    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 and the 2IC was openly happy about this as they didn't get along. Worst workplace I have ever worked at. No mentorship whatsoever, you will be trained by fellow employees who will just use you to put stock away and to serve customers. Management will always take the customers side and will allow staff to get abused because they are just blue collar tradies and thats just how they talk.

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

    Pros

    Like anywhere, some good people there who are genuine and will help. Technology can be interesting. Often freedom given in solutions.

    Cons

    People thrown under the bus by some colleagues . Management double standards in their R10 values - will say one thing and do another. Long hours without appreciation. Pay for expectations poor. Plenty of cliques. Bad location. Micro management in some areas, although largely autonomy given. HR department will not support you when you go to them in confidence. Not what you know, it's who.

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. It sounds like the behaviour of some of your colleagues meant you didn’t get to see how great Reece can truly be. On the flip side, it sounds like you did manage to work with some of our good eggs. As you experienced, reecetech is growing and changing rapidly, and we agree that what’s happening in our technology space is pretty interesting. We’d love to get in touch and understand more about your experience, if you want to drop us a line? careers@reece.com.au

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

    Pros

    Some company benefits are available

    Cons

    - long hours (9 hour days) - low pay (salary includes overtime and is still low) - company doesn't value education. You'll still start in a branch no matter how qualified or smart you are and be there for 12+ months - All training is done in house, and trainers don't have training qualifications - They expect it takes 12 months to less the Reece systems - Mentorship and professional development is minimal. You'll be learning from other staff at the branch, who don't have experience in your field, and who aren't qualified to train you - After 12 months in branches full time, you go part time branch part time office so you're still not where you want to be

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

    Pros

    It is a successful business and the company is stable.

    Cons

    Awful culture. Old school boys club except these boys got no education. Very long hours, terrible location, no parking for lower-end staff. Some bullies are allowed free rein.
