Awful job. Awful company to work for. No opportunity for staff to be given some kind of counselling or advice regarding the grief we endure from the people we have to call. This job severely interfered with my mental health and I dreaded going to every shift. I ended up in the toilet crying on numerous occasions due to the rudeness of some of the people I had to speak to. The managers just didn't seem to care about their employees. I am not the only one who feels this way. Biggest mistake of my life applying for a job at this hellhole. Leaving was the best thing I have ever done.
Pros
None!
Cons
Abusive people on the phone, overly warm office due to so many old outdated computers, bad managers, no break room

the job isn't bad however they mostly give zero hour contracts and hours are terribly unreliable, only recommend this job if you have a second as it is difficult to survive of the wages being so inconsistent
Pros
free drinks and great hourly pay
Cons
not enough work provided

They don't care about their employees - a lot of what they do is lip service to tick boxes and to show industry bodies they care. It's all about money and little wellbeing

Daily tasks to be resolve quickly and very accurate. I have been working on few projects: CORE Housing Applications was answering calls and sending emails within Service Level Agreement. Royal Mail Survey Reimbursements. This role required high attention to detail. Dealing with Western Union payments and calculation of reimbursements. I had to ensure the customer accounts were accurate in order to receive payments. My current role is within the Royal Mail project where I am multi-trained on various tasks within the team.

If you can talk and have use of a car and can create a rapport with people and you enjoy working outside this is a great job.The salary is good for the hours worked. However it may be difficult work going forward because of Covid19 as you are required to gain access to peoples homes

A lot to learn in terms of work but things are generally slow paced. 60-70% of the day spent in meetings. A lot of collaboration required as the organisation structure is a complex matrix one

Kantar has good work tasks and it is interesting however there needs to be more projects given to the call centre. The management have no clue what they are doing. Poor instructors of management other than provide stable hours.

It's a great place for job security but it was extremely stagnated. They don't encourage their colleagues to progress within their career, feels like being a needle in a haystack as it's such a large organisation. But it's a good company to have on your CV.

Work is relaxed, sometimes challenging, can be interesting. Colleagues are nice, management is decent overall, except for when they ask you to perform tasks that are not part of your job description and what you have signed up for, which is rare but still problematic. You are legally allowed to say no, but they give you cross eyes. They constantly try to manipulate you into working more for the same salary. The salary is criminally low. There is a culture of brushing everything under the carpet. HR complaints are often buried when it comes to abusive managers. I haven't personally had issues but I know of many people who have. The availability of flexible working, daily fruit, free breakfast on Fridays are all nice aspects and the work can be enjoyable with it rarely being hard or too stressful.

Fits in with family life and only takes up a few days in the month. Need to be quite mobile as job entails some walking. Interesting to see how prices vary and where our products/produce comes from. Annual training does mean we meet others doing the same job around thecountry.

Some callers would definitely make your day. This job really develops your self confidence, empathy and communication skills, and all the staff were very welcoming, while ensuring we stick to call times.

Great place to start working in London and meet people, but progression is very slow and you have to fight for every opportunity. Global company too so management lines and responsibility is confusing - perils of working in a matrix organisation.

From no where they stop to book you in. No notice. No explanation. Just no respect. You try to understand but they never give un explanation about how’s it going to be next week
Pros
Not bad pay
Cons
You can’t count in them. It’s not a job

Don't work there. Low salary, working till late evening hours, empty promises about pay rise or promotions, lies, constant pressure, lack of support from the management, no Christmas bonuses instead parties with unlimited alcohol (to help employees forget about their low salaries, perhaps?). Avoid this place!
