    I have been working at Dunnes Stores full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + Reasonable Pay + Teamwork + Employee Discount + Good Hours.

    Cons

    - Expected to leave cellphone and valuable belongings (Money etc) inside a locker with no key provided.

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff members to request a transfer within there role within the store they are employed in for example Sales Assistant to Deli etc. Consider introducing Living Wage.

    I worked at Dunnes Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, Employee Discount, Christmas vouchers. Some managers and colleagues are nice.

    Cons

    No recognition or chance for progression!!! Not enough staff and managers for the amount of work!!! Miscommunication between management, confused division of work between employees. Not enough holidays, often short notice of roster.

    Advice to Management

    GIVE THE CURRENT EMPLOYEES OPPORTUNITY TO GROW IF THEY ARE INTERESTED!!! Dunnes needs to hire people with retail experience or if they do not have one hire people which want to work and learn!!! If they do not, get rid of them ASAP. It is hard for people who works hard, want get job done but the rest of employees just hiding around, trying to look busy and do nothing!!! And the management mostly do not care!!!... More listen and take into consideration emploees suggestions.
