Applegreen Employee Review
You will get hired, but that is not a good thing.
A typical day is being shouted at and treated like a moron, and that is just the customers, the "management" are worse. I learned that you may have a supervisor or management title, but you are not trained for that position to the same standards of any other similar sized company. The management need to be fully, and properly trained to run a department and deal with staff professionally. Not trained by the previous manager who obviously would like to see the place fail, and who they themselves had improper training. the culture is competition between staff and other departments, which is a good idea, but has turned into sabotage and mockery over mistakes. people generally get along with each other, with a select few frivolously logging complaints to chase a promotion and demean the competition. The hardest part of the job is getting everything done within your shift, i would describe it best as not choosing what needs to be done, but choosing what you want to be giving out for not doing. The most enjoyable part of the job is the weekends when little to no managers are around, and you can just get on with your work, because you are an adult.

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
Bad management, racism, minimum wage, not at least free coffe, really busy, company dosent care about staff .
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
