Hardworking, fast paced but rewarding.

Work can be either with customers or just replenishing the shelves, depends on if you work day or night shift. Its a nice place to meet great colleagues and management and learn from all of them. Its a bit fast paced but good rewarding type of job.

It’s a job

I worked here for over a year .Started the week of the back Friday sales and was extremely busy , costumers can be good but a lot were awful .All contracts are flexi meaning it’s difficult to plan for days off and you may work after your rostered time depending on the day.If you can get on management great if not it’s bad.New staff had it the hardiest as they were not trained properly and thrown in, however the staff l worked were fantastic and very helpful. You were talked down to , screamed at and insulted over the headsets l never have seen anything like it before .The turnover with staff and management is awful and they do not know what they are doing.A lot of serious changes need to be fast with this company

Pros

The staff, discount, canteen

Cons

Planning days off, management, no training, long hours, no taxi for night pack

Overworked under paid

Not a great place to work, poor wages poor hours, expect to do the work of 2 people in alot less hours, no benefits what so ever, sunday rates or overtime if your lucky to get some is only a time and a third, even night work, which is only higher rate from 12am to 6am, I highly recommending affording smyths at all costs

Pros

No pros what so ever

Cons

Everything about the place
