Commission only hard selling job.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

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

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!

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

If your face fits.....

be weary before joining this company. If you are flavour of the month, they will really praise and encourage you. But soon afterwards they like to move people on as quickly as possible under the guise of a restructure.

Pros

Salary was good

Cons

No job securtiy and bad management

double glazing sales techniques

I worked as a sales designer for this company. The products are good. Unfortunately the job involved calling somebody who was not in the room so that prices could be dropped. Basically double glazing sales rubbish. If they can take £10,000 of you for a job that they could sell for £2.000 they would. This is actively encouraged within the company. And phone support, as they call it, is compulsory when working for this company. Basically ripping off vulnerable people with overpriced blinds. AVOID. Do not work here unless you are a double glazing kind of sales con artist. Also do not buy from this company as they are overpriced. If you do want to buy, ask them for a price list. They will not be able to produce one because they make them up. I have worked in sales for over 15 years and this is not proper sales, it is ripping off people with over priced goods if they let you. This company is just a bunch of chancers. They try it on with staff by not providing a car or salary. They try it on with customers by overpricing to find out what you can afford to pay.

Pros

leaving

Cons

rip off sales techniques, bad management, long unsocial hours, no salary, no car or expenses towards costs, have to use own computer, phone, email. Just a bunch o
