Sales Assistant (Former Employee) - Tallaght, County Dublin
The staff in B&Q tallaght are more worried about their colleagues personal lives than customers or sales. Managers have had affairs with sales assistant, a lot of the staff seem to be having flings with each other and then gossip about it while at work. They're are only a handful of employees in this store that are there to work, help customers and make sales. Never worked anywhere like this store before. So if that's what your into apply here if not avoid I'm sure you'll find a nicer store.

Showroom Sales Assistant (Current Employee) - Liffey Valley Centre, County Dublin
The Liffey Branch has over 100 staff. There is a great sense of comradery in the branch. There are lots of great people to meet and you will make a lot of great friends for life.
The job can be quite demanding physically. There is a constant influx of customers and the footfall on the weekends is borderline insanity.

Being good with your hands is not essential but is a great help as new displays for products are always required.

The managers are fantastic and very supportive, but only if you show that you are a good worker and pull your weight.

Overall I would highly recommend B&Q Part-Time if you're in college or have separate responsibilities.

Full time there is very little room for progression and it takes quite some time to progress. In my opinion full time at this company is a dead end.
Pros
Great Team Environment.
Cons
Dead End Job.
