Long hours but very rewarding if your focused and motivated. Senior management promises you the earth and a lot of it never materialises .lower level management ok.One of the things I never enjoyed whilst working there was that I was mon to friday .This lasted only short term after a few mths it was OK then they went back on there word and had me working weekends most weeks.I couldn't really plan things properly working these hours and could not recharge.It was work work work they never really thought too much about the employees its was there way or no way.The senior management a bit disorganised most of the time .Too many bosses that couldn't make proper decisions.
Pros
If you worked hard you were rewarded well
Cons
Long hours very short breaks lot of pressure continually

You will not make money here. The leads I generated through canvassing were squandered, very little were sat by their Salesmen, so our hard work to get the leads was, I felt disrespected. I felt that there is a culture with CRSmith to respect the telesales leads or the direct interest, then venue leads then the D2D generated leads seemed to be squandered. They'll tell you one in 4 leads you generate gets sat, but honestly in our experience its more like 1 in 10.

If you have ambition and the true drive to make serious money then I can’t think of a better place to work. CR Smith challenge you on a daily basis but are good at uncovering your talents and making you into an excellent sales professional.
Pros
With ability and drive you can make good money.
Cons
Long days, however not constant work as breaks in between.

I never spent much time here to give a fair response to this. Therefore i can not give a review fairly. I did enjoy the role for the short time i was there.

Working in the complex i get to showcase our products to customers and work closely with sales executives during their visits with customers. This can be quite a busy role when having to attend to a few customers at a time but the sales executives help when they are available so it is good to have them on hand to learn from.

Money could be better. Good hard workers that are underpaid but still have enthusiasm for the job. Management from top to bottom still stuck in the 80's.

We start an half 7 in the morning and normally finsh aboat 6 but a lot off the time we would wrk longer hours without geting paid. I did learn a lot at work but found i learnt more at collage. The hardest part of the job was wrking away from home and not geting paid any extra for it. The most enjoyable part was doing the real joinery work.
Pros
steady work
Cons
poor pay

I learned a lot from CR Smith over the period of time working there. I can finish of doors and windows, fit handles, hinges and double glazed units. There was no really hard part to the job, my co-workers were friendly and always up for a good laugh which I enjoy. Although the management wasn't as organised as they should have been but I still really enjoyed my time there. The most enjoyable part of the job was, in general, working and obviously the salary at the end of the week.
