Can be fun, but also hectic!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Extremely poor infrastructure and based on poor training and a "Get the deal at whatever the cost" and "do not leave the customer without a signed contract" very unethical sales technic!

Pros

If you have no morals, no scruples and basically a rip off merchant your a winner!

Cons

Long hours poor support and pressured sales technics.

Avoid Thomas Sanderson

The company itself has changed a lot over the time I was there and since leaving nothing good at all! The management are under qualified overpaid and often treat staff wrongly! They break data protection laws constantly and hound customers with calls constantly we are asked to remove customers number from the system but this never happens! They offer incentives but the winners were always the same or the prizes never materialised!

Pros

Friends who I met

Cons

Management CEO

Well structured pyramid hype

The training for this company is without doubt the best part of working for the company. (I realised all be it too late, that I was being sold to)But this is pyramid selling at its best or at best. There is no way that you can make a living working for this company especially in certain areas of the UK. In fact a lot of the customers are aware of the company system off calling the customer to offer a cheaper price after the sales designer has been. There is absolutely no pay whatsoever unless you get the sale on the day. Company offer absolutely no remuneration including petrol even if they get the sale after you have been.

Pros

Good training package

Cons

No sale, no wage

Management

The management could be more professional. The salaries could be higher. The opportunities to learn could be more. The benefits could be more. The canteen and break times could be better. The way of treating employees could be better. The overtime hours rate could be higher.

Pros

Very good at new methods

Cons

Hight production targets

not worth it

commission structure is terrible, good appointments are given to relatives of management across the country. you need to have extra income from another source to be able to survive there. products are beautiful but well overpriced and hard to sell. a high turnover of sales reps

Commission only hard selling job.

Hard sell culture with not enough appointments. Products although very good are overpriced and are well off the average persons reach. Training was very good but required a week away at a residential venue and because its a self employed commission only job its unpaid.

Commsion only

Good leads were given to the favourite staff. Traveling a long way with own expense of fuel for a waste of time. Products too expensive for most leads

Poor leads and no pay if you don’t sell.

If you don’t sell you earn nothing, no holiday pay or sick pay. The good leads go to people who who have friends in management, no fair distribution of leads, generally they will give you leads in less affluent areas, your self employed but work solely for Thomas Sanderson, another company avoiding paying pensions and national insurance. Avoid!

Dodgey

Targets, targets, targets. This company only cares about sales and numbers. If you don't meet them quickly your gone. Tense environment and not a nice atmosphere.

good pay - poor management

although the company looks after you with good pay, the management do not look after you as an individual, after working their for a long time and the skills I have learnt made me capable to do better things so they put me back to where I started. this job is perfect for a stop gap just don't commit

Pros

pay

Cons

no recogition

A Sinking Ship

Overpriced products, dated sales tactics and slow to embrace change. Management doesn't listen to its staff and they are treated like school children. Poor atmosphere. WIll continually preach "company values" but never in a million years adhere to them.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Job Security

Awesome income, horrific stability

If you want to earn good money with a company so ensconced in its ivory tower they still think their dated product is better than the competition, and who will spit you out in a flash then this is for you!

Pros

Great holiday incentives, great appointment system, good commission

Cons

Mileage, time slots, price, stability
