Featured Review

Current Employee - Retail Sales Associate

I have been working at Argos part-time

Pros

A part time contract is 8 hours a week and they’re super understanding for college students. I always get days off for exams or to study no questions asked! Also it’s a pretty relaxed job, if there’s... nothing to do you’re allowed to just stand around and chat with your co workers. No need to be looking busy all the time

Cons

There’s an emphasis on selling insurance policies and you need to keep a certain percentage. It’s not grounds to be fired but if you keep under performing management will be at you
