I enjoyed my time working in Iceland foods Ltd. The staff were always very welcoming and kind. I learned a great deal about customer relations as well as cash management.

The manager in the Fermoy branch treats all staff poorly. Is incredibly sexist and does not care for the employees. They have given everyone a horrible time. All staff are lovely and good workers but the manager is atrocious. They push their staff into doing things that they are not comfortable with even after stating they are not, such as opening/closing the shop when they are only a sales assistant or liftng things that the employee find too heavy, among other things. Overall, I found this place very stressful to work in for the sole purpose of the manager.
Pros
Job is steady paced, employee's are friendly
Cons
Manager is difficult to work with, wages are not great

If you like being underpaid for actual hours worked, then this job is for you. Multitasking abilities required, at all times!!
Breaks are a joke.

Favouritism, from management, given to "those who comlpy" with them, and good luck to you if you don't!!!
Pros
Days off
Cons
Days in

Good job to start and gain experience but not make a career, low pay long hours and expect an awful amount of work for little money. But good job if your just starting out

Nothing to say. Useless head office. Terrible people management, your expendible in there eyes so they will take advantage. You are just a number to them and they let you know it. Hope the company falls to the ground with Brexit.

Started in Iceland when it first opened in Wexford. The management is a joke,even customers complained to me about the lack of professionalism. The hours were not great. You would get 16 hours a week, broken up.
Pros
Weekly pay. Discount.
Cons
Poor management. Not enough hours.

unrealistic emount of deliverys you are expected to start 45 minutes early witch is unpaid and expect you not take your full dinner brake, you got to come back every 2 hours to load your van as you are only out for the 2 hour window and then have to rush back to load up for the next window they call it pitstops, and on top of that they will rip you off and take you off the rota after you worked the shift so you dont get paid, A day of a icelands driver would be loading your van and doing about 10-15 drops then come back to unload and would do this 4 times a day, so basicly got to do like 50 drops a day and also load your van 4 times a day, it is all in newport witch is very boring as your always stuck in traffic newport is horrible to deliver to, you are constantly in a rush with the emount of work that they drop on you, its a bad job and a bad company to work for, it is the worst home delivery service to work for, plus they did not pay me, hours are unsocialble they just update them online and put you in to work any rubbish shift no contracted you cant plan anything would defo avoid this job. Its Way more relaxed with other supermarket delivery jobs.
Pros
The happy feeling you get when you hand in your notice
Cons
Job gives you depression and they refuse to pay you

Loved working for Iceland, I built my knowledge up to get to being in charge of orders for the grocery department, was instrumental in preventing shrinkage and therefore contributing to store KPI's

Hours not guaranteed. Shifts constantly changing. Wages not always correct.
