Current Employee - Sales Advisor

I have been working at Dixons Retail full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good people, recognition of your personal achievements, keep in touch with technology and learn new skills and techniques everyday by meeting new customers

Cons

Target, sometimes targets can be very difficult to achieve and you have to push yourself to achieve those, making every customer happy can be sometimes difficult if you get a tough customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your location, reward talent not sycophancy and look to great employers in your sector like John lewis and sainsburys as an example - otherwise you will continue to struggle to attract or keep the type of intelligent people who will keep your organisation afloat.
