    I worked at Argos full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    10% discount. Flexible working hours for teams. Uniform supplied. Varied jobs

    Cons

    On your feet all day, up and down ladders ~ this could also be seen as a health benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure schedules are in place for teams for future weeks.
    Don't have all young employees. Age brings experience.
