Terrible company

Awful to work for classes as self employed so they can pay you nothing, the managers are psychopaths and threaten physical violence if you complain about no pay

Pros

None

Cons

No pay

Nice people to work for, but feel I've been misled.

A day in the life of a Foot Canvasser I post leaflets to home owners.I can choose when I work, and working alone, is low risk during the pandemic It's daily exercise,out in the sunshine. It's far better than being in an office or shop with delegated shifts My manager is a nice guy. The job itself is fantastic, and my friends envy me. But there's things I wasn't told at the interviewI was told that it was weekly pay, one week in hand, guaranteed for the first seven weeks only NO LEAFLETS TO POST FOR 2/3 WEEKS AT TIME EQUALS NO EARNINGS!At the interview I was told that there is the opportunity to progress. IF I HAVEN'T GOT LEAFLETS FOR MYSELF, HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK?This could have been a really good opportunity, and it is such a shame.

Pros

Choose your hours, exercise in the sunshine, nice people to work for

Cons

No leaflets, no earnings, and after the first seven weeks, it's commission only

Not productive

Working at Safestyle was a bad experience as my payments were always late and Safestyle still owe money to people even after leaving the company. The staff in Safestyle Wolverhampton are rude and unprofessional.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Long hours Delayed payments no payments rude staff unprofessional

Best job ever

Since lockdown was lifted ive been earning more money a week here as a canvasser than a lot of ppl earn a month. It's not easy work but if you work hard you can go far and have a lot of laughs and banter along the way. Now just been promoted to aca

Pros

£700-£1500+ a week. Great banter

Cons

The weather

relaxed but competitive

working with safestyle was exciting as a driver but was hard aswell trying to pick your team up when they live allover the city and then start to earn your act money when your out in the field. hardest part about job is trying to get customers on door to actually make a wage

Stay away from this company - be warned

Without a doubt this is the worst place I have ever worked. As others have said on here all the managers are manipulators and will say anything to keep you there. It is advertised as a driving job but its cold calling. The advert says 400-800 per week but you will be lucky to get £200. All you do is make others richer Question everything and trust no-one. Stay away from this company!!

worked like a dog

well I learnt a lot working here, there is potential to earn money here as its commissioned based, but as well theirs the risk of earning nothing. very random and disorganized but that may appeal to some!

Poor

In the interview didn’t get told what I was doing till I got there which was a course also the pay is really poor unless you get certain amount of leads which is only £40 a lead which you didn’t get unless a sales member goes to the customer door also expect you learn everything within a couple of day and staff was leaving every couple of days but would be good for for someone young where can learn the trade but if need money for anything not enough to be made

Canvasser

Worked for the company for over 10 years now , seen alot off changes for the better I must say ... safestyle have grown bigger and have gained a better reputation since i first started The job is a simple job where if you take advantage off training listen to advice and have patients you will gain a good stable salary The only down falls about the job itself is that your in competition against other company's and safestyles old reputation witch doesn't scrub off well with customers that have had bad experiences The window and door options are great and alot cheaper than other comparison company's If your thinking about joining safestyle then just take my advice and be patient for the big wages , take every bit off advice and turn yourself into a lean mean booking machine 😎

Pros

Banter, good money

Cons

Wrong results on leads

Official response from Safestyle UK

3 September 2019
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review You are right that there have been a lot of changes but for the better. We are working hard to shake off the perceptions of the past and to rebuild our reputation in a way that better reflects the Safestyle of today. We all have a part to play in that and if we work together we will succeed and show the world that double glazing can be professional and provide a good living for people whilst treating our customers fairly.

Rubbish

Absolutely disgusting, staff are rude, start at 9 and finish at 8 and not on hourly pay so you don’t earn anything and if you do it’s not a lot I would not work of safe style

Cons

Not hourly pay, commission only £40 per lead

Fun outdoors, if you can't master it, it might be the worst paying job

The job is great for especially teenagers that still have protection of household being supplied by family which leaves them being able to learn the job greatly while still earning a bit on the side. If the job is for you and you can master it then quick promotions will head your way allowing you to earn possibly the most realistically without any grades or achievements in school. If you can't though it might be worth to skip on it after 6 weeks or so because that'd be my recommended time to try it out and see how you handle it. You can't have a negative attitude towards this job because that will directly affect your attitude to possible customers and leave you with even lower wages.

fun

fun but purely commission based. wages were never enough. men and women were kept separate and it wasn't very professional. I would go back here. I was only young when I did work here.

Pros

free breakfast

Cons

commission only
Was this review helpful?

Commission only pay

Worked for safe style knocking doors trying to sell windows commission only pay so not a stable job if you have bill to pay but if you still live with parents ok for pocket money

Pros

Freedom

Cons

Pay

a great place to work

safestyle was a great company and I learned a lot about customer service while I was here. it is a very relaxed atmosphere. you can come and go as you please while working on phones so if you decide you want a quick 5 minute break you're not questioned. as long as the work is done and you're hitting your targets

Pros

freedom

Cons

the lead sheets are very outdated, some going back 10+ years
