When everyone is miserable! Always cutting budgets leaving the team stressed out running around doing 100 of jobs at once and serving customers at once. They say it’s a flexible company with hours when it’s NOT. bank of hour system is a joke too. Always in there favour. If your not up managements behind your no one! It’s about money..they don’t look after teams we’ll being! HOT days are ridiculous In a TIN shed. Cold days we got told of for having a little heater under the desk in 2C days while mangers sit up stairs in the heating and in the air con in the hot days.Have to go to the union to get things done. But then the aftermath is a nightmare for doing what is right by you and they make you feel like the bad one when they are the ones in the wrong all the time! Double standards are 24/7

    Bunnings = toxic
    Do not apply!

    Advice to Management

    Lead by the values that the management set out!
    Happy team happy customers
    Look after the team first! not just your big fat pay checks. Give the team the recognition not the managers !!
