Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Most of the staff are friendly and there's a fairly decent team spirit.

Cons

Poor pay, constant pressure, being forced to push products you may not believe in, management constantly fail to sort out problems, favouritism towards certain members of staff, a lack of appreciation for hard work, little support from other sections of the company, constant staff shortages, little opportunity for personal advancement, you receive next to no training unless you opt to do it in your own time, product knowledge isn't valued as highly as the ability to sell warranties

Advice to Management

Decrease the focus on extended warranties, or at least offer term cover again alongside the PAYG model. Employ an HR team that actually sorts out staff problems rather than one that claims they will but never do. Stop trying to screw over customers in pursuit of profits.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Can't think of much - Staff discount and occasional incentives

    Cons

    High pressure to sell additional insurance, often unneeded. Poor, superficial training. Some dreadful products.

    Advice to Management

    Less of the management speak, and actually do something. Hi-Tech products need staff with more hi tech knowledge.

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

    Pros

    Nice benefits, professionals throughout all levels, lot of traveling and education internationally, nice benefits, proud to work for.

    Cons

    there is very few cons I know of, few understanding of local business and long time to convince of some facts

    Advice to Management

    Maybe little more understanding and patience with local management and workforce. sometimes locally managed company with international backup is better.
