Poorly managed and no scope for progression
Not overall a particularly bad company to work for on a individual store basis, however as a company they are very poorly managed.
There is absolutely zero scope for progression, no recognition of hard working employees and you are taken advantage of daily. Lazy store managers, incompetent advice from regional and a general feeling of being completely worthless will eventually grind your mental and physical well-being to the ground. In light of recent world events, B&Q were very quick to make publicly known that they wished to support and protect their staff, this however was completely false - campaigning in the background to remain open. There is a complete disregard for staff and public safety. They purely seek to capitalise on a global health crisis. Encouraging people to leave their homes and queue in their thousands to purchase non essential items, putting staff at risk. We don't want to be there, we would rather be safe at home.
No progression, Capitalising on a global health crisis, Management don't care
