What are working conditions like at Wolseley UK?

Pros

Parking on site Some nice people

Cons

Job experience I think depends on what team you are part of, unfortunately I was treated like a Traitor as soon as I handed in my notice. Felt picked on and bullied by people above me and under me. The company’s idea of flexible working is a joke, facilities on site are terrible, very old and dated company along with people who have been there a very long time and unwilling to change or adapt. The location is far (unless you live in Ripon) and they don’t care about their employees or their wellbeing despite telling themselves they do. Everyone is in it for themselves and is ready to snitch on you at the drop of a hat. No team spirit what so ever and everyone is watching everybody else. I’ve never felt so uncomfortable working somewhere before, I was scared to even say anything in case it was used against me. They also favour certain people and allow them to get away with things or treat people in a certain way, so basically people aren’t treated fairly. If you do make a complaint or come across a problem, don’t expect any support from anyone in fact expect to be told you’re the problem and watch them brush the real problems under the carpet. However, it’s the ideal job for you if you already are related to someone else who works here, love routine and hate change, live in Ripon and love grassing people up/ being grassed upon.

Advice to Management

Deal with the actual problems and don’t ignore them, treat all employees equally and don’t let people get away with things just because it’s easier than confronting them. Also the office needs some serious investment and their needs to be a total change in working culture otherwise this company is stuck where it is and you’ll never attract good talent.
