Nightmare
A company run by monkeys. Boylesports exists only to serve hordes of mindless mud people. This company contributes nothing to society, it's only use being that it acts as a central hub for junkies and soon to be corpses. The money is pitiful. The benefits are none. The hours are inhuman. I would rather eat buckets of paint while being beat with a hurley for 13 hours a day than sit in a Boylesports shop and have to deal with the fat morons than infest this abyss of despair and hatred. Free coffee all the same.
ProsMet some good people within the staff.
ConsA cons list would be longer than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Exciting, Fast Paced, Great Co-Workers
Fun, exciting, fast paced but can be stressful in certain situations. Management were ok but run very strictly as should be expected. Was always fun going into work and was never the same experiences every day. Improved my sporting knowledge immensely and customer relations were fantastic

Enjoyable work environment
Enjoyable work environment, dealing with sports tasks on a daily basis. It involved dealing with daily tasks individually and on a team basis. Management allocated your tasks daily, and if or when required I would do additional tasks if someone was out sick or someone else needed a hand on their work.
Prosbonuses

Great and friendly working staff and management
Tesco was great to work for at 16, I made so many friends and as it was my first real job, it was a great place to learn interpersonal skills and customer services. Tesco also had great get togethers for staff, I was on the Tesco's ladies football team and we won 3 years in a row, it was so much fun.
ProsSocial events and great all round people
Consnone

Flexible hours but long.
Busy stressful fun . No place to really eat food. Finish at 930 every night. Not enough pay to justify what you are expected to know or deal with it. The more customers moan the more staff give in to them. People that work here have to think quick and serve quick . It is a more skilled job than working in a bank but with a lot less money and a lot more stress.
ProsFlexibility on days off
ConsPay, hours.

Not a great environment for me
The salary was quite low, hours weren't great either. I didn't really enjoy my stay with boylesports. I know many others who currently work there and enjoy it however.

If you were to leave BoyleSports, what would be the reason?
Asked 6 Aug 2019
An awful terrible hateful place to work. Don't go there.
Answered 14 Aug 2020
Left due to long hours and far too many inexperienced staff. If breaks were taken you would be leaving your inexperienced staff to work on their own and after coming back from break it was more stressful to fix what mess has just been created. Easier not to take any break so you knew what was going on.
