      Pros

      Good team to work with. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Manager was supportive.

      Cons

      Pay is low for supervision responsibilities. Before 2017, they used to pay for the travel fare when sending staffs to work outside of their home store eg. Liffey Vally, Blanchardstown, Swords, but not anymore.
