B&Q is the UK’s leading home improvement and garden retailer. We’ve been helping customers create good homes since 1969. The way customers live, shop and use their homes may have changed over the past five decades, but they still need homes that work for every member of their household; homes that use space brilliantly, provide a balance of comfort and practicality, and are easy to maintain and improve so they look and feel great. And we’re still here for them – offering more bright thinking, big ideas, sustainable solutions and expert advice than ever.
We create good homes by making home improvement accessible for everyone.
Good place to work
Not every day is the same can get stressful but overall good place to work learning new things every day training is good and fair management knows what they are doing and your given your rota 2 weeks in advance
Fun place to work
B&Q is a fast paced place to work, the shifts go by relatively quickly and there is always something to do, I work on vans and picking orders for customers, it is fairly straightforward
Not a nice place to work
The management are bullies . I have never worked in such a toxic place , you work hard and they expect more ,so sort staffed everyone is leaving and the ones that are leaved are so stressed . And if you go higher in management thay don’t care .
Great People, but frustrating culture.
The people there are really lovely, I enjoyed my team so much. The thing that really got me to move on was the culture. I hadn’t worked in retail prior to this job and there’s a real lack of respect for processes. This then creates problems for other teams who have to fix something because the process wasn’t followed….but the market managers don’t care because their not following process increased sales….
Can be a toxic environment. Management stick together so even if you are right you are always wrong. Treat you like robots.
Such a high turnover of staff from all departments that puts pressure on the ones that stay to the point of high sicknesses with stress or eventually they look for other employment or quit.
Health & safety gone mad to the point you can no longer do you’re job and heavily encourage all employees to report on others anything they deemed to be unsafe.
