Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Dixons Retail full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Dsg are a powerful company with certain categories often with over 50% market share. Former CEO was very strong implementing much needed change.

Cons

An environment exists in Dixon where those who have the ability to put the best spin on a situation were likely to do well. This was improving but still not enough focus on wider performance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dixons Retail full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the right store, with the right management team then it can be enjoyable. Otherwise, head office don't care too much about those on the ground.

    Cons

    Lots of mis-communication to the store staff from head office both from a sales target and merchandising point of view.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the staff more, rather than worry about if they are going to do something bad.

    I have been working at Dixons Retail part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good for students to get some experience, young environment, social events, decent salary for students.

    Cons

    Promised benefits never paid, promised opportunities for further development never came true, some of the branches are purely recruiting only certain nationalities

    Advice to Management

    Improve! It doesn't matter that you are dealing mostly with students you should act as professionals.
