Excellent Staff and Decent Pay - Would Recommend.

Big W was awesome to work out, staff was great and the pay was decent for the work I did. Would recommend for younger members of the workforce. I miss working there.

Great Casual Employment

I’m not sure if this is the experience for salaried workers, but I really love this job. The management staff are all kind and caring, and do a great job of keeping everything going smoothly. I can definitely approach wanting more or less hours. Have worked there for more than a year now and expect to stay a long time

Pros

Always rewarding staff with lunches, chocolates, activites

Cons

Hard to present ideas to management and have any changes

Easy going workplace

Great place to work with really good co workers. The job is enjoyable majority of the time. Sometimes you may deal with a few situation from customers that may put you off, besides that staff and management a really supportive.

Fun workplace - lovely crew

Overall I loved working for Bigw, it was fun I enjoyed helping customers. Team member were really lovely, although I would have liked being trained in all areas of the business. Their wasn’t much fairness when it came to training and hours. Some people were trained more then others and some hadn’t way more hours.

Pros

Great crew, work life’s balance

Cons

short hours no training

Great team and flexable, lots of fun and always super busy. Challenging and rewarding. Pay is fair and there is room to build your skill set in the future

Just bad.

Your co-workers, supervisors and team leaders will generally be very helpful, happy and encouraging and giving you clear direction on what's expected from you.Management is absolutely awful. There are so many negative things I could say about this business.It's good for a first job, but beyond that look elsewhere.

Pros

Free food sometimes, other team members are really friendly and understanding

Cons

Management is terrible, rarely any hours, the customers you have to deal with

Fun Workplace

A Brilliant workplace with supportive and friendly staff who are very inviting to new comers like i was, There were alott of things i enjoyed about working there but the thing i enjoyed the most was being able to meet new people every single shift and seeing the regulars.

Inefficient and Unproductive Processes in the Workplace

Extremely Clicky culture with a focus on ensuring "Outsiders" bringing in new ideas and help with the "Turn Around" are isolated and ostracised. Long Term Team Members and Management spend far to much time together outside of work, formulating Personal Vendictive Agendas.

Pros

No Pros

Cons

Smalled Minded, Self Centered, Non Educated Management
