    I worked at Reece full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The stories of how good it once was to work for Reece.

    Cons

    Manager was out of their depth for position and compensated with bully management style and encourage this same type of management style from leaders. Differences in pay rates is astonishing, same position with 30k difference. Busy recruiting new people with great capabilities but dont know what to do with them once they start. My one and only training opportunity was delivered by a senior leader, who asked you to tell...

    Advice to Management

    HR - Listen to the voice of the people, where there is smoke there is fire. Stop covering up bad behaviour from your senior leaders. Execs - Get your heads back in the business and have a look whats going on.

    Pros

    Good company culture, and a high service ethic.

    National pay structure doesn't work well for employees working in more expensive areas.

    Should take an audit of of the salary structure to see if people are being paid fairly relative to where they are employed.

    I have been working at Reece full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The people are great - Great culture - If you put yourself forward, there are many opportunities throughout the organisation you can go for - Promote from within - The organisation is huge, there are so many areas to learn and find what you are interested in - Get to know the other grads in your program - Lots of training and development

    Cons

    - Can be very long days in branch - In some cases, you may be required to work every second Saturday in branch for four hours

    Advice to Management

    - Side projects for grads whilst in branch. The branch time is a lot of labour work and sometimes grads need more mentally stimulating tasks. - Make sure you place grads in branches close to wherever they live, as the travel to and from work can be an overall killer.

    I worked at Reece full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of my fellow workers were cool people Plenty of branches so you'll be able to find one close to home Decent staff discounts

    Cons

    Low pay, you could get more money being a manger at Aldi Long hours, working 7-5 everyday and Saturday as well with no overtime. Toxic work atmosphere, you are essentially being trained by a 2IC who hates you because you are being trained to be that position. You will be treated like garbage because Reece encourages employees to stab each other in the back to get higher positions. One of our employees committed suicide...

    Advice to Management

    Advice to upper management is pointless as all they do is ignore and just make fake five star reviews like they have done on this site. They have been fully indoctrinated in the Wilson cult and can't think for themselves. This operation grad is a sham, if you worked part time in retail for Uni and hated it then this is practically a full time retail job but only worse. I was unfortunately fooled into this program...
