Fun workplace but management were sometimes unprofessional

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Sometimes management abused their power by cutting shifts when casual members had valid issues to address with them, claimed to be “not sitting at the ivory tower cracking their whips” but their actions showed otherwise. Great work culture within the team though, great pay and overall good experience.

It was fine, but not for me.

I worked there for a few weeks, but it just wasnt for me, I was placed in the Trade section and it was either really busy or pretty slow. You will be assisting customers all day and most people are okay but you do get some aggressive and impatient customers. It was challenging for me as I had zero knowledge of trade products, so in the end I decided to go back to my old job that didnt have people in your face all the time. Just my opinion, others may have had different experience. IF youre a people person you will do well. Personally Im not really a people person.


Great company culture, friendly team.


Dealing with customers all day every day. Training could be better.

Long time from interview to start working

Good discount, management definitely have their purple circle people, lots of online training for your personal development, get to help customers across all sections of the store which is fun, variety of hours to work within.

Good company

Pretty relaxed workplace, good for uni, high school students and retirees. Generally a decent place to work for with opportunities available through the future leaders program.

Good place to work but management can be bullies

Work in admin for 18 months. You have to stand up for yourself as they will try and override your rights. Even as permanent full-time I had shifts changed without notice and was put on a lower pay rate than my job entitlement. Aside from this the overall vibe was good but only a few stay for more than a couple of years.

Very boring, underpaid. Overworked, no chance of advancement. Management sucks. Only good thing about working at Bunnings are the free sausage sizzles team members get

Fun, good team and good pay

Fun, good team and good pay. It is a great place to work and doesn't require any previous skills. You learn as you go along. Company culture is very nice and secure job outlook - they always need team members to work.

Great role for handyperson

Really good mix of hands-on work and customer service. I found many customers knew what they wanted and were in need of direction to the product. Very interesting job if you are into DIY and the discount is fantastic.

Productive and hands on work experience

Gave myself an eye opener on the expectations and life of working in retail. Learned a lot during work experience on customer service and many other roles that occur within retail work.

Was a work experience student but I had loads of fun

Although I was a work experience student, my two weeks at Bunnings was AMAZING. The very relaxing work combined with the easy and outgoing people made the whole experience a fun and enjoyable one.

Good money but not great management

After a couple years at Bunnings I can fairly say its not the worst job in the world. You'll always deal with nagging and impatient customers as to be expected with any retail outlet. However when it comes to management, from my experience I would much rather put up with the customers. From petty complex managers who get upset because you can't work the weekend and decide to cut shifts from you over time until you beg and whinge for more work. To even fellow employees who either don't know what they are doing, leading you to realize that they lie in the ads when they state "we hire trade and industry professionals" when really they hire anyone who can count currency or has the ability to say "Hello" and smile. If you are a casual, you'll see a pattern over time. They will pretty much give you full time hours (30-40 hrs/week), giving you this false sense of security and then one day BOOP! No more shifts and there is a 4-6 month drought of any work. In summary, Bunnings Warehouse isn't the best or most rewarding place to work.

Workplace peace

A typical day at Bunnings was very pleasant as there was a lot of work but there was also a lot of workplace peace which let to do my job in passion. The management gave the employees a lot of ease and responsibilities as they were trustion. The employees were very helpful in work, as if thing would every become messy they would all get togeather and solve it. The most hardest part of the job was when there would be customers trying to disrupt thing in the store and make more work for the employees but the most enjoyable part was to get a good bonus at the staff canteen for doing a better job of the day.


discount on tool, batteries, sheds, etc.


customers being rude, shoplifters.

Not a happy place to work.

No Support, training or Integrity. Management has no clue in dealing with people or circumstances. Unfortunately an unhappy place to work. Too many people not held accountable.

Amazingly Fun

The Bunnings in Belmont is such a great place to do work experience even if you do almost the same thing everyday, Bunnings is filled with so many great workers and customers.

It was always busy which was very good as it made working very nice. There was a bit of racial discrimination towards me and hence it made working difficult a few months before i left.

Fun workplace at times

Everyday at Bunnings are mostly enjoyable ones. There is something new to learn or a new set of skills to gain everyday. It can be stressful at times during peak hours of the day and not enough staff around to help. I enjoy working with lovely people who make being there a lot more fun.


Free lunches and team members


long hours, stressful at times

Quality and successful production

I used to work in one of the most busiest departments in Bunnings which was Paint. My most enjoyable part of working in the warehouse were the customers and the flow of things. It's fast-paced, lot of pressure and you learn many skills and attributes. The hardest part of my job was to have patience when multitasking multiple duties while being overwhelmed by customers who are in a hurry. Managing time and prioritising my tasks were crucial in my job. The workplace is very diverse with exceptional relationships between employee and customer/client.


Busyness, enjoyment from customers


Short hours.
