I have enjoyed working in Spar. The best aspects of the job are the customer service aspect, getting to know and developing a rapport with regular customers. I have learned valuable skills, such as cash handling and balancing, stock management, responsibilities such as invoicing, ordering and managing deliveries.
A polish group that protect themselves. They get the best shifts, best tasks, never have hours cut (because the manager is polish). Then, they literally take advantage of you. The manager is ridiculous. Don't want problems, bossy, dumb, bully and rude, even with customers. If you are not Irish or Polish, you will be bullied. They blame you for everything and give you the worst tasks. Not recommend this branch. The customers on the area are not nice. Some of them really stink.
Team. Bad customers.
Was treated so unfairly. Was paid such a horrific wage, and was treated horribly from the get go. Many of my colleagues mistakes or errors were pinned on me, and I was wrongfully accused of many things. Horrible. Management haven’t a clue.
No discount. No free lunch. Horrible management. Horrible staff. Unfriendly.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Long hours/heavy work load with minimum pay. Nice people in food serving sections but clear segregation between floor staff and bakery/deli section. Management put a lot of pressure on staff to get vast amounts of work done with not enough time. More of a student job is needing the money but will not progress above minimum wage here only plus is an hour lunch break.
Worked there for some months, had an amazing colleagues, hard working and dedicated - store manager, supervisor, sales assistance guys. Made new friends over the time. But over those months all of the staff has left the job (some people worked there for 2 years), including me, due to very, very terrible and unprofessional area manager (?). The shop is OK and the team members were great, made new friends but the constant stress from the higher manager in an unprofessional way is not worth it.
