I have been working at Dixons Retail

Pros

The business is not just tweaking, it's a true turnaround. Some of the top people in UK retail are there so the opportunity to work with the best turning the business around is unique.

Cons

The company has a very poor attitude to personal development and has a weak talent management process. Needs to recognise the hard work of the workforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget that the business is built on the strength and passion of its people. Whilst everybody is energised by the variety and exciting work, the business needs find better ways to recognise this.

    Pros

    Nationally known company, Decent opportunites to progress within company if you want to, Flexible working in different parts of the company.

    Cons

    Pay for lower ranks is poor.
    Middle Management are clueless and change too often.
    Will not listen to experienced staff opinions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It could be so much better in many ways. Shop floor staff are poorly paid and motivation is done by clueless Managers with a like it or lump it attitude. In turn this leads to a very poor customer experience.

    I worked at Dixons Retail

    Pros

    Lots of hours available, nice people

    Cons

    little praise for doing well, forced to use 'fives' - a terrible training tool

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow advisors to sell their own way - not just using 'fives' - too rehearsed
