nice place to work on some days.

could be a decent place to work at times, although this could chase drastically in the blink of an eye. co workers are at each others throats quite frequently. for example if a worker gave out the wrong order to a customer the other staff will be quick to make sure you feel guilty about it as if its the end of the world. This also surprisingly occurs very frequently. I find its best to just accept the blame and move on even if you know your not to blame. Otherwise it would start a argument and sour the atmosphere. there's also a very tight circle in management where all shift runners and good friends outside of work so they will often act incredibly two faced in a different language in front of you which is just sad lets be real. The job isn't really the hardest thing in the work it can be really simple and easy at times its just the workers that make it a really bad experience. id recommend to just keep to yourself and just do the job you're hired for.

Pros

free lunches

Cons

staff are seriously unfriendly, they could argue about absolutely anything.

Absolutely awful

If you are considering applying just don’t. Terrible pay for terrible work. Highest staff turnover I have ever seen and horrible customers. You get free food though for lunch but you’ll get sick of it soon enough.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Lazy management

Good work place!

Company is good to work for, but the pay is just not great and not many benefits either! Managers are lovely and very helpful to the staff but it’s the money that I disagree with minimum wage with nothing extra, no overtime for Sunday work either. Overall a good place to work, but for the salary ruins it sometimes.

Pros

Happy environment

Cons

Bad salary

This place was tough

The staff were great fun and I'm trauma bonded to all my past colleagues ( and there was many as the staff turnover rate is really high) constantly understaffed and underpaid also monthly pay which is a near death sentence, I was promoted quite quickly only after a few months which helped me getting other jobs but the pay and benefits of the promotion were next to none. 40hour contract that didn't include breaks and no overtime paid. I left in 2019 so hopeful things have changed but I doubt it.

Pros

Staff meal

Cons

Low pay, night shifts, working unpaid if closing wasnt complted on time, high standards

Cons

lack of opportunity to better yourself.

Terrible

Managers would allow bullying to continue despite endless reports on the bullying between managers and employees. Underpaid for the long hours you work. Co- workers would resign because of the bullying . Disgusting atmosphere and behaviour by all members. Gossiping, lying , rumours , etc. Disgraceful attitude by head manager. Racist , demented behaviour shown too.

The most degrading place I've ever worked in

They all spoke about me in their language because I was the only one who was Irish working. They belittled me, they threw away legal documentation that was meant to be sent to head office and mad me so depressed.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Will always tell you what you did wrong and never what you did right.

Fast paced

The job itself is not hard, however it is quite demanding. Hours usually are worked around your own schedule if reasonable. Pay is poor for the level of work included, but a very positive workspace with lots of room to make and correct mistakes.

Disorganised management

Management were unprofessional, often checking up on cameras to ensure employees were carrying out tasks properly. Invasion of privacy and insulting to say the least. Minimum wage, understaffed, long hours.

Pros

Good training, free lunch, good incentives such as employee of the month prizes.

Cons

Bad management, lack of teamwork, long hours with not enough staff
