Wouldn't advise working here

Lack of training, when asked for more was told they wouldn't give it to me as they didn't have the staff to train me. So expected to do a job without training.Do not support office staff and lack of communication between people.Deduct wages without telling you and without a reason.If your face doesn't fit then you have no chance here.Also pressure you into leaving when poorly.

Pros

None.

Cons

All of the above.

Fun and enjoyable woekplace

Sharps is an enjoyable and fun place to work due to the style of work they undertake, there is a constant flow of work all year round. All the staff /management aswell as the head office are easy to communicate with and are always on hand to assist.They supply all fixings and other bits needed to construct furniture for them via a clever postal service to your home address. All material is delivered to site in the exact bedroom in which the furniture will be built. I would recommend sharps bedrooms to anyone looking to pursue a career in carpentry or in bedroom / office furniture in general.

Pros

All fixings and materials supplied, all material delivered to site, most importantly solid weeks work all year round.

Good for experience but not money earning.

I am currently working for sharps. The staff are very friendly in the office and my current manager is very helpful when needed with great communication. Hovewer, I wouldn't advice to work here unless you don't have other opportunities. They will provide you with work, but be ready to work for less than a ÂŁ100 a day most of the time.

Pros

Good communication, friendly staff

Cons

Long hours, low income

Skilled labour for minimum wage

This is a company that'll keep you as busy as you want most of the time, so long as your prepared to...... #1,travel wherever they send you within your region, (your not paid for the time spent in your vehicle, which could be 2-3 hours a day), #2, be prepared to work for an average ÂŁ150 a day before tax, often lower, as you'll receive a percentage of the customer order value after VAT. Jobs are often underpriced, (suiting the customer) leading to fitters having to work very long hours just to make a decent income. You will also spend a fair proportion of your time getting over poor quality manufacturing issues, survey issues & design issues, as the mentality amongst various departments is "oh the fitter will get over it", or "the fitter will sort it out", therefore wasting time. You'll need to learn the product inside out, (there is alot to learn). Training is given, albeit basic & not very thorough. A head for problem solving, getting over issues & damaged materials etc. is essential as you'll not get paid until the job is complete, no matter how long it takes. To sum up, you'll ideally need experience in this line of work. If you like working 12-13 hour days, being paid a pittance for the skill & care you put into the job, & receiving no thanks for 'going the extra mile' when needed, this job will suit very few people.

Pros

Screws etc.supplied, materials delivered to room.

Cons

Long hours, travel, unhelpful staff, low pay.

Decent place to work

Decent place to work at. All colleagues were approachable. The work/life balance was ok depending on the shift pattern you were undertaking at the time

The company doesn't look after their people

I work for sharp's bedrooms for a year as a carpenter . I do not think that they look after their people very well at all .The job is inconsistent and pay is very low for the job you have to do ....

A good company to work for

To get results you have to dedicate yourself to work to get the leads needed for the appointments. Sharps give the tools to achieve that. It is a nice company to work for I would certainly recomend it. Minimum salary but with commission and incentives you can get a reasonable salary

Dont do it

The work's ok once you get used to overcoming their frequent mistakes and wrongly supplied or damaged materials, but be prepared for accepting jobs that pay less than or around 100 pounds a day if you complete in the time they arbitrarily allocate for installation. You will have your good weeks, but then there's also the weeks where you'll earn less than half a good weeks pay. 3 and 4 day weeks are common if you're not prepared or unwilling to work 7 days a week. Be prepared to spend half a working day driving to and from jobs that are 130+ miles from your house with a pittance paid for fuel. No subsistence pay for staying away from family and no money for food while you do. You do get to claim back for a hotel or digs (Upto 45 pounds a night- good luck finding a hotel for that) which is repaid to you as gross salary so you pay income tax on it again before it gets back to you. Your Field manager will most likely be good to you and will make lots of promises and give you assurances to keep you going and make sure you finish that job but then come back and let you know that sorry unfortunately as it works out his hands are tied by the head office... The work is relentless, they're certainly a busy company but don't turn down any of the work they push at you or you'll soon find yourself not receiving other jobs, certainly not any well paid jobs. Incompetent office staff with arrogant and ignorant senior management add to your problems and will cheerfully leave you out of pocket whilst telling you it's just a 'rough with the smooth' situation and that it's going to improve, -

It pleasant and peaceful envirnoment

The Company is well organized with the designers and the show room appointment system whereby the sales then take place when the customers are satisfied with the design and the price quotation.

Pros

Use own initiative and support from Head Office

Cons

Need more customers on a daily basis to be more challenging and productive

Sharps Bedrooms

Initially started out well, team members were supportive of my role. Unfortunately, the role was to cover a few showrooms and due to business demand the locations became too far for me to travel.
