B&Q Galway is a very well stocked shop for DIY. There sometimes however is not nearly enough staff to provide outstanding customer service. Management turnover is heavy. Long-term employees are not overly appreciated for the work they do and the skills and knowledge they possess. There are some truly outstanding employees and managers. Typical day is all about customer service and merchandising routines.
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.
Long out of hours
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

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.
Difficult to progress in the company .poor management. No encouragement to advance . Poor salaries. Lack of appreciation by managers for the work the team does. Not enough floor staff. Good sharesave scheme. Poor salaries that were subsidised by team bonuses but thease have been stopped this year leaving staff under valued.
Low salaries. No advancement . Poor management.
Great team on the floor. Rediculous over the top health and safety procedures. Loved my colleagues and most management. No Confidence in head office. There is plenty of It errors
Team are like family
Computer systems rarely work and a huge amount of procedures
Working at B&Q was overall a fantastic experience. I made life long friends there. The management were the nicest I have ever encountered in a job and the staff were like family.
Great work environment. Bonuses. Hours to suit your family life. Social clubs.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Everyone there was absolutely lovely, and it was a great place to work. A very diverse workforce there, and each one of them very welcoming. Cant say a bad word about B&Q, everyone was so nice, and considerate, and when I needed a day of, for example, they were more than accommodating. I would recommend to anyone.
Friendly staff, all the way up to management
Very repetitive work
I work in the Admin office which is the hub of the store - everything happens in this office - and there is never a quiet day. Most of the staff use the office for printing off things and anything to do with pricing. It is a high traffic area. There is something to learn everyday in B&Q which is great because there is always something new. I have learnt all there is to know about receiving - deliveries and booking in process, chasing credits and making sure our database is correct. It is my responsibility to make sure all of these things are correct and it is a huge part of the HHT (stocktake) process. The management are quite easy to deal with. I get on well with all of them. I really like all the staff whom I work with also, we all get on really well together and there is a great rap-our between us all. The hardest part of the job is being on top of everything including making sure the database is correct and all the stock and credits are accounted for but mostly to make sure that I am up to date on any changes in procedures in the pipe line for our store. There is alot to my job but the hardest parts of the job are also the most enjoyable part of the job - aswell as the staff with whom I work with day in and day out.
learning something new everyday, opportunities to expand my qualifications through in house training, ie hikq in decor obtained in store 2011 get on well with all staff, staff discount.
can't think of any cons thank god.
