In my opinion, backwards and very disrespectful. When I was there the balance between job/life balance didn't exist at all. Some of the people working there thought that it was great because never experienced better, after being with Esso, it was a step backwards.
Pros
Very little
Cons
Irregular working hours

I would start a normal day at 8am and finish at 2pm. my job varied in tasks. I would open up the shop and make sure all lights were on and also activate the till. I learned how to properly wash a car and work a till.My management were kind and were happy with my work ethic and punctuality. the culture of the workplace was good many of the fellow staff were helpful. the hardest part about my job was probably sweeping the yard or sorting out bins etc. my favourite part of my job was definitely interacting with customers, i never had an issues with them and my employers informed me i was well thought of within the area
Pros
good pay and helpful colleagues
Cons
Recieving texts late at night asking would i be able to work tommorow

High work for little pay, very good for meeting new people. Management in my store is horrendous which is the only large drawback. Free coffee and bonuses of around 50 a month. Very little communication from above. Flexible hours so it's good for college students
Pros
Free coffee, meeting people, flexible
Cons
Management terrible, lack of communication from higher up

The hardest part of the job was a delivery, as a woman had to look after huge delivery when my male colleague were serving on the tills,
The management never responding to this issue.

Worked here for 2 years and was paid €9.50 per hour and you can't get paid any higher than that. Easy job though and worked with some good people. Good hours there but as I said same thing every day for very little pay.

Management was very good, they were reasonable and listened to staff suggestions. The workload was a bit too high and in some cases not justified by the wages. Working hours were non-negotiable though.

i worked with topaz cashel for almost a year and found it to be a fun place to work but was also very demanding at times. for example whenever a big event took place such as the ploughing championships or a concert it got extremely busy as the store is just off the M8. I would probably be still working there if I hadnt been offered a job in my home town.
Pros
free coffee, discounted meals, work mates very nice and fun to work with.
Cons
can be demanding at times.
