Such a Great Company to Work For
Information Advisor (Current Employee) –  Stirling, Stirlingshire23 April 2018
I absolutely love working for Wren. Being 19 it can be difficult to find work that actually gives you a purpose and a direct role in the success of the company so I have been very lucky to experience that. The showroom has such a great energy and requires everyone working as team meaning you build great relationships with your coworkers. I'd recommend a job at Wren to anyone.
Pros
Supportive management
Cons
Sometimes have to stay behind after your shift is over to get work done, it's worth it though

Strangely Addictive
Kitchen Designer (Current Employee) –  Mid23 April 2018
Working at Wren can be so rewarding but also very stressful.

High Risk, High reward.. If you dont hit your sales you will be out of a job but when you do its worth every minute and every penny of commision you make.

Overall I love working at wren, and love the people that work here.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Working every weekend and every bank holiday.

poor management
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Romford, Greater London23 April 2018
great job role and work environment depending on which store you work within.

would not recommend Romford store as management is really poor, really negative atmosphere.

other stores however is the opposite, would definitely recommend to someone who has a drive to earn as it's commission based sales
Pros
Pay, Job Role

Lovely people to work with
information advisor (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London21 April 2018
weekends only with the option of overtime.
i am an expert in regards to kitchen knowledge i nevr thought id ever have.
Management is not consistant.
not enough team bonding and team spirit building
Hardest part of the job is leaving it up to others not to spoil your hard work up and mess up the sale
Pros
commision
Cons
sell sell sell

A Good Solid Family Run Business
Kitchen Designer (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire20 April 2018
This is a great company to work for. It is a solid job being a kitchen designer here as the company is family run/owned. So you know you have a good and sucure job here at Wren Kitchens if you put the work in. The holidays are great as well as the company is very generous with how many you get per year as it is considerably more than previous places of work. The training is also second to none so you always get the most up to date information about the company, changes to the system and latest products. The last thing I will say is about the management. At store level you get loads of support from the management team in terms of training and improving. They also keep everyone going making it feel like family not just your work team.
Pros
Great bonuses and Training
Cons
Long hours, Have to work every bank holiday.

Busy, but very rewarding
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Barton18 April 2018
A typical day at work would involve working as a Scrum Master within Wren's huge IT Development Team - coordinating daily stand-ups, planning meetings and showcases, dealing with blockers, producing reports and liaising with the business on their requirements. The work at Wren is fast-paced and innovative (not for the faint-hearted!) but it is so rewarding to see changes being rolled out and the benefits they bring in such a short time. The teams are young and dynamic and there's lots of fun to be had alongside the heavy workload. It's a great place for anyone who is willing to put the hours in to achieve good results and progress their career.
Pros
Great office, nice people
Cons
Long hours, high-pressure at times

Information Advisor (Current Employee) –  Stirling, Stirlingshire18 April 2018
I love my job at Wren! For my age group there’s not many options when it comes to employment so to work for Wren is a dream come true. I’ve made such great friends while making an excellent salary.

Kitchen Designer (Former Employee) –  North West17 April 2018
Very forward thinking business, but the mid level managers are very old fashioned approach, and very bully boy tactics are deeply set.
Could be brilliant company if they did away with the Area and Regional managers

Treat employees like 5yr old children
Delivery Assistant (Former Employee) –  Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire15 April 2018
Training was tedious. Day 3 involved an English lesson, to teach the difference between their, there and they’re!!! I have a degree and to top it off most of the training paperwork is full of written mistakes. If your a happy and outgoing person you won’t fit in, so shut up, don’t smile and don’t talk/laugh with ppl in your spare time this is not acceptable behaviour.
Pros
Car park
Cons
Bridge tolls, management, the lies

Great place to work , great opportunities for carrea progression.
UI/UX Designer (Current Employee) –  The Nest Barton-Upon Humber12 April 2018
I've been working with Wren Kitchens now for just short of three years, in that time I have moved from being a designer in the showroom, where the potential for earning a great salary is fantastic and proceeded with my career to the IT development team, it's a great place to work with plenty of opportunities to help you advance in your professional career. The working environment is fast-paced, the showrooms are not for the faint of heart, however, if you have the drive to succeed then you will do really well at Wren Kitchens.
Pros
Great carrea prospects, Great potetional earnings with uncapped commision
Cons
Not for the 9-5 life style

Half an hour break

Field Operations. (Current Employee) –  Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire12 April 2018
Wren is a fun and friendly place to work. The management have a very good work ethic which has an affect on the rest of the staff in a positive way. There's plenty of job opportunities and development within the business.
It's busy, meaning you have to be switched on at all times, however the job is rewarding.
Pros
Free gym
Cons
How hot the office is.
