If I had been there long enough, I would have made a case against the company for bullying and abuse in the work place. My 'Manager ' had no experience in Retail, and even broke some workplace safety laws. Blocking fire exit doors with stacks of pallets etc. Also she was unable to make basic calculations of individuals work hours and an inability to relate basic instruction
Pros
The customers and colleagues
Cons
The management

Staff were great including shop manager and the workdays could be fun as a result, higher up managers didn't appreciate staff much though and there was little incentives as senior staff received same salary as new staff members.

In my first three months as a sales representative for Acme Rocket Company, I have met and exceeded new hire expectations for sales performance. While I was informed during the hiring process that it usually takes up to three months for new hires to start achieving their monthly revenue targets, I was able to meet and exceed my personal revenue target. The biggest factor in my success has been my attention to detail and responsiveness throughout the sales process.

Sometimes when working with the public you come in to some situations I was always cautious about this but I learned all you can do is make sure the customer is happy leaving the store and try to resolve the situation. I love working with the public.

Hard to work for the company but they do transfer you to different county if you move. Which is good for students that want to go to college in a different county.

When working in a company such as the likes of Eurogeneral Ltd., one must consider the neccesities in terms of skills and quality that is required to work in an average job. in the case of the ordinary minimum wage employee, the job is generally loading and unloading stock, checking customers at the till, facing off products as well as guranteeing complete customer satisfaction.

A good place to work overall as a store assistant, friendly work environment. A versatile and fast-paced daily work routine, with emphasis on strong merchandising, presentation and customer service.

Well for starters you can never plan ahead .. you get a weekly time sheet that comes out on a Friday but the working week starts on saterday so you never know until Friday eve if your working saterday or not. It's also a MESS I traveled to a few eurogiants in cork to cover sick days and every one of them was the same! Management is.. fine if you have an okay area manager. I loved the team I worked with and were still friends to this day so that's a pro.

Management is actually appalling they don't care about welfare of employees. I worked here for 3 months as part of a summer job and never once did any management give me an ounce of praise. I have a learning disability and it seems like I was singled out because of it. They punish you for showing initiative you need to follow exactly what they say and your instantly reprimanded for not doing so. Management sits in the office while your out on the floor on your own this makes them very unapproachable. Aside from management the job did have its fair share of challenges such as helping customers find items on the shelves, and I found the "face off" to be particularly challenging took me a few weeks to get into it. Dealing with customers who are short with you and spill out all their change on the counter for you to count are also particularly challenging. However the job is also extremely rewarding there's no better feeling than a customer appreciating you and the work you have done for them. They may be few and far in between but its always worth it
Pros
Lunch breaks are an hour Staff themselves are friendly
Cons
Extremely poor management No guarentee of working from one week to the next

The company is very up and down. The store you work at will tell you what you need to know about the company some store have great staff and basically run them self. Other store are falling apart because of management using their power to control you. The wage for a supervisor and assistant manager should be higher especially in busy stores.
Pros
Working hours are good.
Cons
To many items that are taking up space.

I have had soo much fun working here the past 4 weeks of work experience. I stacked shelves and assisted customers needs around the shop. Management was great, both managers were really friendly. The shop is hard working and fast pace which is what I like. Lunch time was long enough and hours were great. The staff were also very kind and assisting, and felt like I was really part of the staff crew.
Pros
Lunch. Management. Staff. Hours.
Cons
None
