Life revolves around work
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Letterkenny, County Donegal6 July 2018
Rota comes out 2/3 days in advance - impossible to plan your life around work
Never two days off together so constant feeling of always working
Managment team not supportive at all - speak to staff like they don’t matter
Only get minimum wage if your over 20 - no increase in wage after length of service
Hard to work with managment to have holidays approved
Stupid returns policies that leave customers being horrible to you

Wouldn’t recommend unless working 1 - 2 days a week - not an ideal full time place to work

Do not work here
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) –  Carlow20 February 2020
I hated my time here. What started off as a dream job turned into a nightmare. So competitive, they watch your every move, search your bags, you not allowed put your jacket on before you leave the store or have your jacket on near the stock room. They don’t trust you from the beginning. It was so competitive and it was very click-y

Just dont
Operastions manager and Sales (Former Employee) –  Dublin11 February 2020
It was ok but overworked underpaid you get trapped cause you think your earning loads but really it's nothing. Management earned more to do nothing or question work they gave you and you followed it was just a rollercoaster of telling them you did as they asked and they never understand you.
