    Pros

    Enjoyable work, always happy to take you back on for Xmas and summer sale if you’re a uni student, lots of overtime available.

    Cons

    Pay is not as good as other companies and can sometimes put you in for shifts without asking (easily sorted when you speak to your manager though).

    I have been working at Next Retail part-time

    Pros

    Can be a really nice and team-spirited place to work especially if you have a nice and friendly management team. The staff portal shift system is amazing too. makes it so much easier to be in charge of your own working hours compared to other part-time work.

    Cons

    Working either side of Christmas can be a bit daunting, but it's usually quite social and well spirited. If you're unlucky and management are sub-par it makes a big difference.
