Great company, excellent team
Deli Assistant (Current Employee) –  Tralee, County Kerry13 November 2019
Corrib Oil is a face paced working environment that is very grateful and rewarding to its customers and employees. All staff and management are friendly and conscientious. The days fly by as they are busy and they give all staff a food allowance for delicious food. There are also great prospects for advancement within the company and managers are extremely helpful especially with the rota. Great company and work environment in general.

Excellent!
Chopped (Current Employee) –  Tralee, County Kerry13 November 2019
I have been working in Corrib Oil in Tralee for the past year as a Deli Assistant behind chopped. When I started I was completely clueless and received tones of help from all management inside there. Brilliant place to work for along side a brilliant team. Never had any problems and if I had all have been seen too. Would totally recommend working for this company it gives you many of opportunities and has really brought me out as a person in the past year.

Poor management
Deli Assistant (Former Employee) –  Westport, County Mayo16 September 2019
I enjoyed the actual work in the deli: customers were great to deal with 99% of the time, coworkers were decent and easy to get on with, and the days go quick as you're always kept busy.
The deli manager is an absolute disgrace in this particular location however. She seemed to think there was nothing wrong with shouting and roaring at you in front of customers, often using bad language. Total coward of a woman who does nothing for the image of this company. If you're a hard worker, you will get more pressure put on you. Meanwhile the lazier workers seem to get away with doing the minimum, and worse, promoted. A shame as I liked working here otherwise. There's a reason why this company has a very high staff turnover. The management in Westport really need to stop driving the good workers out of the place.

NEVER AGAIN. Under constant scrutiny, camera surveillance. 15-20 mins break for 8-10 hours shift

Deli assistant
Deli assistant (Former Employee) –  Westport, County Mayo28 June 2019
Extremely busy work environment, lovely customers, short breaks, on your feet all day, experience cooking new foods..mixture of undervalued staff and overvalued management. Too many bosses! Food area manager hasn't a clue and walks around like he owns the stores. Rota is not far enough in advance that you cannot plan your next week. Constantly called when you are on your day off to cover someone not coming to work. No work/life balance here. Manager was over critical and didn't follow her own "constructive criticism"... Lasted little over 3 months here after thinking a few times of leaving...
Pros
Paid breaks and nice fresh food
Cons
Feels like you have no time off. High staff turnover.

Stay away
Deli Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ballinasloe, County Galway12 September 2018
I worked here for 2 months and everyday was too much, nothing good enough for them especially higher staff, constant complaining on work never good enough, only happy when your breaking your back carrying loads and struggling, all the moaning gets too much to brush off and also bad hours a 4 hour shift is not a days work, you could have 2-3 days one week, the next 5 days, no notice of rota, low staff morale, just don't go near them. Also not guaranteed breaks 2 15 minutes.
Pros
Food
Cons
Unhappy

Busy workplace.
Deli Assistant (Former Employee) –  Galway3 March 2018
A typical day at work would begin at 8 AM and end at 4PM. The day goes very quickly as theres so much to be done. The hardest part of the job is getting all of your set tasks done before the day is out as it is an extremely busy place to work. Most enjoyable part of the job is the hours, very solid, in early out early.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Conflict

Good work environment and friendly co workers.
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) –  Swinford, Co, Mayo6 October 2014
A typical work day was about nine hours long and would vary in days of the week which was moving between full 40 hour weeks and part time no less than 21 hours. I learned how to manage time better and work harder. My co- workers were always very friendly and it was a nice environment to work in. There wasn't really any one part of the job that I found harder than any other.
