Sales Advisor in Bexhill

Pressure to attain high targets
At times chaotic production problems. Customers left waiting for products. Middle management pressure for higher figures while HO offer large discounts on products.
Senior Management in South of England

Stressful, average salary for very long hours, forced to work weekends to complete office tasks, disgruntled workforce
Highly pressurised management position, constantly undermined Average industry salary for working in excess of 70-80 hours incl weekends on pcLack of support by senior management, opinions not valued & workload impossible Fellow management too scared to say how they really feelHorrible 'clique' culture exists, if you're doing well they'll talk to you if your face fits

Very stressful
Fitters constantly missing fitting appointments and irate customers who have taken their old curtains down and a day off work. Management don't care.

Lifestyle job
I am a Design Consultant with Hillary’s and have been in the role for 2.5 years. The hours can be long, but I run my own diary, so it’s my choice if I work several 11 hour days in order to work 5 hours on a Friday!! The products are excellent, the company has a well regarded name in the industry and I enjoy meeting people and discussing their needs. The rewards for being successful are excellent. There are negatives. You need to be able to motivate yourself and be confident in working alone as there is very little support from management. Communication in all areas of the business needs improving significantly to improve the customer experience. Overall this is one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. I’m my own boss and enjoy every day.

Don't work for them
It's not a job. You pay them £2000 to work for them. They give poor training. Drive you mad. Only pay 8%. When they have a sale you have to swallow the discount. This is not a job. It is a franchise. No employment benefits. 60 hours a week, and you might make an ok living. They fine you for mistakes. Even if the sales person has written down a wrong colour. You will pay.I have been in this business for 30 years. They are awful stay away

They don't. They are selling hillarys, they don't care what you do or say, why would they as you are paying to work there.
