Neutral Outlook

I worked at Next Retail part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pays well for a call centre job and because Next does so well bonuses are near enough a dead certainty

Cons

Too strict, many changes in managers and no real prospects for promotion

Advice to Management

Try to get some consistency in the work place. Rules are different with each manager so call reviews vary per manager

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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours , overtime , job security , ability to progress , good training scheme and positive appraisal system

    Cons

    Recently reduced premium for working Boxing Day , poor security team meaning high stock loss, confusing till updates.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate current managers to ensure most competent staff are doing the job. Better trained call center support staff as they are unhelpful.
