    I worked at Argos

    Pros

    Time and a half pay for working Sundays and any hours over your contract, which means your contracted hours is what you'll work, which is good to know.
    Gives opportunities to young people just starting in retail.
    Very nice people and pay is always on time with no fuss.

    Cons

    Can be a bit boring sometimes
