I worked at Next RetailPros
My manager was understanding and everybody was easy to get on with.
Team work was key so you were rarely blamed personally for targets not being met.
Online system for rota and holidays which is very good.
Holidays were almost always granted, and if not shift swaps or negotiations were allowed.
Always opportunity for extra hours.Cons
The role itself was very laborious and repetitive.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Christmas bonus should be more evenly spread across shop floor and stockroom workers.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Next Retail.Interview Details
I applied online and received a phone call around a month later. They asked if I was available for a phone interview which consisted of 4 quick questions. I was then invited in for an assessment in which I had to act like I worked in Next while someone assessed me - I was in the fitting room. After this I was asked to wait in the staff room while the people assessing discussed what they had seen from me. I was invited through to a meeting room and told there was good news and bad news as they wanted to take me on but the sales assistant jobs (which I applied for) were all gone so would I take a stockroom assistant job to which I said yes anyway. I was given £10 cash for my travels and a £10 next voucher to thank me for attending the interview. I started work around 2 weeks later. Very informal and pleasant.Interview Questions
