    Pros

    You get the opportunity to learn the history of the club and be trained in all areas of the store.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be tiring and the work is very irregular so you will need another job alongside this one.

    I have been working at Arsenal Football Club full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Iconic club, great offices and canteen.

    Cons

    Dreadful management, totally lacking in honesty and integrity. They fail to listen to staff, are immovable to change, bullying and threats towards lower level staff prevails. No team spirit (ironically) or sense that you are valued as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Club Board needs to review managers and look at failings from some of their senior team. This could be such a great place to work.
