    Former Employee - Stockroom Assistant in Liverpool, England (UK)

    I worked at Next Retail

    Pros

    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.

    Recommends

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed 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.
