How are the career development opportunities at Wolseley UK?

Pros

Company based training is done really well. You will have plenty of opportunities to train in various aspects of the company and gain extensive product knowledge. These trains can result in qualifications as well if you wish to pursue. As Wolseley is a large company, there is potential for advancement within the various roles.

Cons

This is a male dominate industry and working environment that struggles to accommodate women. If you are working at branch level, your time is not your own. Work life balance does not exist with many working overtime without compensation or recognition.

Advice to Management

Visit more of your branches and see how things really are.

How are promotions handled at Wolseley UK?

Pros

Good people, friendly atmosphere, left alone to get on with the job with minimal supervision, remote working was possible even before lockdown.

Cons

Little scope for career development due to small IT dept, no merit pay rises due to increase in experience or hard good quality work, or promotion to role with more responsibility. Bonus scheme was negligible and based on whole companys targets rather than individuals performance. Company targets were never reached, so never remember seeing one of these small bonuses.

Advice to Management

Better grading / pay banding system needed so people can receive individual merit pay awards recognising people taking on new skills or responsibilities, increase in experience of several years, even if staying in same role. After Senior status, there was no further promotion or pay rise offere. A better individual bonus scheme is also needed so people are rewarded for hard / quality work rather than just the current across the board one if the company as a whole reaches its target.
