Avoid at all cost!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Advertised as a ‘trainee marketing manager’ role, completely incorrect! They make you memorise a speech and send you out to go knocking on doors and selling double glazing. Avoid at all costs, just put the company name into any search engine and you’ll see how terrible they truly are.

Pros

None

Cons

Selling door to door

Awful place to work

They class you as self employed so that they can pay you a ridiculously low weekly wage. All other money is commission based. Constantly get humiliated by the management team in front of all colleagues. Wages are constantly messed about. You get sworn at by management and treated like dirt. You're either cold calling over the phone and are told to lie your way through the sales pitch or you're going door to door. Very long hours and can be made to stay late if you haven't hit targets. I have personally witnessed staff doing drugs on their desks and when reported to management they do nothing about it. Awful place to work. Wouldn't bother applying.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Long hours. Poor rates of pay. Awful management.

Door to Door

I applied for this job about a year ago i was a graduate and the job is advertised as a trainee marketing manager! it is not this at all the role is door to door sales knocking trying to book appointments. The pay is so poor and you barely get minimum wage if you don't reach unreachable targets. The idea of a trainee marketing manager to them is getting a door knocking team of your own that your in charge of. So basically you are a door to door appointment maker. This company and the way they advertise their roles is a CON!

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Door to door knocking!
