Terrible

Horrendous. No morals or decency. Exploits the most vulnerable in society without regard for personal circumstances or common decent human empathy. Truly an immoral company. No regard for anything other than profit. Totally geared to the exploiting vulnerable people.

Not for me

Interesting company. Do what we say, not what we do. My experience was not good from my very first day, not sure why I stayed. Talking to others it seems it depends on the location and local management what your experience would be like - best I leave it like that.

Stressful

Employed at Marston Group Ltd. The UK's largest judicial services group. Providing a debt recovery service for a variety of clients (HMCTS, HMRC, the CSA and Councils). Using I.T. systems effectively for reporting, recording and analysing information alongside a dialler system for taking inbound and making outbound calls A working week would be from 8am - 8pm Mon - Fri and 8am - 4pm Sat. The day would start and the calls would pick up fastly, often 60 in the queue throughout the day. This was the typical day.

Terrible management

Awful experience. 5 years working for the company only to be pushed out after an injury sustained whilst on duty. Appalling and disturbing management style

Bunch of cowboys

Pay the lowest commission rates in the industry. Pretend to be an ethical company but are only interested in defrauding vulnerable people. Management protect unethical Enforcement Agents with high collection rates at all costs.

20 years ahead of my age group

Worked for marstons for 3 years. Management is great there always theee to help. Training was top level and the uncapped earning potential has made me 20 years ahead of my age group now owning 2 property’s and able to take my partner out of work to become a full time mom. Interesting job with no 2 days the same. Chasing criminal fines does attract some trouble but with the skills marstons teaches you you can handle and calm any situation.

Pros

Un capped earning potential. Great management

Cons

None for me

An unpredicatable job

There is no typical day. Everyday is different when dealing with all types of social groupings of society. One job could be aggressive and needing police assistance and the next job could be getting offered a cup of tea. Management don't really get involved in your job. They tend to be focused on stats and getting the performance figures high. It can create a high pressure environment, it sometimes is good to have the pressure but sometime you feel undervalued and just a part of a process. The potential to earn is uncapped so very driven people can earn a lot. And the flexibility to book time off is good for people who have other commitments (albeit it could see the management replace you just as easy)

Pros

uncapped pay, flexible work

Cons

long hours, some days are just miserable

Productive Workplace

I enjoyed working as part of a team. The management were supportive towards individual needs of the customers and employees. The best part of the job was being able to help vulnerable people in their times of need. At times it was very challenging. I learnt a lot within the workplace as the management often put the staff forward for new qualifications at their request.

out on the road

It is a hard job and rather dangerous as one is knocking at doors of customers that owe money. One also has to enter visit on the tablet and follow up if no reply.

Pros

work when you like

Cons

self employed

Competitive

My skills involve dealing with the public from all walks of life in person negotiating payments of arrears plus executing warrants on behalf of local authorities and magistrates and a huge number of clients on behalf of The Marston Group. Dealing with difficult people and situations. I am adaptable, honest, reliable and resposible and able to work in the field alone or within a team.

Pros

working alone
