Life at Bunnings is very varied, you can have a quiet day with sufficient colleagues in your section (hate calling them team members) or be alone and receive 10 pallets of stock. Rostering can also be inconsistent and create situations where you must manage multiple departments. Training consists of online modules on workday, training days with brands and any info passed down from co-workers. Management can be understanding and competent or separated from those on the floor. Their lack of experience creating unrealistic expectations and exerting downwards pressure. A feeling of "us vs them" persists with relatability lacking and the likely true observation that your manager is not there for your benefit. That said if you're lucky you can tailor your roster to suit your activities but shifts occasionally change without warning so be aware of that. The culture doesn't reward hard work as that is rewarded with a coffee card or a certificate and socks most of the time. colleagues are generally friendly and happy though. The hardest part of the job is the physical work that may be required as well as dealing with different instructions from different people as a result of poor communication. Colleague interactions and payday are the highlight of the job. You can develop close bonds with people that extend out of the store. Speaking of pay, I believe it is reasonable and performance reviews results can result in a rise. You can also receive in-store credit called E-Balance. All in all, if you are happy with physical work and have good management it can be enjoyable - 


Flexibility, job security (most of the time)

Productive and Engaging

Great teamwork and hardworking team who all work collaboratively together for a common goal. Quite physically demanding at time’s especially in the hotter months. You are given a lot to learn in a short amount of time but there are many team to help you find your feet and succeed. Many opportunities to go further in the business.

Ok but management is terrible

Easy going job that pays well for a young person but be prepared for a culture that encourages a fair bit of bullying and does not care for its casuals

Gungahlin store

At first was great to work in but you then started to notice the workplace management billing and harassment. Sooo many people quit because of this, if the management did not like you then you were always a target. Let alone hirring a whole cafe staff just to get rid of them and keep one to get unexpierence people from all departments within the store.

Not too bad

The job itself is actually quite good for retail, there is a lot of space for autonomy in decision making and this helps the time go by a bit faster. Workplace culture is a bit lacking though unfortunately.

I started with Bunnings 18 months ago and was informed when I started that it would be 3 strikes and your out system. They called 2 times while I was at school to see if I could work and I haven't heard from them in 12 months.

A perfect side-job for myself as I studied at university

Working here allowed me to adapt to the work as much as the workplace adapted to my needs. Management was negotiable and you could always work towards areas that you would prefer. The culture was decent and respectful, all in all a professional environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the small joys that come with working retail; resolving problems and bonding with customers. As with retail, the biggest challenges were when things go wrong, such as difficult customers and communication breakdowns.


solid pay and work respect within the environment


irregular weekly hours (casual)

Great place to work.

Great place to work. Love the people and environment. Just not the direction I seek at this time. With my experience and drive, I am looking for more fulfilling and expansive work.
