    I have been working at next part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some lovely people to work with Incredibly motivated Managers 25% discount Uniform allowance

    Cons

    Fewer staff expected to maintain high levels of customer service Steady reduction of terms and conditions e.g. no extra pay for bank holidays (even Boxing day), no extra pay for Sunday working Compulsory to work Boxing day and other holiday times such as around easter No consideration of flexible working for managers. Staff can swap shifts on line. insufficient time allowed to train new starters Very flat management...

    Advice to Management

    Show the employees that you value them by not worsening their pay and conditions, not just a video from a company director earning £1 million per year to say thank you Allow the stores the man-hours to train new starters properly Care about the staff not just the bottom line, these are the people making the money for the shareholders
