No appreciation of staff completely customer focused company.


Go against management and they'll find a way to get rid of you.


Staff safety constantly put at risk

A company run by monkeys. Boylesports exists only to serve hordes of mindless mud people. This company contributes nothing to society, it's only use being that it acts as a central hub for junkies and soon to be corpses. The money is pitiful. The benefits are none. The hours are inhuman. I would rather eat buckets of paint while being beat with a hurley for 13 hours a day than sit in a Boylesports shop and have to deal with the fat morons than infest this abyss of despair and hatred. Free coffee all the same.
Pros
Met some good people within the staff.
Cons
A cons list would be longer than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Fun, exciting, fast paced but can be stressful in certain situations. Management were ok but run very strictly as should be expected. Was always fun going into work and was never the same experiences every day. Improved my sporting knowledge immensely and customer relations were fantastic

Cons
Pressure

Enjoyable work environment, dealing with sports tasks on a daily basis. It involved dealing with daily tasks individually and on a team basis. Management allocated your tasks daily, and if or when required I would do additional tasks if someone was out sick or someone else needed a hand on their work.
Pros
bonuses
Cons
some late nights

Tesco was great to work for at 16, I made so many friends and as it was my first real job, it was a great place to learn interpersonal skills and customer services. Tesco also had great get togethers for staff, I was on the Tesco's ladies football team and we won 3 years in a row, it was so much fun.
Pros
Social events and great all round people
Cons
none

I learnt the skills of keeping a garden tidy and how to handle the tools correctly.
The management i got on very well with and she was very pleased.

The hardest part was trying to do it in the lasing rain and strong winds.

The most part i enjoyed was planting and weeding.

hours were flexible but sometimes long (up to 13 hrs).
fast thinking and a high level of concentration was needed.

co-workers were all very friendly and we all got on great and went on staff nights out together. the hardest part of the job was dealing with angry customers which were plentiful due to the nature of the bussiness.
Pros
flexible rota

I enjoyed working in the betting shop as i have a very keen interest in sports i was lucky as i got on with all my co-workers.I went straight from school into the job and believe it has giving me great life experience.The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that more or less every bet was sports related because i have a huge interest is sports.My least favorite part of the job was working evenings as you wouldn't leave work till nearly 10.00pm.

I love working with Boylesports. Boylesports are a young, fast paced, exciting and provide an abundance of opportunity for self growth and progression. I usually work three twelve hour shifts and a short day, at least 40 hours every week. I work 9.30-9.30 and 8.30-9.30 on Saturdays, 10.00-6.00 on Sundays. We get an hour break when working the full day and 30 minutes when not working 12 hours or more, we do not get paid for our breaks.
The hardest part is keeping our customers service standards while adhering to company procedures.

The hardest part is the time you are away from your kids eg. Saturdays I leave the house at 8am and I don't home until 10pm.
Pros
Great opportunities
Cons
Long unsociable hours and high pressure fast moving and stressful
