My first part-time job and that too in Dunnes was rewarding.
Every day was a challenge for me.
I learnt tricks and techniques to handle customers, help customers with correct product knowledge.
The most enjoyable part was when I asked them to adjust my shift because my college work started to clash and they understood me.
managers are not very nice.there to long
Think their a above the human race on every level.but what goes up must come down . Hopefully with a big bang.
Staff that are there a life time .. are stuck.And negative and unhappy in work place all due to a hourly rate of pay they have worked up .so can't leave. A minute is gold dust clocking in.Getting off your shirt ?. Over all would not recommend
Hr s are not human beings.
Worked with lots of great people and made many long lasting friendships. Management was strict but fair and was overall polite. Hours were uneven and finding days off for important social/family events was difficult to a degree.
Long lunches, Friendly environment.
Uneven Hours, Lots of late shifts, little work/social life balance.
Dunnes is a very buys franchise and you are always kept busy and on your toes. Although it can be busy it is a great place to work. the pay is very good and I would happily work there again given the opportunity.
People who actually do their job get ignored, while people who jump off tills to hide on the shop floor essentially get promoted to self-service, where they stand around all day unless another member of staff or a customer needs them. That includes slackers working there much less than the people who do their jobs.
I worked there a year, and a girl who joined 6 months after me and had only worked there 3 months got given self-service duty. One evening I was guilted into working later as we were apparently short on staff, and yet after only 5 minutes of being on till, the two girls who were supposed to be working late jumped off and disappeared onto the shop floor. The managers are friendly and approachable, but utterly useless in dealing with these wastes of space and money. You are basically doing several people's jobs for one person's pay. I still remember the day 2 or 3 of us were struggling with the hoard of customers at the tills, wondering where the rest of the staff were, only to turn around and see at least 5 of the girls laughing and chatting away at self-service.
Do not work here unless you are somehow so gold hearted you don't mind being taken advantage of. If you already work here, don't be taken advantage of. If you see other people jump off tills, do the same when you have a chance. You won't get in trouble if the others don't, especially since you're one of the few people who actually do their job, and eventually the managers will be forced to do something. Even if for some stupid, hypocritical reason you do get singled out or threatened with being let - more...
I just loved working in Dunnes Stores, it was very friendly, great atmosphere just an all rounder great place to work, I would highly recommend it and would be absolutely delighted if I got another chance to work there myself
Receiving deliveries, pack up shelves, finish the delivery as much as possible and rest goes in stock room, stock rotation, make sure products are with correct labels and price tags, dates check and reduction sorted, clean up the back store area, helping colleagues.
