      Pros

      Great chances for progression at various levels / roles within the company. Great rewards such as target based bonuses as well as on the spot bonuses and incentive campaigns. Great feeling of pride working with the company that proudly supports LGBTQ causes with various campaigns for staff and customers to get involved in.

      Cons

      The working hours can be long , however this is more of an industry norm than a specific Paddy Power con. If you are used to the industry and hours then this shouldn't be an issue , but can be a bit of an eye opener for new comers, so just something to be aware of

      Pros

      Paddy power have been amazing with us over all of this pandemic we had check ins from our DM and recieved full pay throughout it all, also ontop of this got a nice christmas bonus and a end of year bonus which was amazing and gave made me feel very valued by the company. Also the opitunities to develop your knowledge are there also Im currently undergoing a lvl 3 in customer service.

      Cons

      The only downside for me myself is the jump on rate of pay from assistant manager to manager but it still isnt the worst rate of pay : )

      Pros

      Good pay, extras and bonuses, tips from customers. Great environment to work in, very supportive company, great opportunities to develop your skills and grow in your career, either in shop on in different departments, there's always something new to do at Paddy's! It's fun, entertaining and it makes for a great learning experience if you're new to the industry. If you have any previous experience with the gambling industry, you'll be surprised at how great it is here at Paddy's.

      Cons

      Long hours is probably the only one, but it's worth it.

      Immoral business

      Pros

      Some nice old gents, good conversations.

      Cons

      Poor work life balance, staff taken advantage off regards to lone working , short notice roster changes. Employed for anything under 40 hours a week then be prepared to work more hours on a very regular basis. Forget having a break, in single manned shops the staff cover is skilfully set up to deny you any respite during the shift. Opening the shop will require you to be there way earlier than the time you are actually paid from. Two shops in one most of the time, tolerable while the racing is on and the dying out quickly age range of the "classic" bookies customer is in the shop, later in the evening an unpleasant and at many times unsafe glorified arcade, non English speaking customer after customer betting fortunes angrily and unhappily on Fixed Odds Betting Machines(clues in the name)
