Display Representative in Kent
It’s ok, just left to your own devices and you don’t get paid if you make a mistakeI have only been here a few weeks, however I decided to leave . Regional leader was nice however left to own devices very quickly and if you don’t know the job the briefs can be confusing. Some of my jobs were only 15 mins on 2 occasions I didn’t do them 100% perfectly so didn’t get paid and had to go back, it just wasn’t financially viable for me and better off getting another job where you are guaranteed payment. Another occasion I was sent the wrong parcel and stock , was meant to complete the job by 11 am but the time spent walking round the store trying to see if it had been sent in etc made it impossible to get done for 11 or even start it, again didn’t get paid for this even though I turned up and did the hours. It’s a shame as could be a lovely little job , but needs more on the job training and guaranteed earnings.

Flexible role, lots of autonomy Nice flexible job, ideal for mums or those looking for part-time flexible roles. Company largely leave you alone as long as your jobs are completed. Opportunities for additional work.

Very flexibleWas on a temporary contract and they offered me a permanent one at the end but I declined due to university. I had a great line manager, and the work was very flexible. Only downside is the stores you were assigned to, some of the management there especially in Tesco's was awful.
Poor benefits and management You are expected to travel to different stores and no mileage allowance . District leader was very petty and appalling management skills . It is flexible to a point which was thd only real selling point . Not valued at all.

Not the best company to work forNo actual support from team leader or area manager, as long as all the questions are answered correctly. If not, had to go back, with my own cost and make sure its correct. I had a number of team leaders over the years, only met with one when I was employed otherwise any interaction was through phone call or email. There's no discount or incentives. They did provide me with a tablet but you have to use your own Wifi. They didn't pay for mileage or travel time- they have an odd term on mileage and travel time. I was travelling to multiple stores and the mileage and travel time added up but because they were my regular stores I didn't get paid for them. No route for progression. If they hire someone in your territory then they ask you to train them. You won't get paid extra for this. The team leader should be training the new employee. No proper training is provided. I learned most of the things by myself not knowing whether I'm doing it correct or not, I just followed the brief. I was there for a number of years eventually handing my notice in because they were finding faults in petty things and I didn't feel valued as an employee and my work meant nothing to them. They didnt furlough during Covid. I just took unpaid time off work eventually going back because i was getting bored and needed the money. I was just a number.
