Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sligo Town, County Sligo7 August 2018
The amount of work you have to do and targets for the money the pay is a absolute joke. €9.50 is what they get paid and the amount of stuff you do for that is a joke seriously.

Don't even bother asking for a bouns it's another con job. There is also supposed to be commesion on some things oh guess what you will never get it and still expecting too do what they ask

If this job paid a bonus and also paid €15 a hour which would be more acceptable then.
I would say go for it other then that don't waste your time.
Pros
Great staff look out for each other
Cons
The pay is ridiculous surprised anyone wants to work there for it.

High expectations, little reward
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Dublin10 June 2018
Worked for this company for 2 years, couldn't wait to get out in the end. Managers given very little hours to dish out between employees, therefore never had enough staff and if one person was sick the whole place was thrown into turmoil. Pay is just a few cents above minimum wage which is ridiculous for the job your expected to do. High targets and managing contracts and lots of personal details. If one person shines in sales a lot of pressure is put on them to carry the store. If you make a mistake on a contract 20 euro is deducted from your commission, even though you may only actually earn 4 euro in commission for that sale. Very little progression opportunities, often very low staff morale. Only thing that kept me there so long was that all the staff were miserable together. Very high turnover of staff. Definitely not a job for long term.
Pros
Getting to know new technology if your interested
Cons
Low staff, low commission, high deductions from commission

Grand company
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dublin16 April 2018
A good company to work for overall, lots of pleasant people to work with but salary and commission has been lagging behind competitors somewhat recently. Seems to be a company on the up however with many new streamlined processes implemented.
Pros
Almost always more than enough staff working so as to never be to busy
Cons
Can be difficult to deal with people in head office to get issues resolved

check your pay slip
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  waterford31 March 2018
Apart of the corporate governance is the policy of applying emergency tax for the first two months regardless of p45 status. You won't be paid for your first month and expect to be underpaid when you are finally re imbursed
Pros
small discount
Cons
non or under payment of wages

Stay clear
Driver (Former Employee) –  Ireland10 August 2017
Steer clear of knowhow altogether.

No advancement opportunity what so ever.
Overtime constantly forced upon you. (I mean 12-13 hour days 5 days a week?)
Overtime structure is less than poor.
Equality issues across the board.
Extremely poor management.
A fridge is more important than the safety of their employees.
Lunch breaks are rarer than a unicorn.
Pay is far less than fair for the job.
Pros
The work mates are vastly sound. You do have the laugh at times
Cons
Ridiculously long hours, never see family, you're only a number

Poor management
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Ireland10 July 2017
Carphone Warehouse has potential to be a good company to work for however due to poor management and bullying within the company I wouldn't really recommend anyone applying.. There is absolutely no progression in the company, you do not receive any sort of praise or feedback for good work done and you're constantly called and messaged on days off. It also can be extremely boring as there are a lot of quiet days. All the systems need a massive update and management need to start looking after there staff as the turnover is phenomenon.
