Producutive Workplace
I am always punctual so i arrive at work 15-20 minutes before my shift . I have learnt a vast array of skills such a communication,organisation,teamwork,independent,customer service and stockroom. I am known in work as both a hard worker and a team player . The most enjoyable part of my job is learning new skills and hitting our sales target both monthly and annually.

Was as a fun place to work in the beginning, but as management changed, more rules and regulations were added, which made work life less and less enjoyable.

Helpful and friendly environment.
A typical day at work involved replenishing and organising stock, serving customers their goods, handling cash transactions with customers and answering queries and questions customers had. Management were helpful and friendly, as were my team of co-workers. The hardest part was the physical labour which took its toll after a long shift, while the most enjoyable part was interacting with co-workers in a friendly environment.

Sometimes fun , sometimes very demanding
I would either be on tills all day or helping customers on the shop floor I learned how to cope with high pressure retail environments The store manager could be harsh at times but he's a good guy There were a lot of interesting people from all over the world the hardest part of the job was the tills because the computers dont use barcode readers , so you would have to manually input a product code one digit at a time every time The most enjoyable part was getting to know the people i worked with

argos
a typical day at work would be stock room work and customer service work. I learned great communication skills and how to deal with impatient customers. the management where very demanding but always looked after us if we needed help. my co-workers where great to work with and I had a great relationship with them. The hardest part of the job where trying to set your targets on customer services but I would always do my best to do so. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was in the stock room because you where always on your feet keeping busy

Ok
There is a tough work/life balance within the company. Depending on what department you're working in, it can be stressful at times. The management can be quite helpful in terms of trying to help with your flexibility to work, especially if you have other commitments such as children, extra job etc.

Seasonal Associate | Falkirk | 18 Dec 2017
overstaffed and uninspiring
During my time working in Argos the duties that i was asked to undertake were too varied which led me to not being fully trained in any of the separate job titles. It varied from working as a cashier and processing orders to "picking" which was going to collect the orders and put them through to front of house and then working on the collection point where the customers collect there orders. i felt under trained as there were far too many staff taken on to cover the busy Christmas period. The hardest part of the job was working in areas where i felt under trained and under pressure due to the busy time of year in the retail industry. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the fast placed environment.

Frustrating, boring, very few hours
A typical day at work involves tedious repetitive tasks picking stock with a headset that doesn't always work properly and a broken glitchy IT system. It's frustrating because all the things that we do can be done faster and easier. There are silly targets to be done, such as putting delivery away under a set time, and the amount of cards and care we sell. The headset glitches so it can be appear you put an item away much longer than what you actually have. There are times when we have to deal with customer views, deliveries and picks, so it can get busy and sometimes things have to be left. When there is no delivery and just picks, busy times depend on the amount of customers who come into the shop, so it can get more boring. The morale of the store can depend heavily on the manager. It can sometimes be a laugh, but other times not. Promotion is very difficult, especially when management don't train you in everything. Our hours can be cut whilst management get around 40 hours a week and the shifts are often too flexible. I could be starting in the late afternoon or early morning, with an early finish or a late start. We know the hours about a week before. But in a way one of the best things about the job is the lack of hours, which means we have more free time out of work, but the hours we get (15-20) are not enough if you are not a busy student. The best thing about the job is the staff. You often get a variety of people, including young people who especially enjoy th
ProsSome staff, flexible hours, staff outings
ConsFrustrating way of doing things, difficult to get promoted, too few hours

sometimes challenging but easy going
busy and active. I learned to express myself and interact with customers nice easy going management, friendly and free to offer advice when needed. great co-workers, always able to help each other and great positive teamwork. difficult customers can be the most challenging part but that's expected. being with a team who is always friendly and polite despite sometimes being in a stressful environment.
