      Pros

      Working at Homebase means you have to be tough and durable when it comes to the job at hand. You’ll be working with all types of people and interacting with customers all day. - Many fun departments to work in, such as paint! - Great lines managers and store manager - Dulux MixLab - Team Member Discount Card

      Cons

      However the company as a whole is run poorly. The job can be stressful and the hours are long. Not to mention the customers have little patience when it comes to DIY stores. For that alone Homebase is not friendly to those who are non-DIY. You are meant to know everything you sell, where it is and at what price. Worst of all things seem to get worse rather than better these days. - Long Hours for Low Pay - Backbreaking Work - Little to no staff on the shop floor. Sometimes I was the only one there. - No Security, because you are security! - Only one benefit, the discount card - Broken hardware and equipment - Tight deadlines - No help or upgrades from HQ when requested
