This is a great place to work. The rate of pay is always above minimum and it continues to grow. The work itself varies from busy to slow paced and challenging to very easy to do. Once you understand the processes no job is too hard and the training is of a high standard. The only issue is that the contract means hours are highly variable.
It was a great place to work at. There are days where there wouldn’t be a lot of people in to buy things so you have to keep yourself busy. And then there will be days that it will be so busy that time will fly, I was a Christmas staff so I was able to see the peak days and then after Christmas I was also able to see how their regular days are like. Overall I really enjoyed my job and the staff where the friendly and so helpful. It made it coming to work really great
Overall my experience of working in argos was a positive experience. The only draw back at the time was the manager she was a bully to say the least. She did not have the ability or skills to deal with customers or staff. I would rate the company 6 out of 10
as christmas staff you were not treated as fair as long term staff. it was my first job so it thought me a lot with customer service etc.. the management was not communicating with the christmas staff as much so we never really new what our plan was for the day.

The managers had a huge respect for the employees and that alone helped the team bond and become better. Any new employees were treated just the same as everyone else and taught really quickly how to run the shop. The hardest part of the job personally was how short the hours were, even on full time I would only get 4-5 hours a day which was less than ideal but I wished to help the company do well so I stayed.
Management where always the bane of my time here sadly, even on my second day they started explaining how I had fell behind on targets even though I was still learning to use the tills, I was left alone alot in the early stages as a kind of sink or swim way of training but in reality it just puts you off, 6 months later I was still doing things wrong and management where constantly all over me be it for not doing anything (the store was empty and I had recently been out to clean it) or for not hard selling rpc which I had tried to be inventive with but I aren't going to force it down people's throats there comes a point you have to walk away. Had it not been for the terrible training and aggressive and unfair managers I think I would have enjoyed it alot more here.

Management and training
Recieved very good training for the job role. It was an enjoyable job but their work demands were too high. I was unable to commit to their hours due to my personal life. Overall it was an enjoyable job. All staff are very nice and friendly as well as management.
Argos is a great place to work if you get a chance to. All staff are very nice and considerate and the management is amazing. You get to do a variety of jobs around the shop so you never get bored working here. I had a great time in argos and cant complain.
