I worked at Dixons Retail part-time (More than a year)
Get to see the latest technology, learn new skills, 10% discount, easy career progression to a certain point. A competitive work environment. Being able to teach customers about something you're passionate about.
Sales first customers second, constant push for you to sell a certain percentage of add ons like insurance then having to deal with angry customers when the insurance hasn't covered something. Standard Retail environment complaints
Advice to Management
Find a balance between customer service and sales that doesn't make your employees appear like vultures to your customers. Know How (if thats still a thing) doesn't work.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dixons Retail (Brno (Czech Republic)) in October 2015.
I received a call after business hours from a Dixons Retail recruiter inquiring if I was “still interested in the position.” (I applied for this position 2 days previously!) After establishing that yes, I was still interested, the THIRD question the recruiter asked was my salary expectation. I thought that that question was inappropriate so early in the interview process and refused to answer. The recruiter then said, “We have nothing further to discuss.” The interview then terminated by mutual consent.
