    I worked at Argos full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, great colleagues, interesting products working inside a Sainsburys makes you feel part of a large company.

    Cons

    Concessions within Sainsburys stores are to small and rammed with stock, this becomes unmanageable during peak and is challenging normally, the staffing hours are inadequate leading to poor service at times, the companies technology occasionally fails which leads to missing orders and items adding to poor service.
    Argos Cards and Insurance on electrical goods are very high, you need to sign up for 1 in 100 transactions you and your team need to be aggressive sales people and due to low staffing EVERY colleague will need to perform. Also to many KPIS

    Advice to Management

    Support the managers drop the blame culture.

    I have been working at Argos full-time

    Pros

    Technology transition: build not buy principle

    Cons

    Extremely hard to have a career there. People with 10+ years experience not consider even senior (although deserved), team leader role doesn't exist so no middle role between developer (not senior) and dev manager.

    Managers should communicate more with each other, they do not talk to each other because they do not like each other and the employees suffer the most!
