Sales Advisor/Customer Service Advisor in Nationwide
Good company to work for.
Colleagues were very helpful during the training process. Uniform was provided, including a waterproof jacket. The manager was good at inspiring and pushing you to make sales and give the best customer service experience to potential customers.

If don"t mind using your own time its an ok job
Company are very flexible during interview process. However this changes once start training. You are expected to arrive 10 mins start time. Never let off before 5pm even if finished required training for the day. Once out in office again expected to be logged in before start time ready to take first call. Also you can get caught on a call and not able to finish on time. This can be up to 20 -30 mins. Taking this in to account and 10 mins to log in first thing. That means up to 40 mins unpaid the company has from you. Happens on a regular basis.Also they do not like you to go toilet unless its in your break time. Bare in mind you cannot eat at your desk or get hot drink while on your shift.Job its self was ok

Under NO circumstances work at this awful company!
You are made to pay a deposit of GBP 250 for an iPad worth just GBP 30 at Cash Convertors,after two weeks when you get better at the job your commissions are cut in half,the regional managers are awful at the job betwen two of them they earnt just GBP 80 in one week so how can they train anyone?You are totally isolated from all other advisors with no-one to talk to,compare notes with or bounce off no team whatsoever.When you leave they don't pay you they still owe me money and I am taking them to the small claims court for payment,they ripped me off just before Christmas this is the worst company you have ever worked for do yourself a favour and just don't bother!

It started off well at first, the overall atmosphere was pretty good, but that has taken a very negative turn in recent years.
I can honestly say I have felt absolutely no motivation to better myself in my role within the company anymore, no matter how much effort you put in, improvements you made there was never a worthy reward in the end. This is why I left.
You continually get asked to take on more and more responsibility much above your pay grade with this idea that you will get a good amount of recognition for your efforts in your next review. Then your review comes, you sit down with your manager, you go through everything you've been doing, all the effort you've put in to be the best you can and continually improve, your manager agrees. Then they turn around and say, none of that actually matters as we can only increase your wage by up to £1000 a year.
It's very likely in this year that you've taken on enough additional tasks and responsibilities that you've realistically moved up to the next role within your team, but you'll never be paid that amount, you may even be offered a new title but it won't come with the monetary reward to warrant you taking it up.
