      Great career development and network of team from the country is great support, good pay, great sense of achievement.

      Cons

      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.

      Advice to Management

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

          I have been working at Bunnings Warehouse full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Great team, supportive, flexible with hours, etc. This isn't always the case, i got lucky and found a good store with good team.

          Cons

          The major flaw with Bunnings is upper management, and wage budgets. Wages are set as a percentage of sales, so when it's quiet, there are less people on the floor. Team are constantly short staffed, sick leave is high due to the stress. Team are expected to help out in other areas they're not skilled in. Customers get upset due to lack of team on floor. Head office have instigated automatic ordering systems that get it...

          Advice to Management

          INCREASE THE WAGE BUDGETS & STOP MAKING THE SHARE PRICE THE PRIORITY. IF YOU CONTINUE WITH CONDITIONS AS THEY ARE, CUSTOMER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO DECLINE. TAKE CARE OF YOUR STAFF. PAY MORE - THIS JOB IS STRESSFUL AND IT NEEDS A BETTER RATE OF PAY. STOP AVOIDING THESE ONGOING ISSUES AND PAY ATTENTION!!! (I doubt you will thou!).
