      I have been working at Dunnes Stores part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Tasks are simple and pays ok.

      I worked at Dunnes Stores

      Pros

      Long breaks, but that's about it.

      Cons

      Very poor management. New staff training wasn't good, managers were belittling, and after a 9 hour shift they would still ask you to stay late (unpaid).
