Argos / Communistic employment

1 England, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom Review updated:

I have worked for Argos for a while now and have never worked anywhere else that is as soul destroying as Argos. In the store i work in and position i work in i am on constant call and have had four days off in the last six weeks. Holidays are denied and holiday entitlements go to managers and team leaders first.
Staff are bullied and forced to hit targets or they get a recorded conversation to discuss why targets are not being met, why customers are waiting, why they are not good enough at their job.
The store i work in we have just been told that we must obey our chain smoking lazy team leaders and managers or we can leave as we are not entitled to an opinion.
Therefore work loads are forced onto you from all directions whereas your so called leaders sit back and do nothing.
Argos is a truly ### company to work for. It smiles at its customers, gives useless insurancewhere you can't get your money back and treats its employees as if the uk was communist russia.
Truly a dreadful company.

I also work for Argos and have found the company a horrific employer. We're asked to work as hard as our competators but for less money. The company cheekly employs all of it's staff members on part-time hours, limiting their entitlements to holiday, overtime pay and extra hours and then slaps overtime on you or strips you to barely an hour whenever they feel fit. We're also given no or pathetically little bonus after the year is up. If Argos plan on keeping their moral-stricken workforce, they should at least consider upping their paychecks to match their competitors.
