Replenishment Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sprucefield – 19 October 2018
I enjoyed my time with the company, very friendly staff and a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work for the company and would recommend it to anyone who was thinking of applying for a role within the company.

B&Q is generally a fun place to work, like most companies it can have it's ups and it's downs, but being a part of night crew, we all got on perfectly well and became a great team, unfortunately like most good things it had to come to an end, if ever there was an opportunity to come back to B&Q on nights, I would gladly take it.
Customer Adviser (Former Employee) – Devon – 18 October 2018
When I started at B&Q the company benefits were very good. Kingfisher (B&Q Owners) have stripped there company down for a takeover that never happened. Multiple reinventions and CEO changes have left B&Q a broken struggling company.
Working at B&Q can be tough at times especially if you're new and are at a larger store. But the staff are mostly friendly and help you along the way. In my experience, my manager was hard on my rota and didn't allow me to change my hours or my rota as I worked 2 8 hour shifts on the weekend and then went to college the next day. But my manger did offer me another place within the store which I declined. Working there can be tiring as you're constantly on the move and dealing with customers and you don't often get to complete tasks given to you. And my uniform especially was uncomfortable as it was black and the stitching rubbed on the inside of my leg which isn't helpful for skin if you have sensitive skin. But the pay is much better than in comparison to other places. I was supposed to be on £8.03 an hour as described on the advert. But, I was getting 550 per month for 16 hours a week (£8.70 a WEEK!). I would recommend working there if you can tolerate customers and can balance this type of work with other things such as college.
Great pay, discounts on phones, cinemas ect., good staff
management may not be good, tiring, can throw you in the deep end.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – Poole – 17 October 2018
Great company to work for, had lovely work colleagues, we were like one big family, it’s a shame night shifts are no longer applicable. Night shift management were there for us whenever we needed them. I learnt how it’s good to be part of a close knit team. The hardest part was being made redundant
Great company if you wish to progress up the ladder, you can start from to bottom and work your way to the top. Great pension and share scheme, and as a manager you are empowered to make the right choices.
Dont work here for an agency! You lose hours. Cant pay bills. The management suck. No matter how desperate you are avoid it at all costs! Wincanton may be better. I worked here when dhl had the contract.
busy , work with great people, constantl challenging
replen supervisor (Current Employee) – Stockport, Greater Manchester – 6 October 2018
my job consisted off breaking down and seggrating stock into various depts , then assigning staff to these depts to get the stock put away, any questions or queries regarding stock or other job related activities went through my self and the other supervisors. i learned a great deal whilst i was here i got a bendi license counterbalance , first aid and fire champion certification . i also attended a keys holders course which then permitted me to be left in charge over night to replen the store.the hardest part was being short staffed then having to deal with a large delivery,but it kept us on our toes ,the best part i have to say was the people i worked with we had a laugh which made those hard nights more managable
Nightshift Replenishment (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 6 October 2018
Used to be an excellent place to work. It's the employees that make the job good. It's the directors with their cost cutting that are killing the place. Probably haven't worked in a shop in their life.
