Excellent place to work

Been here 12 years and wouldn't change any part of it. The company has changed a lot over the years and all for best. Fantastic management structure, Fantastic staff - A company like no other!

Safestyle, lying con-men and compulsive lairs

After your inadequate training your left to fend for your self. I sold very well at safestyle and the commission 2 years ago was half decent. Now if you factor your hours and expenses mainly diesel there will be 6 year olds in Indonesia doubling your wage. The price of safestyle windows have gone up 30% since I started and the product is still a 13 year old window. The management they employ would struggle to get a job at macdonalds. There all lying, manipulative dregs of society. All paid crazy money and do naff all for it. These criminals will offer you the world and give u jack all. There are hundreds of smaller companies that don't treat you like utter horse poo. And will not like and cheat you out of your hard earned commission. Also if you do go say bye to your family coz your not gona see them no more.

Pros

Literally nothing

Cons

Long hours, inferior product, lying scum, less thatn minimum wage.

Window Salesman

This was a door to door sales man role selling windows to the the public. The best bit was working with a team. it was a challenging role. Hardest part was being out in the cold.

productive and fast paced enviroment

During my time at Safe Style I have learnt to be more motivated and hungry to push my self. The hardest part of the job was having a bad day on the phones and letting it get to you but if you learn to have a laugh with the job then you can do it.

Pros

free lunch hours

Cons

no basic salary

Cons

The best job i have ever had

The job is tiring and very hard. It was the best job because I had learnt so much, would continue working for them if not for the compensation is the only source of income and not to reliable with bills. The management and team are amazing hard workers.

Pros

Amount of things you learn

Cons

not constant pay

Day to day

Overall at my time at safestyle I found the job its self fun as the people I worked with was all kind and just because I the fact that I like selling. But the one bad thing about the job is how the money works, because you never know how much your meant to be getting paid and you don't know if your being under paid with I thought I was on a few occasions

Pros

free food on some lunch breaks

Cons

money

A joke and they should be shut down

Went for a job as a driver and got told the driver job does not exist. Got talked into being a sales rep and promised a minimum of £1000 a week. Went for training and after the week I was told that the position was self employed. My family and friends told me to walk away but I was convinced it was a good job. I really should have listened to them. The job is a joke, the management is a farce and any job website that advertises their products should be ashamed. Please, if you are thinking of working for this joke of a company, think again.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

The whole company!

Positive work atmosphere but failing in job production

Typically I'd turn up to work and mill about for an hour or so before work commenced. There was a communal pool table so that was pleasant to break the ice. After we played a few games we would get in to our groups and head out for the day.
