Fun work place

Great management and overall fun place to work. Can get stressful at times due to lack of staff but never anything too strenuous. Good starting wage compared to other retail companies.

Toxic and excluding workplace

I worked in the Swords branch and it was a toxic environment. The current store manager looks down on everyone and makes snide remarks to staff. They make you feel incapable of doing your job. The long shifts prevent you from having any work life balance as they open until 9pm nearly every day of the week. It was the worst retail store I have ever worked in.

Poor Management and HR

Worked there for 3 years with promises of advancement within the shop/company and nothing to show for it. Poor communication throughout and MAJOR lack of management, and when there was some she was a genuine bully. No respect of staff from not only management but Head Office rules which was made more apparent with Covid. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Just becomes more toxic the longer your there and takes a major toll on mental health!

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long Hours, poor management, no respect, no job advancement

Poor management

Poor management who constantly insist there right even when their not, unfair balance of work as you could be cleaning 6 sections while the other person who's good friends with the manager stands and chats. Slowly became a more toxic Enviroment throughout the number of years I worked there. Your forced to stop shop lifters even though its not in your contract, barely able to give contracted hours and sometimes don't. Can cut hours after routine with no notice to force you put of the company. Avoid homestore and more at all costs, you'll either be forced to stand on the door in the freezing cold or be made fit 6 hours work in to four

Pros

Absolutely nothing

Cons

Long hours, unfair management and wage, too much workload and no reasoning with managers
