Supermarket jobs in Galway



If you want to get experience working in a shop (ie retail), then a supermarket can be a great place to start:  supermarkets usually are willing to hire people with very little experience, and train them,.  They have  good training programmes (smaller shops can be a bit more "informal).   And they hire lots of staff.

So - where do you find supermarkets in Galway, and how do they advertise for staff?
