Flexible workplace for students

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great place for students as you can take an 8 hour contact but can always do extra hours. Decent enough pay, nice colleagues, customers can be rude sometimes

Poor Work/Life Balance but Easy Work

Very relaxed and stress free work but ultimately long days and increased pressure from staffing issues make it slightly soul destroying with no sense of purpose typical days for a manager will be 12hrs long and for new hires 8hrs from 12:30am-9:30pm, no clear career path even outside the company from experience and opportunities balance from their ability to replace your current role. 5years as deputy manager left looking for somewhere new to start a career.

Testing at times, but rewarding

It's a big company, very secure if you're on the commercial/marketing side of things. Internal politics in a big company like it can be infuriating at times but generally everyone is trusted to get on with their job and if you're not taking the p and you put in the effort you will get rewarded.

I work with good team members and work life balance is great. Everyday at work is fun that is if you try to engage yourself with other members.

Busy, and fun place to work but not long term

Well paid with regular wage reviews and opportunity to progress. But the work is monotonous, busy and hectic with aggressive customers so you need to be thick skinned.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Customers

Trading Dept

Trading department employees looked upon as 2nd class employees. You can offer up as much dominos on Saturdays and drinks on Fridays (which Traders couldn’t avail of because they’ll most likely be working!) but it won’t cover for the really low wages in comparison to competition. When management were challenged on this people were told to ‘go work for the competition so’. Such a lack of understanding and empathy shown. HR for the trading department are a disgrace and allow for all sorts of mismanagement especially at junior level. This is all mirrored in the high turnover rate of staff and many being poached now by competitors offering better pay and conditions.

Pros

Dominos on Saturday (but you’ll be working Saturdays).

Cons

Salary, unsocial hours, long hours, no lunch breaks, unlimited days annual leave is a hoax, Hr.

No breaks

Good job for having time between family life and most of the staff are friendly. Some of the older women managers are lazy. I Would love the job more if I got my breaks. This should be an essential. Everyone needs a break My eyes get tired if I don’t get a break from the computer screen.

Fast-paced and fun place to work

Still a fun place to work but become quite intense working there in recent years. You'll learn a lot if going in there in a junior level as a lot of quite experienced people working there. Decent culture and lots of opportunities in the US market in coming years

Treated like dogs

This company does not value its staff. They work you long hours, they don't give you breaks, they treat you like a criminal if you miss a days work be it genuine or not. Don't work in PP retail !

Pretty good

Power Tower is where you really want to get a job. The retail shops are ok but Power Tower is where the money is. There was only so much more I could do in the shops.

Dont waste your life here

Your just a number working every hr possible with no life, threatening abusive customers which the company do nothing about, because your just a number they can replace. Terrible pay also.

Only a handful of people work on the cool social media stuff...

Almost everybody has seen a funny advert, tweet, snap, insta etc from Paddy Power so they want to be a part of it but this team is quite small so you probably won't be a part of it. If you work on the Customer Service team then you are in for a tough job. You have to resolve a phone call within 90 seconds and you have to resolve an online chat within 3 minutes. There's screens everywhere with the sports on but you won't get a chance to see them due to the volume of calls. You will listen to gambling addicts, you will be called some awful names when you won't give a free bet or a payout. If you work in a non-customer facing role, then you will enjoy working here as the perks are good and the hours are regular.

Decent Job Stressful for Money

Some parts of the job are good but for the stress it's not worth the money. Shop managers can be helpful but sometimes it's too busy to help other times your so bored.

Horrible hours

Most of the staff were great. Not great hours.. never get weekends off unless you request it so you can't plan anything. Very poor work life balance. Management only look after themselves.

Extremely principle oriented yet balanced

Amazing support from management and helping mentors. A superb place to work at! Too many projects simultaneously taken up was a tough task to handle but good management helped the projects through.

Pros

Good cafeteria, good systems, late night cabs and friday beers and pizza

Cons

could overwork occasionally but the teams are good and they will help you out

Fun place to work

The main thing i like about working for Paddy Power is that no day is the same. I have really developed my customer service skills since joining Paddy Power. If you are willing to work hard, it is a great company to progress in. The most enjoyable part of working here is definitely the customers, we get to meet people from every walk of life.

Pros

Working 4 days a week

Cons

Long hours

Pros

irrational customers
