Job isn’t as described in interview

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Hammonds seams to be a good company to work for however the job it’s self is far too quiet,the targets are impossible because you may only speak to 2-3 people in a day. Hammonds expect you to ring customers who have previously been into the store and entered completions to see if they would like to book an appointment,to me this is pushy Sales and not something I would ever be comfortable with doing.

Pros

Nice working environment

Cons

Pushy Sales

Slow and boring

To work for Hammonds you have to be used to a very slow day, maybe only seeing 2 or 3 customers. It would suit someone who is retired and doesn't want to do too much. You do have target aim for which at busy times of year like the January Sale are easy, but not so easy to achieve during the run up to Christmas.

challenging

Can be very challenging to work here as being based in a concession means your limited to space to work in. Expected to work independently more or less from the start with very little motivation and training. Management find it hard to understand it's hard to convince clients to give personal details such as phone numbers. Almost impossible targets depending on the season.

Pros

commission and fair breaks

Cons

expected to work 6/7 or more days with limited say, poor management, contracts can be terminated with little/no.warning
