Absolute disgrace to work for. Poor management very derogatory, condescending and rude, lack of communication, favoritism, let a lot of employees go after one year, lack of canteen cleanliness. A lot of employees sit on iPads in the canteen during working hours and this leaves no seats for employees on lunch.
Pros
None

Working in dunnes stores starts off great every1 of the managers are nice to you and then it changes you are expected to do alot while the managers do nothing but walk around all day no matter how much work you have to do you are expected to do it quick.
Pros

Cons
You are just a number, Hr manager doesn't care about staff and treated like you are back in school again, not a good place to work.

Although the salary is good, working over 20 hours while full time in college is not worth it along with a manager who practically bullied some workers
Pros
Salary for a student
Cons
Authoritarian Management

Refused my redundancy pay after 15 years service, HR is non existent. Senior management have SERIOUS chip on their shoulder. Was cut from 39 hours a week to little more than 20 with no notice. I'm loathed to spend any money in there, unless it's an absolute emergency
Pros
Staff discount, thats about it
Cons
Too many to mention

Managers on a power trip, many aspects of the contract ignored, work culture reminds me of being back in secondary school. HR manager totally unapproachable.

Job was fast paced, fellow co workers were great help, only problem was the managers which bully staff. Three managers over you asking you to do different things at the same time expected to be done quicker than possible.

Desde el comienzo de mí día laboral los encargados de el shop floor nos dan las instrucciones pertinentes
.

Por ejemplo si tenemos delivery (entrega) de los proveedores, o si tenemos que cambiar/mover diferentes stands por promociones pactadas con ciertas empresas.


La cultura es de respeto, cooperación y sobre todo compañerismo, desde la gerencia hasta los subordinados.


Lo más difícil ha sido en fechas navideñas, pero al ver que el personal estaba apretado tomaron la decisión desde gerencia de contratar personal temporal. En consecuencia la empresa ha podido surtir los productos a la demanda elevada correspondiente de aquel momento.



Lo que más me ha gustado es el aprender día a día, la gestión de tiempo, la elaboración de los plantigramas para una mejor distribución de los productos para mayor llegada al cliente, la inteligencia detrás de cada oferta/ promoción semanal, incluyendo la logistica de los mismos.



Sin dejar de lado la utilización del inglés en el día a día, ya sea formal e informal.

You are kept moving at all times, staff are good to work with as are most of store level management. Communication can be slow between higher managemnet and individual stores. Trying to balance the shifts with home life is the most challanging part of working with Dunnes. The most rewarding part, besides making friends with staff and managment, is there is a valley of skills and knowledge to gain from the various departments if you put in the effort to find it.

Before i started in Dunnes i was told by friends that dunnes stores was a good place to work, pay well and its worth applying for a job which i did in Dunnes Stores Mallow and i got the job in the grocery department.I later regreted this.i worked there for a couple of years and every day was a struggle.Not because of work or staff who were very nice but because of certain management .They/He was a bully and didnt treat right.I cried most days coming coming in becaise of it .it was horrible.thankfully i left but i know there is some other staff that are going through what i went through .
Hopefully they will see sense and leave
