    3.0
    Former Employee - Part-time Sales Assistant in Dublin, Dublin
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sports Direct part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable working hours, one shift could be from 4-7 hours with a half hour to one hour break. Got to work on different floors and had a very rounded experience from working on the cashier to doing runs for shoe sizes.

    Cons

    Temporary staff only had two shifts per week, was not given the option to take on more. Extra Commission is only given on shopping bags or shoes so if working on a floor that doesn't sell these, then no commission added to pay. Ground floor radio line was constantly busy so sometimes shoe size request were not dealt with as soon as possible
