Everything you need to know about sales assistants Pennys jobs in Ireland

With employment at a premium like never before in Ireland, every single position is being bitterly fought over by prospective employees. Today we're going to take a look at Pennys, one of the most popular clothing chains in the country, and examine what is involved in a job there in our "Everything you need to know about sales assistants Pennys jobs in Ireland" feature.

The name Pennys is actually a rebranding of popular UK based chain Primark for the Irish market, despite the fact that the company's headquarters are located in Dublin. To date, Primark has 215 stores throughout Europe - although most are located in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

In total there are 150 British stores compared to the 38 Irish ones. The company also features 19 stores in Spain, 4 in Portugal, 3 in Germany, 2 in the Netherlands and 1 in Belgium, and the next two years will see the opening of further outlets in Germany and Holland.

Like any store the success of Pennys very much depends on the quality and abilities of its staff. Sales assistants are of the utmost importance to the retail experience, and therefore must be helpful, polite and knowledgeable about the products they are selling.

Since Pennys specialise in clothing, accessories and homeware, this means that a solid working knowledge of at least one of these areas is desirable if you are to gain employment for the company.

In working as a sales assistant, the wages will not be quite as high as they might be in other roles throughout the store, such as management or executive roles which carry much more responsibility, but given the high minimum wage in Ireland, employees should make enough to be relatively comfortable.
