Always evolving, fast paced family business
It's great to be part of a team in James whelan butchers who would all go the extra mile to help one and other. The business has a great family feel to it and is constantly evolving and looking for ways to do things better. Hard work is rewarded with opportunities to get on for anyone who has the desire to climb the ladder no matter what your background is.

Tough work
Place will drain you Higher ups are so disconnected with there shops and store managers Basically half the staff in some shops doing 45hrs a week you would think is enough but your doing double the work and there is only half the staff Standards get lost as you never have enough staff leads to angry staff members,arguments,resentment,favouritism among staff,favouritism with shops so if your shop struggles and your not in this bracket of favouritism you will be forgotten about,hiring staff in management positions who basically only come in and make it worse as they aren't willing to learn all aspects of the business and think they are better then others,I could go on all day but don't believe the speech they spin at the interview Only plus there was a good few who would want the best for you but it was rare
Senior butcher in Dublin

Not the best place to learn to be a butcher
At the start it was brilliant but as time wore on you got sucked into the drama that goes on every day. All the staff were brilliant but as in each job the higher ups are let’s say not the best people to deal with. People who have worked there will know what I mean. The culture portrayed is family. Could nt be further from the truth. No one looks out for each other. It’s all he said or she said. Totally two faced environment which is actually encouraged by the suits.
Deli Assistant in Clonmel, County Tipperary

One Big Family
Had a great time working here in the deli side of the operation which was constantly busy but the work never got to be too much as we worked well as a team from upper management right down through the ranks. When ever I needed help or any extra training it was never an issue to ask senior staff. Absolutely blown away by the high standard of the product and the attention to detail was like no other.
