Current Employee - IT Support in Hemel Hempstead, England (UK)

I have been working at Dixons Retail full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

10% discount at store. Can't think of anything else

Cons

Long hours, no career progression prospect, continuous redundancies and managed out of business. Staff appreciated by higher management just another number. No training provided and people moved out of business due to small reasons. old building, equipment and awful IT support from India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen you your staff and appreciate the hard work they do.

    I worked at Dixons Retail full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Open door hiring policy. Multicultural mix of staff and management.

    Cons

    all load is shifted downwards, even when it is quite easily manageable at middle level, with minimum resource information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must get dynamic and up to date being a tech. company in soft measure and procedures. Must keep stable outlook and presence on premises to gain customer confidence. There are other ways to make net margin without pressurized selling of insurance.
