Replenishment staff in Dublin West, County Dublin
on 22 February 2020
Better than a Smyths
the team and supervisors made it barrable,money wasn't great, weren't sure when the cutoff point was so you never knew when or for what amount of work you got paid for.

Work work work
Not good to work for. Managers don't look after the staff. Managers don't back the staff. There's a clique in the store. You are forced to work extra hours. Terrible store manager, couldn't stand to work there anymore.. Actually this man made me very ill.

great place to work if you like working with people
I learned a lot of new skills in company. Management is very understanding and supportive. It's a great place where to learn new DIY tricks for your own home and share with customers
Customer Service Representative in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol

Worked at B&Q for 3 years and I never saw any appreciation for hard work, for anybody.
The management is B&Q’s main issue. In the store I worked in; the managers were comparable to a certain German dictator. My responsibility was with front end, which I enjoyed at first, as I had daily interactions customers and felt a great sense of worth. However, as the job went on my work became more unappreciated. They would “promote” people, but leave them on the same pay as a regular cashier.

Not good
The staff there are quite gossipy, they talk behind your back and make working there very uncomfortable. The management try to be helpful but it is a bit of a mess to be honest.
