Positive work culture, useless managment

I've worked here for almost a year and I'm sick to death of it. I've complained about workplace conditions to management multiple times and nothing has been done about it. You're expected to put up with missing out on breaks, not getting support from leaders when needed, dodgy registers that break, being short staffed often and straight up favoritism of employees. You will get along with 98% of the other workers here but the way it feels, you're seen as a nobody if you don't work in a department. If you work in customer support, you will be verbally abused by customers on a daily basis with little support and no room to grow. I expect to resign very soon if things don't change.


Friendly co-workers, good pay, staff discount


Useless management, no support when needed, short staffed

Don’t bother asking managers about help with mental health. They’ll laugh and dismiss all issue and continue to not care about your health. They say they care about your health and constantly say it’s important- the second you mention it, they don’t care even when you’re a 17year old that’s on the verge of ending things due to the work environment. G4’s think they have the right to bully younger team members.


Union workers


Bad management, bully G4’s, mental illness isn’t cared about.

Good First Job

Bunnings is a good first time job offering young people a wide range of skills. Customers can be problematic however managers assist you when available.

Horrible work culture from management

The management were awful and the bullying and culture within the leadership group was disgraceful. Very unprofessional group with zero integrity. Not going to recommend to anyone until management are changed

Rubbish, wouldn't wish it on anybody.

Garbage company to work for.All about who you know or are related to in a small town to get any hours. City stores might be different.Apply elsewhere cause you will regret it.

Not as good as it looks

Worked at bunnings for 13 years been an older person I thought it would be good for me well I was so wrong no respect for older team members never got listened to work load got heavy as years went on , I stayed because I knew I would not get hired else where because of my age , management got worse as years went on , worked lots of nights and week ends ,young people would get preferred, ended up with depression and no one care I eventually left for my own health . I would not recommend for a career at Bunnings part time while looking for another job ok




No respect it’s all about getting stuff done

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.

Generally a good place to work as a uni student

The team and work culture are great. Casual pay is great for retail, however, there is a considerable drop in wage when you transition to part-time/full-time. Management are either great or bad. No inbetween.

Great team members, good discounts

Good place to work, work colleagues are great. Management can be a mixed bag (Currently have a very good Coordinator). Good discounts, work pace varies between very busy and relaxed/steady. Can be busy when not enough team members rostered on.

Brilliant place to work fantastic training and support

Really loved my time at Bunnings Waurn Ponds. Incredible team culture where management really care about team members and all staff support each other. Wish I could have stayed, but family financial requirements unfortunately meant I had to take up another employment option. Really hope to go back and rejoin in the future.

Was this review helpful?

helped me build work experience in customer service and develop knowledge of products and trades

It was a learning experience for me, in terms of DIY knowledge and product knowledge for a wide array of jobs. The management wasn't good however, they would push employees out of their position if you weren't viewed as competent enough; rather than training the individual. There were cliques in the team however I did develop great friendships too.

Great first job

Majority of staff are friendly and supportive. Managers look after team members, opportunities to move into management roles and career progression. Good workplace culture and benefits.

Changing culture

I have worked for Bunnings for a number of years now and have seen a real shift in the culture of the business. Once a fun and positive place to work is now demanding and often understaffed causing a lot of unhappy customers and team. Such a shame.
