I have been working at Next (UK) part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great bonus's when we meet targets and even better super bonus's! 25% staff discount and 75% uniform allowance. Good training program.

Cons

The shift patterns are 3 hour shifts for part timers and you can only work a maximum of 20 hours per week. You have to re-apply for your contract every year and if you don't get it you could be made redundant! They have red weeks when you are not allowed to take any time off work this is over busy periods like sale days and the whole of December...

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

    Pros

    NEXT is one of the few companies that hires 16 years old students, especially without experience, which is normally difficult to come by.

    Cons

    Disorganisation on the part of staff, with expiration dates of contracts not being checked. Poor communication between staff and management. And low wages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep track of contracts and ensure employees actually sign them
