Poor pay & a badly ran company
Woodies pay minimum wage without any possibility of this ever rising more than a couple of cents for the vast majority of employees. What this ultimately means is that they struggle to find adequately qualified staff who are capable of selling the products that they stock. Also as they do not provide full time contracts, for the most part all they can manage to employ is teenagers looking for a weekend job to get them through school or college. For someone looking for this kind of employment, its not a bad place to work. Furthermore, despite the low rate of pay, they are constantly understaffed & expect the staff they do have to undertake multiple, unachievable tasks.

Overall, the company is a dis organised mess with an out of touch leadership & management team with notions of grandeur.
Pros
Sociable hours. Double time on weekends
Cons
Pay, management

Brief discouraging but honest review of Woodies after 8 years employment.
Worked in Woodies DIY for 8 years through undergraduate and post-grad years.
Really would not have bothered reviewing but I found the available reviews quite suspect and possibly scripted.

Just under 8 years working with no blemish on record and having keen personal interest in DIY. Worked on the floor,desk tills etc. Started work in 2007 on 9.06 EUR/hr left in 2016 on 9.25EUR/hr.

You will be systematically referred to as colleagues that are 'experts' in the field. You are required to act as an expert and advise customers on products from an 'experts'' point of view some of which are quite expensive with cursory or in the most part zero training. Hoodwinking customers is the general order of the day because trust me working for 9EUR an hour with no bonus and no reasonable chance of a raise does not attract the employ of ''experts'' but it does attract needy students like myself at the time.
With nearly 8 years experience working in this company I can hand-on heart not recommend this place as a long term place of employment nor as a place for quality honest service with great value.IF advice and piece of mind is required be sure to at least consult the internet or a reputable DIY store that can offer honest practical advice prior to purchasing. I will stand by any of these comments and will reply if needed to any perspective customer or job seeker looking at Woodies DIY as a possible employer.Main tip ....work there for as long as it suits you...don't kill yourself because of encouraging head office emails...because that is what they are emails, some lies and general flirtation - more...
Pros
staff discount, some great people
Cons
Head office apathy towards workers. treatment of staff. Decieving customers
