Assistant Manager in Dublin, County Dublin
on 26 April 2022
Fast Paced
Good pay, work environment depends on store and senior managers in the store, lots of changes happening and not always clearly communicated. Overall okay but the hours are far too long

Slow placed not much progressin
Good for a part time student , don’t pay enough always short staffed and asked to come on days off. Managers haven’t a clue high turnover rate would not stay long term

Great workplace overall
Good place to work with good opportunities for progression, sometimes the hours don't really allow for you to do much with the rest of the day so if you're doing full time hours it can feel like you're too tired to do anything on your days off

Zero appreciation or support
every day you are understaffed, no support from store managers or HR. no good or hard work goes noticed or appreciated by store managers who are so out of touch with the reality of day to day running of the store. head office treat new managers so badly, constantly extending temporary contracts to the point that you can be a manager for 2+ years and still not be given a permanent contract. salary is nowhere near high enough for the work you are expected to do, although it is much higher than managers at other companies. hours are extremely unsociable you will probably work 50 hour weeks most of the time. it’s a shame because the staff are for the most part so hard working and lovely, but they too are under appreciated by the company- ESPECIALLY if you are part time staff.
