Woodie's DIY Employee Review

Retail

Retail is Retail, co-workers are key. Without a good group the place would be dull. Worked there for about 6 years. Nearly impossible to get a work life balance once they become dependent on you

Enjoyable work, great atmosphere and friendly managers

I really enjoyed working at woodies. I got to learn a lot about horticulture and I met a lot of fun and interesting people. Managers are friendly and are open to any discussions. Working hours were difficult at times, particularly when college got tough but summer hours were nice

Pros

Long lunch breaks, loads of benefits

Cons

Difficult working schedule

Quite boring and stressful at times

It was ok, I was part time student and some times I felt as if I was taken for granted. The hours were bleak and not many holidays were given. Management were unorganised at times

Worst Place to wprk ever

Worse place to work ever, work you to the bone for peanuts. Management (with the exception of 2 team leaders) dont care about there staff, literally no work/life balance. Expect you to be experts at everything with no training. Favourites got advancments. One guy with mental health issues was told take a pill and get over it. Heard recently that the manager in question was moved to another store (god help them).

Pros

1 team leaders whos name starts with D

Cons

Pay, upper management, poor job advancement, poor moral, not enough space to type them all
