    I have been working at Bunnings Warehouse full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Have worked at Bunnings for many-many years in as a team member, so have a good understanding on how things are run, and expectations set for team members. Stores are normally divided into several different areas (e.g. Front End (registers, service desk, cafe), in the home (electrical, paint, kitchen, flooring, storage, bathroom), builders (hardware, tool shop, timber yard), and leisure (nursery, garden, outdoor furniture). Each area has a supervising manager, and team members are generally allocated to a section (e.g. electrical, or nursery) when they first start at Bunnings. Team members may be rostered in 2 different sections of the same area (e.g. homewares and flooring), though generally are allocated one department as its easier for rostering, accountability, building knowledge, and continuity between shifts. Casuals tend to be placed in one area also, though may be shared between areas based on requirements (and if a manger from another department likes you). Positives: - Give team members a certain amount of responsibilities and freedom to make decisions in their department & work you would probably not get a change to do in other low end retail jobs (e.g. stock on hand reports, manual stock ordering, shelf relaying, some investigative work ect) - Good culture between staff of all ages, with management generally treating staff well and not much power-play, compared to other retailers. - Occasional free lunches (e.g. pizza, burgers, bbq) given to staff (generally more unhealthy food). - Team/Staff discount of generally 10-20% (depends on profit margin of product). - Bunnings gift card received at xmas and small gift (e.g. blender). - Lots of focus on safety and lots of online training is available (both in-store by supplier representatives and online modules) - Have programs setup in place if you want to be a future area manager or work your way up the chain. - Casuals get 1 week of sick leave (pro-rata if less than full time hours).

    Cons

    - More increasing feel like team members are being treated like shelf-fillers, with less focus on customer service. - Staff Budgets are being constrained over last several months/years so less team members are on the floor. This results in limited help for customers/having to walk around to find someone, less tidy store, higher work expectations for team members and lowering of morale. - Decisions made my store management/head office can be irrational at times. - Bank of hours system in place (for permanent team members), where if you work over your allocated hours, instead of paying you out at EOFY, they will force you to take time off.
