I worked at Next (UK) full-time (more than an year)Pros
Great flexible atmosphere, overtime is often available, as are early finishes. Management are down-to-earth and there are many opportunities to move up and gain experience where you care to gain experience.
Also, picking and packing bonuses are VERY rewarding and worth earning.
Great canteen and services, too.Cons
Work can be hard and stressful, bonus scheme is not ENTIRELY fair (some batches can be harder than others with no compromise in KPIs). During Winter and Summer sales, working can be incredibly cramped and hot due to outsourced workers flooding in, also causing a shortage of supplies and some REALLY stressful times trying to balance bonus. Higher-up managers can be particularly blind to warehouse conditions and complaints.Advice to ManagementAdvice
(To the higher management) Consider sympathising more with the problems of the lower down staff and try to improve speed at which problems are generally addressed to maximise efficiency ALL AROUND the warehouse.
(And to floor managers) Should try to compliment staff more on hard work on tougher days, this will alleviate stress to NO END, sometimes even warehouse staff need a thanks for the hard work and effort they put in.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
