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.
Pros
The online rota, free coffee and tea
Cons
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.

I worked in Argos for just under 2 months, within that time I was bullied and contradicted not only by staff but management. I was not paid for 5 weeks straight. A horrible experience working there to say the least.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Hard to please

I have worked in the business for almost 4 years. I have not had the opportunity to advance and do not get rewarded for hard work. The people that you work with are so nice that it makes you stay in the job but management is poor and unstable and hours and terrible.
Pros
Lovely Work Colleagues
Cons
Very short hours

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.
Pros
Double pay bank holidays
Cons
Management are bullies.

During my time at Argos I found that for the most part their management to be friendly and courteous . Argos was a great place to work. The only draw back was the 6 hour contract.

I got on well with all members of staff. I learned how to deal with customers in a polite and positive manner. The more experienced members of staff were very helpful, especially in the first few weeks of my employment, offering advice and helping me feel at ease in my new job. The management were great to work for and, like the rest of the staff, worked hard for the company.
