    I worked at Decathlon part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - training And all follow up of your career plan. - possibility of international - nice environment (sport, party team,..) - good place to introduce you in business and starting with small responsibility, - discount on product and all commission plan when your department work well.

    Cons

    - some direction or manager kill the culture of the company because they are here because of friend of friend. - hard to get evolution even if you are a best seller except if you have a business school degree.

    Advice to Management

    For mine : stay like this and don't change, this how we worked great. For some : stop to be selfish and think that you are part of Decathlon family. Give some more responsibility (challenge) to your agent for a better fun.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Decathlon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Sporty Culture * Most of the colleagues are very nice people and good craic in the office * Casual office environment * Flexible work-time sometimes * Good number of Vacations * Fresh fruit delivery, sports allowance and store/online discounts

    Cons

    * Highly unorganised finance management. They say it is because Decathlon Ireland is in a start-up mode which is not an excuse considering Decathlon is a multi-million dollar company. * No specific departments. Tasks are randomly allocated and everyone does a bit of everything, which doesn't let people to gain experience in a specific field. If trying to look at the bright side of getting experience in various... fields, the next point causes the problem * Worst trainings which are of no use. A lot of language gaps and knowledge gaps due to most experts being French or Asian * Too much workload for some * Too much French influence in everything mostly in various accounting aspects. They use a lot of French terms in accounting which can be confusing. * Congested Office
