A typical day was quiet especially in recent years. The staff were multinational, which was good as you learnt some of the language. The management was rarely seen, and most feedback from them was negative. Targets were set too high, and unreachable, even though staff did put this to management, which they ignored. The best part of the job was meeting different nationalities. Staff were friendly to work with. Would I recommend Moneycorp CFX Ltd as a place to work? absolutely not.
Meeting many nationalities
Essentially paid minimum wage to do shift-work, either 9 or 12 hours a day, starting as early as 3am and finishing as late as 11pm. I was under living wage age, so I would train new employees and they would be paid more than me from the beginning.
Over the years it’s become more difficult to be competitive at a airport, with the senior management determined to squeeze everything out of the business and workforce resulting in unhappy customers and over stressed staff. What was once a happy and productive team turned into a me me only culture.
Hard work and effort gets noticed
I would recommend a graduate role at moneycorp as when that person moves on they will have a good idea what a slow paced old school corporate is like to work for, which should help them understand the wider picture for must UK business.
The way how employees are motivated and whole ideology of this company is just feel WRONG. UNETHICAL! I was told that the job role will be firstly about customer service, where you can provide service beneficial for both sides. NOT IN MONEYCORP! Maybe it's just me, BUT I CAN'T JUST PROVIDE THE BEST FOR MY CLIENTS when I know they are being ripped off.
Moneycorp isn't a bad place to work the pay is poor 15,300 to 16,900 it's minimum wage plus commission if you can get it. Commission is based on team sales and hitting team targets not individual sales performance I myself have earned £25 in commission but lost it because the rest of the team that didn't hit their sales targets. But the sales team is amazing and I miss them all
Micro-managed to incompacity within the Accounts team. Sales role but you basically have a script to read to ensure you hit full marks on your one to one's. This limits your actual Sales skills. No support from management who are only there to ensure you do work, no experience in the role so wouldn't know the job you're doing is actually correct. Would not recomend anyone to join unless necessary!
Compare it to the salary( minimum wage) you have too much responsibilities, they are keep pushing for targets. Very early starts, or late finishes, no extra payment for Sundays and bank holidays,no proper place for having your break, and the bonus is almost never paid, because the whole terminal never hits the target. I was very disappointed. I wouldn't recommend for anyone
Worked here for near on a year. If you want a job where your treated as a school kid and am bored half the time then this is the job for you. Can do lots of over time but will only pay you normal pay which then the tax man takes most of it. Say goodbye to a normal sleeping patten, social life and your weekends as they will go out the window. Ive never been in a job where management is so poor and treat their employees so poorly. No really communication with management, you air your concerns and they do absolutely nothing about it. Your collegues make the job and is the only thing that make you go in. For the responsibility and tasks given you are paid so poorly. Commission can be ok but when its quiet you get barely any. Not a career nor any real progression here.
The colleagues you work with.
Too many to list
The shift work is hard, but once you get used to it it's OK. The people are great, made many friends from this company. The culture is good, and you can earn big cash on the incentive schemes. Some people can pick up £800-£1,000 per month if targets are hit, and even the lowest ones would be £150 - £200 per month extra. Management are good and sup[port you when you need it. Shifts are often flexible and can be swapped if you need time off.
Good way to gain experience for a school leaver or for someone who is at there end of working career and looking for part time work. Unsociable working hours due to working at the airport.
Gaining Experience for young people, or if your looking to keep busy after retiring, or looking for part time work
Working Early shifts
A highly politics driven culture, where hard work and commitment is not recognised. Promotions/demotions/redundancies are made based on connections with Senior Management and staff who merit recognition are typically overlooked. Very few benefits offered to staff and very little flexibility to encourage work/life balance. The atmosphere in head office is very tense and sombre- a distinct feeling that staff do not enjoy coming into work. Governed by a culture of fear which forces staff to have to comply with policies. High staff turnover which causes disruption and a less than efficient day-to-day run of the business.
Absolutely none that I experienced
Shady culture, highly politics driven, high staff turnover
Day to day we deal with the public so no two days are the same. We have different products to sell and are pushed by management to sell as much as we can. It is a reasonable company to work for but the pay is not great. The people are what make it worth coming in, it is a great team to work with. Hardest part of the job is achieving targets, there is a bonus scheme to give you the opportunity to earn a little more.
Bonus scheme for good sellers.
Single rate for overtime and bank holidays
