job is handy enough, people working with you are good,but the management really changes the place. depending on how well the managers like you depends on how many hours you get regardless of contracts. Managers of smaller departments have serious power trips and treat some staff like lesser human beings seen a lot of HR nightmare moments in my time working, managers bullying staff and showing clear favouritism towards others. area managers tend to treat staff like dirt under their shoes when visiting unless your'e a manager.
Pros
The people you work with can be great
Cons
stuck on 3-11 90% of the time, no free lunch or even water.

I have worked indirectly for applegreen delivering petrol/diesel all over Ireland for the past 11/12 yrs i have been with them through good times and bad but the job got done I have been there with new trainees and have always tried to show them the way to get the job done safely and properly. Delivering to forecourt is a very different job than delivering to depots because of the amount of public around they don't understand the danger of delivering petroleum products so you have to be very aware of the public at all times
Pros
We get a free Tea/coffee

Minimum wage not justified for the constant tasks and responsibility for dangerous flammable liquids. Lack of perks such as tea/coffee creates a cold working environment. Regional and senior management look down on shop assistants. Simply but, treat your employees as you would like to be treated yourself and would go a long way in negating the negative reviews featured here and the high staff turnover
Pros
None
Cons
Pay, bad work to life ratio, poor Company management

Absolutely disappointed and fully stressed during work in applegreen . Have been working 2 years vent from deli assistant to sales assistant and supervisor after , minimum wage the more you work the more they expect have been doing supervisor job for 6 months with minimum wage I had to ask so many times for a pay rise to hear that I'm not good enough to get more money. Selfish manager and assistant manager the worst. Don't ever work with them
Pros
maybe experience
Cons
Bad management, racism, minimum wage, not at least free coffe, really busy, company dosent care about staff .

Worked for applegreen for a long time I would not reccomend that anyone should try get a job here. The more you do for the company the more they expect from you. No appreciation what so ever to there staff. Worked for minimum wage for 5 years never ever received a pay rise no matter how many times you ask for one. The times are awkward enough also. Honestly the worst company to work for STAY FAR AWAY
Pros
The staff are amazing
Cons
Too many !!

Absolutely terrible to work for, no respect for staff, no help when you ask for it, can't even have a free cup of coffee or tea. They never thank you, expected us to work during Covid and ignored our concerns. On the food side its absolutely dreadful blaming food managers for everything wrong. The salary is 25k a year for a food manager with full time staff making very close to what a manager makes
Pros
None
Cons
No respect

This place is a joke breaks the law and doesn't care about staff regardless of what age you are. How they get away with audits is beyond me as they don't follow the rules or regulations at all. I've been working in retail 15 years and had to correct managers here on my entitlements as they tried to tell me different and I knew my rights better than them. Their prices are crazy aswell a usual pr
Pros
Any day you ask for off you will probably get
Cons
Where do I start alot let's just put it that way

It's by no means easy being sale assistant in big forecourt but it's enjoyable when you know what you're doing and how quickly you adapt to understanding the small things that need to be done on daily basis but the best part of working there is how fast the day goes when you've got delivery coming in and keeping up the sales while getting to know the regular customers and it just makes it nice to have good co-workers and regulars.
Pros
Free meals, very friendly co-workers, lovely regular customers

Co workers were great ! But Manager had his spouse as a worker who bossed other workers and the spouse did not do their fair share , got time off when other staff couldn’t, no team spirit and no manner when speaking. No motivation only hostile tatics, no rapport with any staff, never answered his phone if needed. No job satisfaction unfortunately.
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
Bad management

They don't care about there staff, they had no problem breaking the law leaving 1 person alone on site for 8 hours with no lunch break or cover to use the toilet, management didn't want to know just said no budget for 2nd person even after a fire on the forcourth and being told 2 staff must be working, they really have no regard for employees, stay away far away

I worked with Applegreen for about a year and a half. My time there was always positive. I was very lucky to have great colleagues but also a great management team. The head office and area managers were also so helpful, nice and courteous when coming to visit and always had nice things to say. We never felt intimidated or worried about their arrival.
Pros
Great staff. Flexible shifts.
Cons
Very early mornings :)

With sincere honesty, Management were beyond incompetent. Breaks were routinely denied. You had to check your pay slip weekly to ensure you were paid correctly, then argue with management to get it corrected. Staff worked before without adequate training. Staff expected to work ourside their contracted roles without proper training. Emails to company HR were never returned.

Nothing is organized, i have applied and immediatelly started my work then to which i was not given any clothing and was right off told by the site manager that he doesn't like this, but he is the one that has to provide this. While we had a good team working all was great until the site manager started acting unprofessional after 2 months of my work and started complaining about everything to all staff. Encouraging people to leave, even made one of the younger staff members get back on using anti-depressants to deal with the situation. At the end of the day without any notice my hours were cut from 40 to 20 and then 3 days later was told that i will be let go. Overall the team and place was good but the management and especially the site manager are horrible. They do not care if you are not happy as they will just hire anyone that applies.

Disrespectful, racists, have to check your pay slip every week,mistakes with payment. Lazy, without knowledge and experience managers sitting in office and browsing FB, non-stop online on WhatsApp or playing games. The same time can't make orders right. Abusive and bullying in front of customers. Women has to do very heavy and difficult jobs,place is Not Safe for staff. Always short with staff,you have to do work for 2 or 3 people,but get €9,80 per hour only.
