    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Reece full-time

    Pros

    Lots of learning and training Great relationship building Quite flexible (depending on management) Learn all aspects of a branch (from deliveries to quoting) Mix of blue and white collar work Bonus scheme Lot of career progression if your willing to push

    Cons

    Depending on management, can be quite top-down, leaderless approach No set breaks, sometimes work while eating Wage on the lower side Long and un-wanted forced hours Management disappears mid-day, leaving inexperienced staff to run the branch Lot of push-sell giving employees and management ego boost and superiority which leads to malice and jealousy of other competitors No 1.5x penalty rate on Saturday Bonus feels un-rewarding You feel guilty for calling in sick because branches refuse to share employees when understaffed

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great Induction Helps develop soft skills Experience is valuable in many forms, you learn a lot as an operation graduate

    Cons

    Operations isn’t a graduate program, it is marketed as a graduate program to attract capable, educated individuals to bridge a growing skills shortage. Joining the branch network is akin to career suicide, you won’t progress beyond a retail environment.
