As a new employee, you are given very minimal training and expected to work on the tills on your own on your very first shift, despite knowing very minimal about the till system.
The pay was absolutely appalling for the work expected of you- however does go up after you pass the 3 month probationary period, but a majority of Next contracts are shorter than this so you don't actually get the pay rise. There were younger people, on higher pay.
Breaks are cut short by making your shift 15 minutes short of a longer break e.g. a 5h45 (not 6h) 7h45 (not 8h) so your not entitled to a full break. This happened on very regular basis.
Management were rude and power thirsty. Expected 100% effort from staff, with no acknowledgement of their hard work and were quick to criticize and undermine people.
As for the staff, many were sly, rude and just not very nice people to be around. Which made my time at next, one i was eager to put in the past.
The job its self, was incredibly boring and monotonous.
So in conclusion, I'd steer well away from next as an employer!
