From my experience staff were fun and enjoyable management was poor from the board down to shop manager, would still recommend as a first time job as it offers valuable learning experiences

I worked at Card Factory in Dun Laoghaire for almost 2 years and, at first, it was incredible. After the old manager left it became so much worse. The new manager was lovely at first but quickly became lazy. Constantly had staff in the stock room rather than on the shop floor. Made staff do everything while he sat and watched then took all the praise for it all. The management above him was even worse. Not long after i started in the company the store was robbed and all of my belongings were taken from my locker. Nothing was done to help me :/ If you’re okay with being walked all over then they’ll be great to you at card factory.
Pros
Very flexible hours
Cons
Poor management, low wages

Bright vibrant shops , lovely customers great product, 4 and 8 hour contracts are all this store offer, when it’s busy you have to be available for long hours due to too few employees, when it’s quiet they cut your hours and only roster contract hours, company ethos very poor towards employees. They promise great management advancement if you commit to being a key holder but they only pay extra for this when the managers not there on her day off. So you do it the rest of the week for no extra!! Free training lol. This uk company run the business on a shoe string of part time contracts, poor working conditions with the manager the only staff member with a 40 hour contract and performance bonus. Minimum wage to multitask, Employee burn out, huge turn over of staff due to bad working conditions and lack of company respect. Budget by name, budget by nature
Pros
Great products
Cons
4 or 8 hour contracts

It was not a great place to work. The managers often took a long time to put the roster up. Managers constantly kept leaving the job because they hated it. Employees get absolutely no employee benefits apart from a 20% discount. I would not recommend working here to anyone.
Cons
Terrible management and no Christmas bonus or any type of bonus.
