It was a great place to work with a busy atmosphere and countless people coming through on a day to day basis. Never a dull day with great pay to but travelling was hard.

At my location management is really good- very organised, know what they're doing and there's no divide between management and staff. It's a very nurturing environment and all around just a great place to work.

Typical day at work could be from hosting to serving on till and stocking shelfs. Theres was nothing new to learn just basics in which it is easy enough to know. Management can be helpful but say things behind your back wouldn't trust them. Workplace culture mainly irish but was diverse enough.Hardest part of the job was getting in on time due to no bus services and having to cycle nearly an hour to get in. Nothing enjoyable about this job
No Pros

Cons -Early starts at 4-5am and pay by monthly

Management and workers all very friendly, not a bad bone in their bodies. Didn't have much time for a social life and their way of paying wasn't the best.

It's a retail job, nothing more, nothing less. the dangers of rude customers, the joy of meeting nice customers, nice people, good chances of being promoted if you do your job properly.
and if you wanna work abroad and they have shop there - you can transfer. so work and travel is possible.
Pros
permament contract, chance to relocate to other country

you need to be a very hard worker to deal with the huge amount of people that go through the airport on a daily basis. the hardest part is definitely the unsociable hours, but the people you work with make up for the early starts.

A typical day for me in WH Smith would include taking stock, cleaning the workplace and the storeroom. I learned how to use a cash register. The management was strict but fair. My co-workers were all my own age so it was good. The hardest part of the job was getting there as i have no car i had to walk 5 kilometers every morning. The most enjoyable part of the job was that i got to shop in the duty free area and buy nice things.
Pros
Tea, coffe or hot chocolate only cost a euro and breakfast was free.
Cons
Long hours when there was no flights it was not busy at all.
