Financial Accountant in Bexhill, East Sussex
I've only been at Hastings Direct for a week but already feel well settled. Everyone has been really friendly and I'm looking forward to working with the team.

Can be stressful
I joined in the renewals department, interview was fine, initially training was good, but once you went into the office, there was a very big lack of training and support. The recruitment process and initially training painted an unrealistic picture of what the job would actually be like. The job is pressured and stressful, they constantly monitor you and there are a lot of targets and stats to meet, and unfortunately they name and shame you if you’re not hitting the targets. Hard to build any relationships with colleagues as you are literally on the phone all the time. If you want to go for a job here, you have to be very resilient and very assertive as giving the customer the “hard sell” will be required of you. I wouldn’t recommend working here.
Fraud Investigator in Bexhill
Horrible job, no humanity is aloud and you have to just follow a script. As for advancement, I asked and asked even spoke to a member of the highest bosses, yet still nothing, even after I was told I would be a good candidate to progress.

I have never felt more welcomed and encouraged in the workplace. The management are always pushing you to be the best you can be, with multiple, clear paths of career progression available. Applying for a role within Hastings Direct was the best decision i have made.
