I have been working at Next Retail part-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are times that you serve the nicest customers who really appreciate your efforts.

Some of the managers, particularly on my floor are easy going and easy to relate to

Cons

Pleasing the commercial manager can be somewhat difficult. Hours, one minute you are bombarded with hours to work and other times there are not enough available hours to work and earn a living

Advice to Management

Try and engage more with your staff. If you were to really sit down and examine why staff members are leaving you'd find that 6-7/10 you are the reason for it.

    I have been working at Next Retail (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff Discount 25% - I am at a very good shop, having worked at several and respect the management team overall, some managers are more flexible than others and encourage positive flexibility, but most are rather ridgid.

    Cons

    Management are a mixed bag from good to very smarmy - quite store dependent. Distribution pays better but very robotic. being a seasonal business forget quality Christmases or getting School Holidays off if below manager or Coordinator.

    Advice to Management

    reinstate some of the benefits and consider more humane contracts - Van drivers paid the same as Sales consultants but effectively supervisors? The enhanced training is very good but perhaps some sort of incentive at the end of it.
