Not for the faint hearted

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
All the building blocks are in place for pro active ambitious sales minded individuals to achieve alot within the company. Unfortunately since becoming PLC alot of the benefits, and incentives to strive in this sales environment have radically been taken away and there are far too many changes to pay structures too frequently to have any financial or life style stability to settle in long term unless you are fortunate enough to get offered a set salary.

Pros

Nice company cars fun enviroment

Cons

long hours unreliable pay packages

not worth it

it says between 400 and 800 a week but the chance of u getting over 200 a week is almost none. u get £40 per deal (if it goes through). most peoole do the same as everyone n just say 'not interested' and close the door, but the staff in the office will pester you to get that specific person to open the door. the extra incentives are not worth it either £10-£20 extra cash in your bank or given to you in hand if you meet a certain criteria. the chances are you'll either not meet the criteria or they won't give it to you.

Pros

n/a

Cons

long days. no basic pay. management

Market research/Sales

As part of this role, I was responsible for finding and booking new customers. I was able to use my initiative in offering discounts, as well as my excellent communication skills to secure many new sales. I took a particular interest in learning about the business model and marketing strategies which make this company successful.

Pros

very good commission

Cons

none

Driver

My day generally starts at 09:15, picking up colleagues from their homes, taking us all to the office for morning meetings. These meetings cover the previous day business and what they expect for current day. We usually leave the office around 11:00 and travel to our location. which range from Bristol to Reading, Worcester and Salisbury and anything in between. I drop my co workers off in areas to enable them to do their job, which is knocking doors trying to promote windows and doors. I either have a break or drive around other parts of the area, locating suitable properties for the boys to knock later. Between 3-4pm the boys will have break so I pick them up so we can all lunch together and I take them back to their property after. At the end of the day I collect the team and take them home and finish myself, depending on the day, I can finish any time between 6-9pm the latest I've got home is 22:00. Because of my title, I'm responsible for the team getting to work on time, their safety by keeping car well maintained and getting them home safely. When the Car Manager is off I will take control of the team and make the decisions on where they will be knocking, who gets out where, I will also receive all the calls from the office. The hardest part of my job is pleasing everybody who is in the car for instance one may want to finish early or have an appointment, which isn't in the area we are working, therefore I will either need to make a decision on where we will be knocking that day or bring them home and go back for the rest of the team later. The most enjoyable is - 

Pros

The worst company I have ever worked for.

It was stupid long hours, on average I was doing 50 hour weeks. You have to register yourself as self employed so you have to sort out your own tax which when I asked the people I worked with about it they just laughed saying they've paid their tax. Everybody smoked in the office, I could go on but I'm going to stop before I get to carried away.

Pros

there are none

Cons

everything about it.
