Featured B&Q job reviews

  • Best thing

    The hours are regular and occasionally overtime’s available but not compulsory, often bargains are available to staff before customers. 1hour lunch breaks are great and I always take them at a reasonable time. The workplace is local and some colleagues are friendly, there’s often someone who can handle Amy issues customers present to you.

    Worst thing

    Unskilled management team who have their own agendas, often trying to give different instructions through the day. Petty school playground mentality amongst staff and many who bring their outside issues into the workplace. Equipment to carry out different work tasks is very limited preventing effective and satisfactory customer service.

  • Best thing

    Team are great, managers are nice. Opportunities to get extra training and overtime at busier times. My manager fits my rota around sixth form.

    Worst thing

    As it is a DIY store customers ask alot of questions about products which you may know nothing about, sometimes they will get annoyed if you do not know the answer. Delivery days can be a bit frantic particularly, when having to balance it with other duties such as paint mixing if you work in Décor.
