Great work environment. Tough and loads of change during downturn, out the other side now!

Social Media Role (Current Employee)
Hemel Hempstead, England (UK)

I have been working at Dixons Retail full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI like that this company is based out of London (albeit in Hemel Hempstead!). A real positive that this company is changing, and fast, all for the better. And now that we are 'back' after some difficult times, great to be the retailer that gets the exclusives and the product launches, so good fun if you like technology. Great new stores coming through and nice to work for senior management that genuinely care about a) customers and b) bringing colleagues from across the business closer together

ConsHemel Hempstead is great geographically but not chock full of entertainment in itself. Head office rather dated but that is being addressed

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A short, but very exciting experience...

Customer Advisor (Current Employee)

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

ProsExcellent training, diligent team leaders, sufficient amount of breaks and good access to windows. Great opportunities of promotion.

ConsChances of getting moved around, i.e different teams or even different floors. There are days when calls are very few and the systems tend to fail to often resulting in long holds and transfers.
