A very unhappy place to work

I applied for a job here as it was always seen as the place to shop/eat. The truth is it's run really badly by a passive agressive management team. created an air of distrust and general unhappiness amongst the team. it's a shame because i got to work with really nice people but most just leave after a short time.

poor workplace

I worked here for a few months. it was not a nice athmosfer for me and others. the main manager for whole company was very critical and spoke badly to staff. and we got no support from hr manager. Lots of people left at same time. they are always looking for people to work too.

Not a great workplace

Huge turnover of staff. I lasted 3 months. Others lasted a lot less so which is a pity because there was a really nice team. Not a great culture from the senior management and poor HR support.

Wonderful staff, not competitive pay

I worked in Fallon and Byrne on Exchequer Street over Christmas and it was by far the friendliest work environment I've ever experienced. All the staff, including management, were lovely, co-operative, and understanding. They were always very accommodating for time off. You often get to sample or take home food that is about to expire or can't be sold for aesthetic reasons. The only downside is the pay, which was €10.40 an hour for seasonal staff, which is lower than most other grocery stores in Dublin. The building is also quite cold and the staff room/bathrooms are up 4 flights of stairs with no lift. However the amazing workplace atmosphere made up for it and I would definitely apply to work here again in the future.

Would not recommend

During my time at fallon, i received no formal training and everyone just expects you to know everything. The work environment is not ideal and I would not recommend this to people.P.S. The management is highly inefficient and you can see that because everyone ends up leaving this job in a month!

Pros

You get 'perks'! Basically expired products that they cannot sell, you can take home for free.

Hi there,Thank you for your feedback. At Fallon & Byrne we are always interested in hearing about the experiences of our employees both past and present. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us and I would value any insights you might have - please feel free to contact us in confidence at team@fallonandbyrne.com to share your thoughts.We do offer a benefits package which compares favourably with other retailers in Ireland including a generous staff discount, access to an employee assistance programme and discounted meals on shift. I would not necessarily agree that staff turnover is especially high. Many of our people have worked for Fallon & Byrne for a number of years, some staff being with us since we opened in 2006. Wishing you well in your future career,The Fallon & Byrne team

Productive and fun place

Fallon&Byrne has been an amazing place to start my adventure in Ireland. You can find a lot of young people working in the company which makes your job funnier and easier. Working with customers allows you to improve your communication skills as well as gives you the chance to meet very interesting people. If you are a foreign (as I was) it could be difficult at the beginning, but your colleagues will help you for sure.

Pros

Adaptable shift

Cons

Long hours sometimes

Fallon and Byrne is a highly productive and fun place to work.

Fallon and Byrne is a highly productive and fun place to work. A multilayered business structure that encompasses enthusiastic officers and staff in the most beautiful layout of the modern New York Style Food Hall Emporium. It's five star Wine Cellar and the Restaurant above the Food-hall attracts some of the most powerful patrons from across the World and all walks of life, ensuring greater satisfaction of all their needs. The Management Team is exceptional, and I love it there, and always will, especially working with all the lovely Staff and dealing with the Super customers who put smile on our faces daily. But sometimes, we have to take on greater responsibilities and challenges in our lives. A typical day at work helps me discover my best abilities in the service. I learn everyday to become the best on the Management Team.
