Great company, Great Team, Great Opportunity

Featured review

Wren Kitchens selected this as a representative review
Since starting with Wren, not only have I felt that I have developed as a salesperson, I also feel that I have gained far more knowledge of the industry and gained a new skillset that I did not have before. The management and team at Wren Slough are a vibrant, multicultured and welcoming group of people, who have nurtured and supported my development from the offset. Having a learning disorder means that I take longer to learn new processes and skills, but Wren have been endlessly supportive of my extra needs and I feel I am progressing at a healthy rate.I am very excited for the future with Wren.


Great team, Supportive Managment, Challenging work

Great staff, poor management

Loved the people but the management team needs a lot of work, a lot of favouritism going on and not enough support for the remaining staff. Training is good in the beginning but then a mixture of opinions can confuse your judgement.

Long hours but good pay

Early starts and late finishes but all overtime is paid and you will always get paid for a 48 hour week. Only criticism is planning with regards to inaccessible properties in the big wagons and unrealistic unloading times. All in all not a bad place to work if you are willing to put the graft in. Most of the drivers are awesome. If you can take the early starts and heavy lifting it isn't too bad.

you have to learn a lot, but in a great company

I'm with Wren a month now. People in my showroom are warm, nice and welcoming. My managers are very helpful, knowledgeable and supportive.There is plenty to learn, but you will be provided with library of materials and e-learnings. I was even provided with a mentor.


hour lunch break, positive work environment


sometimes work till 8pm

What is the best part of working at the company?Finishing time. When you can go home and rejoin the human race.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Pressure to force customers to pay a deposit. It's immoral What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Bullying from showroom managers and area managers What is a typical day like for you at the company?Unpaid early starts for management pep talks. Pressure from every angle to hit unreasonable targets

Great place to work

4 weeks in and wow! on the 3rd week you go for a week training at the head office (the nest) which is brilliant. Personally I have never done anything with kitchens in the past and now I am confident I can go forward in my career and succeed. Management are great, very helpful when ever you need to know anything. Always supportive


Salary, Training, work life balance

Management amazing supportive plenty of training provided good system

Company has high freshhold so on the months where footfalls are low is almost impossible to get commission. Minimum base salary and 40h contract but you work 45h as the brakes are unpayed. Long day sat 8.30am to 6pm.

Awful management, hard work that was underpaying

Usually did 2 hours of overtime a day which was the only positive at the job as it paid 1.5x however the job on dispatch was very physically demanding the management at parrot street late shift was extremely poor as the higher up had no idea about anything regarding that department and often failed to provide us with equipment that we needed for the job hence work flow was poor very often and the morale was down.


Decent overtime pay


Short breaks, poor management, toxic work environment

Good pay but no work life balance.

Hours can be long and the work is heavy but they pay a good wage and job security is good providing you stick to the rules. Unpredictable finish times and starts as early as 4am means it's not great for someone with a family.

Good Showroom with Amazing Colleagues and Management

After migrating to the UK, Wren is my first Professional job. I had an amazing training at the showroom as well as in the head office. The company takes time to train their designers and does not push to achieve their target. They give enough time to learn and practice. All the colleagues and managers are helpful and can approach anytime if any help needed.


Good showroom, Friendly Colleagues and Manager, Good Pay.


Some days are long working days like 11 hrs.

Very poor place to work with bosses and not leaders. They do not care about you.

Management is poor. They don’t lead you. They place to much pressure on you and they don’t care about you as a person. You are treated as a number. It is not a nice atmosphere to work in. Most of the staff are scared to speak up as they are frightened to lose their jobs.


Day shift


Unpaid breaks. Unpaid overtime.

To be honest, I’ll rate my experience an average. Work should be fun and the thought to going back after a weekend should not be scary as it is here.

What is the best part of working at the company?The fair pay compare to others in the industry What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Unfriendly managers that lacks leadership skills and emotional intelligence.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Culture seems intense. People are always watching back due to some people are tasked to snitch on others. The environment also lacks diversity of cultures and ideas from team members. HR is completely distance from people, leaving people management to unskilled managers.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Go in and do your part. Work there is fast paced and you can’t seem to get it right with them as they keep asking for more.

Great place to work

Great place to work, such huge potential, each day is a school day . The progression of the company is massive, the state of the art facilities and transport makes it the ideal place to work.

Amazing company

I have returned to work for Wren Kitchens and the training and support has been amazing. Big thank you to Karen Ward who facilitated the academy training and also to my management team who have been extremely supportive too. Great company to work for an amazing opportunity to build a career in one of the leading retail companies in the country.


Great commission, world class training, amazing work environment
