      Awful management

      Pros

      Access to new products as soon as they are released. Able to get a sneak peak on new shoes and clothes before they are released to the public. Get staff discount on some of your favourite brands

      Cons

      Limited yearly staff discount (limit is far too low for the prices of stock). Staff are treated terribly (bullied, harassed, treated unfairly, etc.) Glaring double standards for management compared to staff. Payslips are often wrong and sometimes take weeks to fix and get paid. Staff are not listened to, management do not care about their availability and will give them whatever shifts they want to. HR contacts are useless, never able to sort out issues whether they are too lazy to or they don't know how to, always refer you back to your store manager. The area and regional managers are just as bad, if you make a complaint to them about a manager in your store they say they will deal with it then won't. When you make a complaint to higher management about store management, there is no confidentiality, the report gets said to the store managers straight away which then usually is followed by bullying and even further unfair treatment. If you do anything that the managers don't like they hold a grudge against you for weeks, the definition of pettiness. The managers are middle ages adults and act like young children, they are absolutely terrible to work for.

      Be prepared to work hard

      19 Oct 2017 - Store Manager in Dublin, Dublin
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Staff discount after passing trial Quick progression to management for those who work hard and prove themselves Good salary and quarterly bonus scheme (once you hit all KPIs) for Store Managers and Assistant Managers. Great learning curve. If you can successfully manage a JD store you can do anything! Excellent pt Xmas temp job for students with no experience but you must work hard for minimum wage and have thick skin. Entitled to an extra days holiday after 2 years, another after 3 and another after 4

      Cons

      Very long hours, extremely fast paced, poor work life balance even compared to other retailers. NO social events/ Christmas parties, etc- Tight company! No pension, VHI, bike to work scheme. Stressful working environment, unrealistic expectations given the budgets Managers have to work with, not suited to all. High turnover of management and staff. Very little support from Sometimes Micro managed by Area Manager, Head Office, VM department. Head Office based in UK so no opportunities in Ireland to move from store level. No store security (only at Xmas) which means management and staff put themselves in danger regularly. Constant extreme pressure from Profit Protection department who make you feel responsible for every loss and discipline you. (Fear mongering attititude) The company has no interest in participating in charity work or giving back to communities. All it cares about is profits. Christmas at JD Sports is hell on earth.

      Honestly not worth it at all

      Pros

      Staff discount is the only positive

      Cons

      Everything else, you get treated like a slave from management. With overload of work on minimum wage. Also includes a one hour unpaid break which is unnecessary And that break is assigned at a random time , sometimes 2 hours into you’re shift.
