Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Yate – 18 October 2017
I worked at Argos, Yate a few years back and I must say it was a decent job. The managers actually managing; unlike so many other places iv worked. The managers respect you and are happy to teach you when your stuck. It's a job which gives a contract (most important ) and a contract with actual hours (no zero hours!!).
I worked during the period of Christmas season and black Friday - and it was extremely busy!!! There is only so much Frozen or One Direction toys you can cope with! Yuck!
You learn all aspects of the job -tills, warehouses and giving customers products.
Pay is the usual minimum wage.
Only con is that the headset worn in warehouse to find items is quite old and dliw- most of the time you can't understand it or it can't understand you so takes twice as long to find items.
Good team, good training, contracted, respectable managers, expected pay

From the moment I stepped through the door on my first shift I felt at home, the management team I worked under were truly a blessing, I worked with great people every day and was always able to share a laugh with anyone on my shift; a true workplace family.
Christmas Temp part time (Former Employee) – Kidderminster, Worcestershire – 13 October 2017
adapted to my needs, warm and welcoming and great colleagues, i learnt how to use a till and deal with customers in a professional manner, the workplace culture was very nice overall the hardest part was not being able to fulfill my position due to health reasons and i most enjoyed meeting new people helping customers and the friendly staff.
Typical day would be busy as this is a big company therefore there wasnt really time to rest within picking out item but the management and the people around you made it worth will as they would lighten up your mood within job hours.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Plymouth – 10 October 2017
My job consisted of carrying boxes around the stockroom, maybe good for a first job, but it's not the kind of job that anyone would choose to go back to. The hours weren't very long but the job was so boring that it felt like a long time.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire – 9 October 2017
Mostly the management wouldn't do anything. Once my manger just went shopping instead also had no idea how to work the tills. I never got my login for my till even though I asked several times. My actual colleagues were lovely and provided help and support throughout my experience.
Christmas staff (Former Employee) – Thamesmead, Greater London – 8 October 2017
Buzzing atmosphere where you are very much part of the team. There is always something new to learn and the chance to advance your career. You must be able to multi-task, especially at busy times of the year and always be friendly as you are dealing with customers face to face on a regular basis
