    I worked at Argos part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was 16 years old when working there and was receiving £9 per hour on a 12 hour contract

    Cons

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Argos full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay, flexibility, teamwork, opportunities, some really good leaders

    Cons

    Acquisition means slimming down of roles, Argos becoming less of its own brand (in my opinion only), with Sainsbury's becoming a mighty organisation. I'd work for Sainsbury's again but it certainly has a different feel to when it was Argos .
