Arvato is a great company to start your career. You have the chance to learn how to perform a wide range of different projects, and you can work very close to some of the biggest tech companies in Dublin. Managers are young, nice, and friendly. The average age of employees is around 28 years old. Unfortunately the career possibilities are very limited, the turnover is big, and the salaries are definitely not the highest in Dublin. But if you're motivated to get into the digital world, and work in customer-care or digital marketing, then Arvato is a good company, KPIs are more than manageable, and they support you through your learning process.
Unfortunately, it's one of the only ways for people living abroad to start an office career in Ireland. It's modern age slavery with a lot of racism and other elements to get you depressed or anxious. If you protect yourself from all this hard stuff you will survive and worth it because you can get a very nice job with the experience you had in Arvato.

Supervisors don't have the knowledge to hire the right people so you would suffer greatly everyday. Previous agents' poor performance is somehow your fault. And because supervisors aren't educated and don't know what they are doing, you would find it hard to communicate with your colleagues as they speak terrible English... Also you would feel peer pressure attending meaningless events and give donations every time someone has their birthday or quits their job. Forced events and donations are only for supervisors' satisfaction. These should be optional, not mandatory but they don't realise how people secretly dislike it.
There are loads of gossipers who mind other people's business all the time as well.
