    I have been working at Next Retail part-time

    Pros

    Good bonuses beyond the basic salary, flexible shifts, ability to take extra shifts on Marketplace.

    Cons

    Being expected to work more than your contract hours (can be a positive to some), some individual members of staff treat the younger members of staff with some contempt. Fine if you aren't easily upset but if you are you may not like it.

    Advice to Management

    Expect the same from all members of staff (some are allowed to get a away with a lot more than others).

    Pros

    leaving, clocking out, easy to get the job

    Cons

    Managers have no respect for staff, they expect you to work like your being a paid above minimum wage when if fact I was being paid below, constantly being made to feel as if I wasn't good enough despite doing everything in the task book

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with some respect and they won't all leave.

    I worked at Next Retail

    Pros

    Majority of the staff are freindly and really welcoming Pay rate is okay Lots of opportunity for overtime The employee website makes it easy to switch or give up shifts There are always little things you can do to earn a little extra money They are genuinely really passionate and commuted to providing excellent customers service

    Cons

    The managers are awful You are not allowed to socialise with other members of staff Christmas temps are basically hired to do everyone else's jobs for them If you are hired in the sale season your training is really basic and you aren't thought how to do stuff properly

    Advice to Management

    Train your temps better

    Pros

    Colleagues helpful and friendly Discount and uniform allowance Meeting new people everyday

    Cons

    Management don't care about you personally as long as you turn up to work ( my manager basically said whether you have family problems or religious reasons, you still have to come work) It was okay for management to talk with one another but not sale assistants. Too much work load. low wages. Not training expected to know everything.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly like how you would be expected to be treated. Train all staff properly.

    Pros

    25% discount. Team are all lovely and friendly to work with. Getting a uniform allowance is brilliant and also getting first access to sale stock.

    Cons

    Managers do not care if you are sick they make you feel guilty even though you are entitled to sick leave.

    Pros

    Staff discount, uniform allowance, first dibs at sale items, chance to pick up extra shifts if desired, colleagues are frirendly

    Cons

    Practically no christmas break, little to no formal training, no chance of progressing if your not one of the favourites, favourtism, contract hours are only a guide most of the time, management aren very understanding alot of the time

    Advice to Management

    Its not the worst place to work but treat staff like people not slaves and stop the preferential treatment for less deserving staff its not fair
