Dynamic organization

The best place for freshers to head start their career. As the team over there is of similar mindset and age group also being similar . Qualification over there doesn't matter as you will be molded and guided through out your journey there. So yes if you get an opportunity to work there go grab it😀

Pros

Team outing, rapid growth opportunities etc.

Cons

No offs on Saturday and Sunday as they are business days

Wouldn't recommend anyone to work there

I wouldn't suggest anyone to work at Decathlon especially in Pune. The biggest reason being, there is no respect for GIRLS. The work-life balance is terrible. You are expected to be available all the time. You are called to the store anytime! And when you deny going there for extra work, you are tagged as an irresponsible person. You are made to do extra hours of work without any overtime compensation. They don't care about their employees(OSLs to be specific). The store leader, who is supposed to be the HR is clearly biased. Forget personal life if you want to work at Decathlon. Pros - Working in retail increases your confidence and communication skills! There is a lot to learn if you have the correct guidance which is very rare.

Decathlon is good company to grow and learn

I learnt a lot of things in Decathlon. The work culture is really good and different. I never feel bored while working in Decathlon. Decathlon gave me apportunity to develop my skills and work more joyfully.I joined as a fresher but my coach observed my growth and ability, and in 6 month i got promoted as a full timer. I am really grateful that i was a part of Decathlon.

Pros

Free lunches, year launch celebration, business celebration, sports matches, etc

Cons

Long hours.

not had a good experience

Decathlon is a very very much challenging job like first when you come for drd dey ll be like we only take sports enthusiasts PPL and den dey call u 7am for drd and make u run so much do push up pull ups dhimkana falana everything likes shows such a sports company it is but when u enter as a employee dey make you work more den your shift timing every single day dey call you even early for shifts. it's a sports company but employees never play sports out there ders only one thing which we continusly do is working working and working working dey make us work like a donkey no learning no new things no get togethers people are very arrogant over there working der is no fun and PPL join and leaves the company like any thing no one is stable as dey only hire the immature kid so den dey can do what ever the management askes for. Ders like so many thing to share like the management team it self is worst and cloths are nice the quality and price of the company is also very good but the management under der is worst

Pros

Theres no pros in it deyll only show u ll be having this and that

Cons

Long hours no cab facility if u don't shift near by to the store

excessive pressure of work

not a very good experience to work with this company. the employees of the company was just using interns as a labour. the employees were used to sit at meeting room and do gossiping and they were delegating their whole work on the shoulders of interns. even our coach was also don't let us learn new things during internship. as an intern i was there to learn not to do labour work.

Pros

i don't think so, as a intern i got any kind of benefit from this company

Cons

they are using interns as their slave, they should not play with the careers of interns, as all the interns were students their, we were giving you guys our valuable time to learn something, but you guys was just using us

Pays really less for those who joined early on

Good work culture, managers are inexperienced. Forces people to attend office even during covid crisis. Politics is in place and does not let you grow if you are critical to the role

Pros

Work-life balance Pays on time No salary cuts during covid Job security

Cons

Management is inexperienced No HR No policies are written down anywhere

Good place

Decathlon is a wonderful place to work and build your career if your an athelete. Dont get into office politics much and work easy day by day dont put in too much labour. Where people take advantage. The disadvantage of me working there was i was a part timer the manager told me i will be getting a full time job with 24k but in 3 months i was making 21 thousand thats very less for a batchelor so i had to resign.

Pros

Dont work hard

Cons

Body pains much of lower back pain

Competitive work place

Doesn't pay off according to the work load. Never pays for extra extended hours making us believe that this is our priority, forget about your personal life. Lot to learn but Organizational politics are some drawbacks. Lack of basic support towards the employees in their daily lives such as lack of proper rest room for the employees during lunch. Unfair hierarchy sometimes evolved in such organization. Lack and ignorance of personnel's interests.

Pros

No uniform

Cons

Long extended hours. But no pay
