Stable but Pressurised Work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working hours are 8am-4pm and you are required to work mandatory overtime from 8am-1pm on a Saturday. You can request to have a Saturday off, but will not be allowed if one of the other 3 estimators has already done so. Comission is paid on your ex. VAT sales for the month providing you have acheived a minimum of £30k of sales. That's an acheiveable target, but the comission is a pretty low rate (e.g. 1% of a special offer sale worth £50) meaning you don't earn much above your base rate of pay. A work perk is that you get a company car with fuel, etc. paid for and can get away with using it for small and low-distance journeys outside of work hours. You can also run errands during your day at work and finish early if you get through all of your jobs, however you will only be paid for the hours you work.

Pros

Can manage your own day/route

Cons

Mandatory Overtime

Both Friendly and non friendly enviroment

The job itself was fine half the staff members were friendly and outgoing the other half seemed gossipy and unfriendly and at times toxic. The hardest part of the job would be the monotony of the work very repetitive.

Great team enviroment

Cutting and preparing hardware for custom made exterior blinds and fixed awnings, assembling blinds and awnings. Preparing work to be fitted next day. Occasional customer service. Accurately measuring and cutting parts and assembling them. The hardest part is doing it as quickly as possible. Management and co-workers were good to work with.

Pros

Family enviroment
