    I have been working at next part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of overtime if you want it A lot of the staff are friendly and look out for each other Once you are finally trained you can pretty much just get on with it everyday Uniform is 75% off and normal discount is 25%

    Cons

    Training is abysmal, very often you are thrown in at the deep end and punished for getting it wrong Management seem to enjoy punished staff The current system for tracking bonus is awful Bonus is unrealistic to earn, relies on you being more efficient than is humanly possible You are also punished for missing these near impossible targets

    Advice to Management

    Change the sytem back to the old one Be kinder to your employees, they are humans not machines
