Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – ireland – 15 August 2017
Working in argo was great for building confidence in customer service roles, as you are interacting with customers and staff all day, i found it a very friendly place to work, I especially enjoyed christmas time in Argos, as going that little bit extra to help a customer is really rewarding, i would recommend Argos as a place of employment.

Customer Advisor (Former Employee) – Galway – 2 May 2017
Worked at argos galway for a year. They would let you work 3 hours 45 mins in order to save money on paying us a 15 minute break. Got bullied. Called names. One of my final days here ended as i was told "sure we can replace you just as quick as you leave". Got barely any training in argos. The company is fine. Its just the management in galway that is the problem. Not a nice place to work.
Operations Team Leader (Former Employee) – Galway, Ireland – 5 April 2017
No work life balance if you are a team lead or above. The culture can be pretty good depending on the store/manager. Most days can be pretty quite but during the holiday be prepared to sacrifice time with family for work

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dundalk, County Louth – 3 October 2016
I liked working here and learned a lot when the manager wasn't around. All the staff were lovely and great to work with but unfortunately the management in this store is very poor. The manager didn't know how to perform some transactions on tills yet expected staff to know it all, and it was generally left to the 2 assistant managers to train them up. In reality, the assistant managers basically managed the store as the manager spent very little time in the place, and everyone worked better under them as the manager tends to give her friends and relatives who work there preference over other staff members, and gives younger staff members a tough time, regardless of their good customer reviews.
Stock Room Team Leader (Former Employee) – Dublin – 18 July 2016
This job was probably one of the most fun and challenging. The level of work fluctuated regularly, particularly at peak times such as Christmas. This company had quite a high turnover of staff, so it was a pleasure meeting and training new people on a regular basis.
