Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
My time in Smyths was brief as I was Christmas staff but I found the staff/management very helpful with any of my own queries as regards to the work, great sense of team work within the staff to get the work done.

Pros

Taxi home provided for staff that work the night pack the morning after.

Cons

Can't think of any to be fair.

Management don’t care about there staff.

They change the roster at any time during the week and don’t inform staff. On one specific day I went into work believing I was starting at 5 (I had half hour journey to work), just to find the roster had been changed. I was now starting at 8. I was only text about the changing of my hours at 10 to 8 that day. They did this on numerous occasions which is complete disrespect to all staff, and shows no respect to any of there lives outside of work.

Productive and cheerful

I thoroughly enjoyed working in smyths. The atmosphere among the staff was friendly and inclusive and the managers were very approachable and easy to communicate with. Around Christmas time, obviously, the nights get later and with that the hours are longer but with the cheerful atmosphere among colleagues it’s bearable. The pay is good and you get 10% discount on toys, but not software.

Busy

My experience at smyths toy store was really busy and outgoing, the staff was all over the place getting the shop ready for Christmas and the black Friday sales, but overall the job was really fun and enjoyable.

Busy and Enjoyable Experience

A busy friendly work environment. Valuable experience gained, communication and leadership skills enhanced significantly. Working off one's own initiative was required in times of low customer amounts. The management communicated well with staff. The hardest part of the job was juggling all of the various tasked asked by customers. The most enjoyable part was the interaction between staff members and also with the customers.

Productive and fun work place, nice people.

I really enjoyed working at Smyths toys, I was always busy. A lot I'd pressure working there, long hours great pay and lovely people to work with. At Christmas time it gets very busy and a lot of pressure is put on you, you have to be able to work under pressure, fast paste, understanding of customer needs for them to leave with the correct product for there children. You need to make sure you exchange details if needed with your company workers, as there may be complaints on certain occasions and everyone needs to know about the goings on. Would definitely work there again.

Pros

Great work place

Cons

Could be managed better.
