How are the career development opportunities at next?

Pros

The work is not difficult and an easy role for a student or part time worker.

Cons

Micromanaged by egotistical "managers", pay is terrible, minimal opportunity for career development - and minimal increases in pay for those who progress. Staff are chastised for any appearance of slacking, to the point where you can't even stop to ask a co-worker a question without being warned that management were surveying you from security cameras.

Advice to Management

Understand that there is little incentive for your staff to care about standards of work or customer service.
