Fun place to work, fair pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Dunnes offer a fair wage, good benefits with a discount card and Christmas bonus, all of the managers were nice at least at the one I worked at and they were understanding of time off.

Avoid at all costs

I would avoid working at dunes at all costs. Dealing with constant bullying from managers is not worth your time. HR roster you on 5 days a week despite being "part time". Company culture is terrible.

Pros

20% discount

Cons

Abuse from management

Serious work environment..

Sly ... Unhelpful in general.. their way or the highway.. compulsive continuous dishonesty ... It's your work colleagues who make the day bearable.. manager is approachable

Good

It’s okay but hours can be a bit much when in college, in on weekends a lot which doesn’t allow much of a social life. Management are good and will work with you most of the time

Stay away

Management are horrible.. So short staffed and high employee turnover, red flag! Scheduled for days you’re unavailable or days you’ve booked off, “part time” but scheduled for a 5 day week even after speaking to hr about reducing hours. Employee discount is good but not worth the stress and borderline bullying from management

Fast paced workplace

Very fast paced, easy to never get bored. Very large store so management were not always the easiest to find, but overall would recommend. Not very accommodating to college schedules.

Not the best

The dunnes I worked in had horrible managers and horrible employees. Thr job is go go go, sometimes the new employees get given more jobs than employees that have worked there for years.

It can be a good place to work really comes down to what your managers are like.

Had no issues myself when I was there. Very straightforward work and hours were fine for me at the time. Others mention it being toxic but really comes down to what management is like in the store you're in as the ones I had in tipp town were A1.

Alright to work in

Typical day consists of unpacking delivery and backstock and facing off unless you are placed on the cashier register, learned how to use a pallet truck. Management was alright but could have done more work on the shop floor. Workplace was friendly but it was everyone for themselves no team work as the management kept preaching. Hardest part was being alone unpacking and facing off your lane with barely any help given.

Pros

20% off discount for employees, Friendly Workplace, Good Pay

Cons

Late Deliveries at times, Management doing minimal on the shop floor

Great for student

Worked here while at college in Galway. They’re pretty flexible with hours. The work is handy and your fellow staff are sound. Managers can have an ego complex (some, not all). Good hourly wage if you’re there a few years. A decent place to work overall.

hours not flexible for student

managers expect students to be able to work 4/5 days a week. money is good but they expect you to miss university to go to work. bad job for a student,

No

Just awful management so stuck for staff getting all these extra hours and rostering you for days you requested off or already told them you cant work.

Pros

Christmas Vouchers & 20% Employee Discount

Cons

Long hours, Random last second shift swaps

Toxic environment

No work/life balance. If you asked for a day off with months in advance you wouldn’t be guaranteed it. The job itself is not bad at all as you are kept busy most of the time but the managers are horrible and make you feel miserable and under pressured. They have no time for you if you make any sort of mistake. The pay is good but not enough for what you have deal with.
