Toxic work environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked here for years and gave my all to the job. I let the job get the better of me and it was quite damaging to my mental health. The problem lies at the top of this company, regional and area managers put the pressure on your store, assistant and duty managers and it falls into a domino effect. Majority of area managers and above don't even give staff a second look never mind a polite hello when your employees are the ones keeping the store afloat. Over the years I managed multiple store sections, was good at my job and liked what I did but the pressure and expectations are unbelievable. I along with many other people had conflicting relationships with managers, some were brilliant and few were just not fit to be managers. The pay is shocking for the level of work you do and the hours. The company work around "unsociable hours" so that they can squeeze as much without extra pay. Only good thing is working your way up but despite being pushed to progress, it was never worth it stepping up.

Pros

Career progression

Cons

Bad pay, high expectations, unsociable hours that didn't reflect in wages, bad leadership from top down

don't do it to yourself

worst place on earth, management don't know what they are doing 90% of the time and you will be blamed for their mistakes. staff there is amazing but management culture is the worst I have seen ever.

Very stressful, bad staff morals

Dont expect to have a life outside of work as you won't have labour to help you out but you will be expected to do all the hours under the sun. They will expect perfection with no hour to give out. They have such high expections that it nearly impossible to achieve. Over worked and underpaid, and payroll is just a joke

Good for students

Flexible hours, the pay is not great but would do for a student just seeking a few extra euros. The work is not hard at all. Tills and shelfs are the main tasks.

Pros

Flexible

Cons

Pay is not great

Unnecessary stressful put on sales assistants

Rude management who shouldn’t be allowed be in a role considering how they treat employees. The tasks of the role are actually quite easy it’s just managers attitude toward staff that creates an unnecessary stressful and horrible environment

Pros

None

Cons

No work life balance

Was once happy now im not 😂

Too many people where i work know eachother personally it results with bad management. There is alot of people here who just walked in and got duty manager a month later. You basically have to be related too get somewhere its not nice.

OK for summer work or working part-time as a student

Good first job to get experience. The people I worked with were very sound for the most-part. Upper-management are terrible and really don't care about their staff. Pay-roll often make mistakes with peoples' pay which is a big nuisance as you're paid monthly.Shop was often understaffed and I felt there was little praise and not enough pay for the work I was doing. The shop had no security despite a high rate of theft, making work more stressful for everyone. There is a bit of craic amongst the people I worked with but ultimately I wouldn't recommend this job to people unless you are a student/young person who needs a first job for experience.

OK short term

Grand if you’re 17-20 looking for experience, in college, or looking for a summer job. Not a great place long term. Management are considerate of mental well-being. Not enough closing staff.

Pros

Friendly staff, on site management are friendly and genuinely care about you

Cons

On your feet all day, you must push product focus on customers

Unfair salary and overloaded work leading to exhaustion

While my time at Dealz was questionably decent, there are a lot of things that need to improve within this entire company. Below minimum wage staff (U18s) were paid little to nothing, with no break unless they work over 4 hours in which you got zero time to eat and calm down(15 minutes if you're lucky), by getting shouted at by angry customers for not having specific stock and duty managers for not being quick enough on your first week.Store manager was very friendly and frankly the only member of staff with determination, which is off putting.The store assistants had zero enthusiasm, which makes the store as a whole look unpleasant.Store was always tense as there was a lot of robberies and with no security 99% of the time, we were put at risk for catching robbers and making till staff or store manager aware over headset.Staff talk behind your back a lot, even when you thought you got along with them the most in the store.

Pros

good for students/people looking to start off

Cons

long hours with no breaks

Toxic place to work in

Management are really unprofessional which makes the job really hard to succeed in. Nobody works as a team and the company is all over the place. Would only recommend for a starter as it gives you an idea of what you don't want in a career.

Horrible

Management are rude, unprofessional and unappreciative. They put down there staff and put an unfair amount of pressure of members of staff. Throw you into work without the right amount of training
