    Nice people in pockets

    Cons

    Low pay
    Unclear pathway for progression
    Unprofessional buying practices
    Low morale
    No social element - rarely a staff party
    Drab working environment and uninspiring location
    Very bureaucratic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your location, reward talent not sycophancy and look to great employers in your sector like John lewis and sainsburys as an example - otherwise you will continue to struggle to attract or keep the type of intelligent people who will keep your organisation afloat.

    I have been working at Dixons Retail part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Chances 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.
