    I have been working at Argos part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brand leader. Well established both online and on the high street. Competitive salaries friendly atmospheres and chances of progression

    Cons

    As part time staff you have to be fully flexible and at the store I work at rotas are published weekly so you can never really make any social plans till last minute and at that point friends are either busy or not free

    Advice to Management

    Potentially complete rotas two weeks in advance so colleges can make plans and know how to plan their weeks ahead

    Pros

    People discount and ok uniform

    Cons

    Asked to work very hard for what is minimum wage. Lots of pressure to hit targets for financial services and insurance, but also told you can't press the customer or recommend they take those services

    Advice to Management

    Either drop FS targets or pay commission. Also ensure staff are given at least 7 days notice of rota's so they can do things when not at work
