    I worked at next part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to temporarily change availability for non contracted days. Ability to get shifts covered and offer shifta on the marketplace or accept overtime. Staff discount and uniform allowance Ability to do work in all departments (as and when needed) including delivery/stockroom or parcels.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be too expectant of staff, requiring members of staff to complete big tasks in short amounts of time. Management often not on shop floor. Hourly rate is lower than most high street stores. They often cut hours. They often call you in for overtime or to cover a shift (which is good) but get annoyed if you arr not able to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time working on the shop floor and help your members of staff. Don't just disappear and expect them to do all your work.
