Working in a Sainsburys store demonstrating items. Suggestions how to set up. Stand using a smart phone to send in pictures and log in to job. Fun job canteen plenty to use like a microwave fridge spacious area. Stock sometimes limited so target wasn't acheived so frustrating
Shifts varied from min of 1 to max of 4 no set rota
Started off really well. Lots of training, products, team building. After a few months, everything was taken away, unrealistic goals. Head office management would string you along and promise promotions but nothing ever happened. The team were lots of fun, but hardly saw them.
No direction, no bonuses, no discounts, no support from head office
After leaving a job due to the coronavirus I was pretty nervous about working for cosine. I had previously had a really bad manager who had destroyed my confidence. But Rich my manager at cosine had absolutely restored my faith in working life. He runs his team firmly but fairly and always encouraging us to do our best. He is so easy to get along with and very trustworthy. No question goes unanswered and he works himself to the bone for us. I'm saddened to leave in desember as I feel at home here. Thank you cosine you rebuilt a person who was in desperate need of it. I will forever be in debt to the team and amazing management!
Management, pay, care, bonus
Contracted until December
Excellent company to work for, great support from managers and HR. They only give you very realistic target to achieve . If you have concerns management listens to you and supports you.
Really supporting management and HR
Nothing to say
the job was poorly run with very little communication, which added to the stress of an already stressful sales job. The redudancy meeting that i had was poorly organised and seemed very last minute. would not reccomend working for cosine as they do not look after their employees and dont treat them in the correct manner.
Sampling stands crammed into cages with boxes of Products stored on top. Arrive early to set up the point of sale & thoroughly clean the inside & out side of the stand for health & hygiene. Check for any damage to the stand for safety. If cooking is required add the microwave or halogen oven & extension leads. Consumables etc. Most days are busy depending on the campaign and how popular it is. Purchase ingredients, prepare vegetables, cook ingredients and hand out samples to consumers . Encourage customers to purchase and to make at home. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you sell out of buying stock then move on to the alternative, if this sells out, move onto super alternatives. Rewarding results.
I was employed by Cosine for 3 years, employed on a contract for DPD courier service. I enjoyed working for Cosine at first until they started to employ Area Managers that would do as they are told by Dpd so all blame always got passed on to Cosine employees. This was due to Cosine Management being weak and not being able to express to Dpd the problems that dpd were creating all due to the fact that Cosine were frightened of losing the contract contract.

Having worked for an area manager that I had not seen. I was the subject of rude and offensive language. When I told her I would not work for her the money I was due was stopped. I had to take legal action to get what was mine.
Such a fantastic company to work for. I was working on the LG account and they helped me with progression my whole time I was with them. I would still be there now if it wasn't for redundancies. They are like a family. Very loving and if you need to ring for a chat or to let off steam they are always there to help out
Such a loving company
Pay a little on the lower side for the roles
Dependent on what account you work on, will depend on whether you enjoy your time at Cosine or not. Some of the account managers are fabulous and will support, coach and help you be the best you can be. Initially workplace culture is also fabulous and you are made to feel extremely welcome and part of the wider business.
Great opportunity to work with local stores. A fun and open atmosphere to meet/ engage various customers and be of help towards their buying decisions
Ability to push yourself and see what you can achieve in any one day in terms of 'target'
Hard to return or gain the same type of employment, once an employee leaves.
I joined this company as a 'Brand Ambassador', which was advertised as a marketing based role involving taking an active part in the promotion of a new product including analysing the feedback from potential customers. In reality, the job was standing in a shopping centre trying to sell broadband. The job was entirely misadvertised and at no point did they mention the day to day activities of the job, instead just using vague terms - as a 21 year old finding my first job, I fell for this. The other people hired alongside me were also my age and I believe they took advantage of our naivety. We were on our feet, often in the rain for 8 hours with only a 30 minute break, and branded underperforming when not enough people signed up (as if we could control what other people do). The working hours were also grossly misadvertised, as well as the bonus scheme. I was paid £20,000 for this job, which was a great starter salary but in no way worth it. To put it plainly, I'm now in a £16,000 per year job and I wouldn't switch places because I'm now respected in my new job. The company also treated some of my coworkers poorly and were not at all sensitive or respectful to employees suffering from mental health issues.
Falsely advertised job, poor treatment
