Terrible work life balance.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Drogheda, County Louth10 October 2019
Terrible company to work for. You get treated like a slave, as management we work more than anyone in the shop. That includes packing out delivery and working tills, you will spend half your time working tills and packing.

Only ok
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) –  County Kerry28 September 2019
Hours can be a bit all over the place. There’s always a problem with higher up management. It’s a nice place to work people wise. Either get early starts or late finishes.

Not worth it
Shop Assistant (Current Employee) –  County Dublin3 September 2019
Dealz as a whole is not worth the money they pay. Depending on what shop your in the staff may make the job easier or better for you but the role isn’t worth the pay. Feels like your constantly in work and still have no money. Most management are horrible two faced only care about themselves. Not they’re staff. At the end of the day your only a number to them and easily replaced. If not in college or if you don’t have a child then it’s not worth the hours

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Castlebar, County Mayo20 August 2019
Terrible pay, they want you to try and get people to buy stuff that they don’t want and it’s not a secure job. It’s very monotonous and a lot of the customers think it’s okay to be rude to you because it’s a low paid job.

dont do it to yourself
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Somewhere in Dublin15 August 2019
This company are reactive never proactive they set unrealistic targets for management with the lower base duty managers put under huge pressure to complete tasks that their pay grade does not warrant.
With the parent company pound land and the senior management having no idea how to run a store except on a spreadsheet think that they know it all and continuously change things and expect stores to implement 100% yesterday.
When things are not met to standards they do not look at things realistically it's just your fault and the senior management do nothing to back up their stores and have very short memories when things are not going their way.
The colleagues that you work with are on basic wage and work hard but are made feel just as under appreciated as the stores managers by these gestapo style people who think that a summary on a piece of paper by some genius in an office is how a store operates.
I have had some really good people work with me that literally feel like dirt that are on a roller coaster of emotion because of these people & lack of management support outside of the our management team.
You bleed for your store & your colleagues do too just to be knocked down on a regular basis that saps your moral and the moral of your team which makes you wonder why you do it at all.
Structure in stores change more than the weather and then again & again because some person has a brainwave thats going to reinvent things so it's easier but it never does & then it happens over and over.
Support office is non existent, hiring people takes up to 4 weeks, payroll is
  more... a joke, maintainance support is the funniest joke ever and when you feel passionate about something and raise your voice all of a sudden your the problem & not the company.
When you build good teams in colleagues and managers they get stolen from you for other stores that have managers that brown nose their way into their area mangers eyes.
In a nutshell the company is a joke who care nothing for there employees.

Pros
Some of the hard working lower level managers & colleagues you work with

Horrible
Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Stillorgan, County Dublin26 July 2019
Awful place to work. No support in the company. Forced to work crazy hours without the correct breaks in between.
High expectations but no direction or help in achieving them and punished when not done correctly.
Horrible management and staff. Would not recommend working here at all.

Cohesive team effort everyday.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Naas, County Kildare4 July 2019
Relatively easy to get along with everyone, staff were friendly and welcoming and management was good and very clear. Basic tasks such as serving customers at the tills and restocking shelves to cleaning shelves and floors and throwing away storage boxes. Hours varied but usually in between 4 to 8 hours per day and shifts were well balanced.

Don't work here
Duty Manager (Former Employee) –  Fonthill Retail Park, County Dublin2 June 2019
Absolute shocking place to work... Ridiculous company that doesn't care about its employees... Area/regional managers don't even acknowledge staff walking through the store unless they are management! Head office never deal with complaints and staff are never paid properly or on time!! Such a complete mess of a company! I would steer clear of jobs with this company, as a former duty manager please avoid
Pros
Got another job from the experience.
Cons
Underpaid.. Not paid on time.. Careless.. Under appreciated.

Difficult and negative business to work for!
Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin2 May 2019
Not a great business to work for, only 4 weeks new manager training then straight into a shop, limited support from area management/head office . Issues in their payroll department caused by people leaving mean they don’t pay their managers/staff correctly (overtaxing staff, not paying pay rises, change of position increases). Poor hours, being asked to come in on your day off with only a few hours notice. Stressful, challenging environment, use of a store labour model means not enough hours given to keep a store in effective order (deliveries,housekeeping) . High turnover of staff,store management and area management. No extra pay for Sunday’s and issues claiming back days owed/in lieu from bank holidays,overtime,etc.
Pros
Free coffee and tea!!
Cons
Long unsociable hours, poor training and job guidance, poor support given from HR/payroll

Low Hours poor pay
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Cork10 January 2019
Staff were constantly fighting for hours. Only way to consistently get more than 20 hours a week is to be put on deliveries, which necessitate a 04:15 start in the morning.

The staff make the job tolerable.
Management are extremely poor. They seem clueless most of the time and can treat staff poorly with little to no consequences

A really bad job.
Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Letterkenny, County Donegal23 November 2018
Just a really bad job all round. Hard work and bad pay. 25 hours spread over 5 days just means a bad pat packet for full weeks work. Good chance of promotion from within but still bad money and unsocial hours for management.
Pros
Other staff were nice people
Cons
Pay, hours, workload

Worst job ever
Floor Staff (Current Employee) –  Drogheda m1 retail pk26 July 2018
This is the most unhealthy environment to work in. In the winter the store is unbearably freezing to the point were staff are constantly unwell. In the summer, because of no air conditioning the heat is that bad that concentration is lost and you can feel weak. The store manager is a (indeed wont let me use the word i want to use) waster and extremely unprofessional. The rest of the management team are bearable but they have their favourites who get the most hours and best days off. The pay is low and you dont get many hours. Would not suit anyone looking for full time work. If it wasnt for the fear of being unemployed i would be long gone, cannot wait to get out of this place
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to mention

Empresa que lhe dá oportunidades de crescimento, equipe maravilhosa.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dublin15 June 2018
Empresa dinâmica que lhe dá muitas oportunidades de crescimento, aprendi bastante com meus gerentes. Trabalho dinâmico, sempre passando por diferentes áreas. Gerência que respeita o colaborador. Ambiente de trabalho agradável. Me deram oportunidade de trabalhar na empresa quando ainda estava aprendendo o idioma, sou eternamente grata. A parte ruim é que havia uma rotatividade muito grande de gerentes, então o estilo de trabalho mudava sempre.
Pros
Equipe unida e empresa dinâmica
Cons
Não fornece refeições

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Dublin3 June 2018
Great place to work if your staff but as a manager it’s a lot harder money doesn’t resemble the work load and stress, never a full management team and they still expect the same workload and standards. Never get positive feedback from business managers.
Pros
Good part time job
Cons
Long days, pay, high turnover of management and staff
