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

    Pros

    Training and pretty good just do not skip it. Uniform is comfy and looks good. Quite a social group.

    Cons

    Low Pay is a key factor. When other employees make the joke if you want money go work at MacDonalds you know its low income. Stacking of tasks with no reward. Potential carrot on a stick for management positions.

    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
