Not good place to work sometimes you overwork for very little pay the place I was in was in Tallaght cookstown not a good spot, My advice to you is to stay there for a short while, while your looking for something elles no longer then 3 months the place is badly paid there staf espcially if your angncey is not a nightmare somethimes.

Decent days work for decent days pay
Paid training paid breaks

It is hard work but if you are used to work it shouldn't be a shock to you.

I worked there 5 years and you get pay increases yearly.


I was always treated fairly. Great mix of people.
Pros
Good pay for warehouse work, stable hours, loads of overtime.
Cons
Open 24/7

We were using bogeys and pick pallets and place products at righ store. Menagers were ok and fair and because of work culture i advance my knowledge of english.
Hardest part was cold (5 decreese or less all day).

Most enjoyable part was hanging with rest of collegaues.

This shop is all over the place, high rate of staff turnover and management changes frequently. It is hard to adjust to this and your opinions or problems are never listened to. The pay is good and the staff are all very nice and friendly.

You work terribly hard for 10 hours a day for Penny's, and then after you brake your back for these criminals they get their little line managers to tell their staff that they are not doing enough. They humiliate you inside the warehouse and also try to manipulate you into downloading WhatsApp so they can boss you around and bully you on your days off. Simple no respect for the staff.

To cut a long story short the place is an absolute joke. Slave drivers of managers who are the most useless human beings on this planet. Work for 10.46 an hour. Work like an Olympic donkey to get your full bonus at the end of the week. Work every Sunday morning at 6am or 7am. Watch the managers buddy boys on the same contract as you pick the same pallet for 2 hours while your after picking 10 pallets of apples. The full-time workers are hilarious. Stay away 😂

Rude management terrible to work with
Staff nice enough

Managers in ballymun shop absolute horrible to work with

Keep putting you on different jobs when you were just getting used to one area they moved you

Then after the 6 weeks review they tell you your not working well as part of a team !!!!

I joined in early summer hoping it would be a great job. I soon realised that it isn't and I didn t receive my training within the time period and was made work on the floor before I was trained. The management are useless and they don't care about the floor staff. The only good thing about it is that it's good for a cv and the subsidised dinners

Heavy work pays too little.
Contempt of employees by line managers and depot managers.

All trainings are equally paid and the obligations towards work are higher

The management is great and the job is easy enough to do. But low pay. It's very hard for others to progress at this place. It's flexible for students like myself.

I worked there in Kilcock for a year on the night shift. Was getting paid 9.50 an hour at the time. It was back breaking work. The pick rate was unrealistic. Accidents were quite common in there as people are racing around in there trying to hit the pick rate. Had alot of issues with the agency. They were rude and ignorant to deal with. Alot of rats in there who would report people for minor things just so they could climb up the ladder. You'd be paid flat rate for working the weekends. You‘d have team leaders walking around the warehouse making sure nobody is talking making it feel like a prison so moral in there is very low. The high turnover of staff is an indicator of how poor of a job this is. All in all its a terrible job and not good for your mental health. Its time the health and safety authority’s investigated this company and other warehouses like it. Its not good enough in this day and age.
