Smyths Toys Employee Review

Terrible Company

Worst company I ever worked for. Make you work 6 days a week for 8 weeks coming up to Christmas, and don't pay you for the extra day they tell you it's included in your bonus - which I never got. Was supposed to be €1,000 which they tax! Terrible hours, 12 hours + a day, Christmas hours even worse. Head Office have no clue what they are doing. Staff are not trained well or properly and fear mystery shoppers everyday.

Same role

no work life balance

took 2 months from application to offer. Salary was good but not worth the cons. No work life balance long hours. Health and safety is implied as important but in reality it isn't on the floor and the deliveries. Unrealistic expectations at times. Very little staff discipline. If you happy to not have a balance be a manager here

Pros

salary

Cons

long hours heavy work load no work life balance

Same role

Fast paced, hard work, enjoyable

Work like balance was the only hard thing about this job, working 6 days for 6 to 8 weeks at Christmas but overall I enjoyed my time and if didn't have small family would still be there. Pay was average for management but quite low for staff.
