Love it

great company to work for, amazing colleagues and managers/supervisors. It was my first job ever and couldn’t have had a better experience. So easy to get along with everyone and communicate with supervisors about needs or concerns.

Very good company to work for.

I’ve been working for Noonan’s now for over 4 years I’m a casual working working at various sites I’ve never had a problem with them the management can be a bit lax but other than that all is good. Wages are good and always paid correctly and also paid every fortnight which is handy also.

Depending on your site you get

Not really a bad company to work but has had too many managers who don't know how to do their job never mind training their own staff. They promise you the world and treat you like dirt. Some managers haven't got much experience and just want an easy life and they don't care about your wellbeing.

Pros

No perks

Cons

Long hours and broken promises

Good to work for.

I work for noonan as a Housekeeper in tesco metro Belfast. There good to work for, hours and life balance is also great. If you are willing to do the extra shifts they are willing to give you first crack at them if and when there is any shifts going which is good. Down fall is that head office have attempted to try to wigle there way round not to pay me my proper wage a few times, When confronted about it they've said that I was over paid in my last pay. Which is lies other than that I have no complaints about the staff or supervisor I work with.

Pros

First crack at extra shifts if and when they are there and if you are willing to work them

Cons

Head office on a couple of occasions tried not to pay me my full wage for the hours I worked.

They don’t pay

They don’t pay. Contact with management is impossible! There is only 2 people who wanna help .. manager is rude , cheeky and not professional!!! Work is not difficult but if someone don’t pay for it definitely is not worth it!

Stay clear

Retail manager tells you anything to get you to do what he wants then turns out to be false. Not very good to work for. Used and abused and for little more than minimum wage.

Pros

Hometime

Cons

Start of shift

Bad

Would not recommend working for them. Management in the belfast office expect you to constantly do them favours because they gave you 1 extra day off. There rota would be either a 6 or a 7 day thing so an extra day was nothing. They expect you to drop everything for minimum wage and no help. If you can I would avoid ever working for them

Happy

Happy to work there till something else comes up. The job is good I went from cleaning to porting but still on same wage. I think porters should be paid more

worst job ever

I applied for a job doing security for tesco and on my first day i arrive to find there is no one there to show me what to do...then the guard didnt turn up for the handover so i had to do 2 shifts. Constant texts and calls asking you to cover other sites on short notice. No support from management, my uniform consisted of a tie.

Limited support from stretched lower/middle management roles

Laissez Faire approach from management who were too thinly spread to cope with the demands of their role, to the point where junior line managers felt unsupported and exploited,

Pros

None

Cons

Isolation
