Face paced environment that can be stressful but then overall experience and team was comfortable place to work. I would recommend it for someone starting off in employment or college students as it can help contribute towards fees .
No Sunday pay increases
Don't go looking for anything special. You will not be looked after and have difficulty getting any holidays as you can book them well in advance and still be put on rota for when time was requested off. If you want to keep your mental health Avoid at all costs as you will be torn down and given out to for everything, including for stuff out of your control or even when you're not in but if you try to defend yourself will get given out to.
It's a wage
I have worked in three different stores two were great to work in one store I would not recommend is howth owner never there very little support from him. In Finglas owner always there and willing to listen to you if u have a problem always there to approach and always there to help you in progressing owner in Finglas best boss to have would recommend this store howth never
Great place to work Finglas
No cons from Finglas howth store a joke
Working with Centra has allowed me to gain many different skills and learn qualities I never knew I had. Centra is a very positive part time Job to begin your carrier. I am currently in college and work during weekends and holidays and it allows me to study for my degree while making money for myself. I love working with both my fellow staff members and most importantly the public. A big part I love about my job is being able to interact and meet new people daily, provide a great shopping experience for each customer and also being able to help with any problems a customer may have. Over all working with Centra is a great job and I enjoy my time even more each day I work.
Team work skills
Working in Centra can have both pros and cons. I do feel that the area associated with management could be improved I.e. a more fair and approachable team of management in which will make the employees feel more relaxed within the workplace.
Was paid well under minimum wage and had to fight for my money, owner treated us like dirt and had no respect for anyone, made me scrub her toilets every week in my deli uniform ,fast employee turnover. Would not recommend.
Made nice friends
Worked to the bone, money taken from you every week with no explanation, very dangerous working conditions, having to deal with drunk and drugged up people late at night with no security, no benefits, long hours, nice coworkers but supervisors were lazy and not helpful
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
staff & management worked well together, I loved the social aspect of meeting people, it was a lovely environment to work in for staff and customers were a joy to meet. when I wasnt serving customers there was merchandising, cleaning, dusting and checking stock for short dates.
part-time hours were suitable
shop closing down
I have not the opportunity yet to get know with the other employees but the knowledge I had learnt was not difficult but detailed so you have to pay attention at any moment and be prepare to some not expected circumstances that the custumers or the store place may have ones a while.
