I have been working at Next Retail part-time (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 Retail full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent staff discount and uniform allowance.
    Over time at busy periods
    Decent amount of annual leave
    Good bonus scheme

    Cons

    Low salaries
    Poor working conditions - half hour break for working a full day?
    No flexibility
    Expected to work half an hour after your shift finishes to tidy the store and cash up without pay!

    Advice to Management

    The managers get bonus for cutting hours. Sales staff stretched to breaking point so you can walk away with a nice gift card? Hardly seems fair if you're going to sit in the office all day.

    I worked at Next Retail as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company organised, good training if you like watching videos!!!!

    Cons

    Push you in the deep end too quickly, manager wrote quite a harsh review on me- judging that I had no prior experience in retail,

    Advice to Management

    don't be so strict with the work placement students!
