Ability and talent acknowledged but an overall lack of information from management

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Manchester, England (UK)

ProsFloor managers do praise a job well done and are quick to recognise talent and ability. Also the benefits are good.

ConsToo many floor managers at times create confusion amongst staff regarding what needs to be done. Rarely ever see store/area managers, it would be useful to get feedback from a higher level which isn't filtered through several other managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more feedback and trying to sell the Directory to distracted shoppers is a hard job and too much pressure is put on reaching targets that are often impossible to reach, creating a lot of Directory applications with false information!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Nottingham, England (UK)

    I worked at Next (UK) part-time for more than a year

    Pros: You're always guarenteed atleast 4 hours a week, and get… Cons: Very disrespectful, I got no appreciation for what I did. The management was terrible. I got given hours last minute, without any pre-warning. I never… Advice to Senior Management: Respect your staff, and don't make them feel 3 feet tall. Pre-warn staff on hours given and don't change them last minute. Ensure the training… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
