Supervalu Ireland Employee Review
Easy working environment
Easy place to work and staff are very friendly and close knit. Always helping each other and management are helpful when they're not in a mood. Can be stressful at times

Friendly staff, easy going working environment
Money is minimum wage and dont bother asking for a pay raise
SuperValu did not provide the legal minimum of breaks for me while working there, yet subtracted time for these breaks from my pay each week. I received very few hours each week and was paid poorly for what I did work. There were no benefits or discounts whatsoever, and overall the management were rarely friendly or helpful.
A typical day at work for me in Athlone SuperValu would depend on which shift I was working. In the morning it would start with cleaning the coffee machine and getting all of the tills cleaned and organised. Then I would proceed to work on the tills for the remainder of my shift. For the evening shift, I would go straight to the tills, then do a till read after the shop had closed and place the tills in the office. From working at Athlone SuperValu, I have learned how important team work is and how maintaining friendships with other co-workers makes work easier and fun. Management always treated all of the staff with respect and if we ever had any issues, they were always dealt with straight away. Myself and my co-workers have formed friendships for life. One of my favourite things about going into work was seeing my co-workers. The hardest part of the job, in my opinion, was learning not to take a rude customer personally. I just kept smiling and remained calm and polite. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely nice comments from customers, e.g. "You have a lovely smile" and "You always provide great service here". Those comments would make my week! It was great to know that customers enjoyed coming into the shop and having a chat with you.
