I only worked for this company for a few months but this is what i can tell you from experience:- Pros * The pay is AMAZING - IF you sell the right amount of cars! Sell 10 cars or more you go home with a grand plus in your pocket each week * They constantly watch your skills to see if you can be promoted to Management * Highly praised if you do well * Training is in depth and done well - if they see great potential in you, you will be buddy'd up/partnered with the top salesmen on the floor * Management really help you sell a car if they can see your struggling or if the customer is unsure. * Company Car Cons *A lot of Favouritism * No breaks allowed on Saturdays! You're expected to have a large breakfast between 7am and 9am and not eat again until you finish at 6pm. You will get in trouble if spotted off the floor by management. *You HAVE to work 6 days a week including Sat & Sun. You are only allowed 1 day off a week and it has to be a week day. * A lot of lies told to get cars sold * You only get the company car after your first 3 months - and then thats if theres any available for you to have!
Needs better management in the work shop I quote as long as it lasts the warranty. Bad work ethic pass the book when in the wrong. No idea what they are doing only good point is my team leader and my team try to do the right thing
Good team leaders
management have no idea
Only been at TCUK for a short while but early indications are very good. The management are fair and as long as you do your job well , you get left to get on with it. One criticism would be that annual leave is a bit on the miserly side.
Very poor management. Not able to pass on important information to HR or payroll departments in a timely manner resulting in pay issues. Workload is all about numbers - vehicles prepped were glued together and bodged in order to get it on the sales pitch as quickly as possible. Vehicles back on aftersales with faults still existing from prep or badly repaired on prep. Management and team leaders stroll about the place like prison wardens. They have no interpersonal skills or relevant training for their positions. I was pleased to leave.
You can buy one of the poor quality cars from them with no discounts and an inflated price
Work/life balance suffers
If you have a life then I wouldn't bother working here. No family friendly hours. No human friendly hours. Close at 9pm but you can still be there at 11:30pm and expected to be at work the next day for 8:45am. The money they say you can earn is a myth. If your likes your time there will be great if not then it will be hard for you. The tuen arians of staff is ridiculous.
Some great people work there.
Work every weekend, every bank holiday, only 1 person allowed time off each time, Managers threaten you with being sacked if you complain, Managers will bully people, HR does basically nothing, 85% of cars being sold are faulty
The only thing i can say that is good about this company is that you're paid every Thursday! the wages can be good sometimes, if you reach their ridiculous targets, if you don't then your bonus gets cut in half!! Management are the biggest joke going. HR do exist but are about as much use as a chocolate teapot. You will never win against these con artists as they protect their own management because they're only in the position because of who they know not what they know. If you want to work 6 days a week, every weekend, every bank holiday and never ever finish work on time.. then trade centre UK is for you.
Never finish on time, poor management, long hours and days.
The only good thing about this place is the salary, however no amount of money excuses the way technicians are treated by management. Staff are treated with a very poor amount of respect and constantly threatened with job security.
Poor management. No work life balance. Staff morale poor due to current workshop circumstances.
Nice workshop. Poor management, bad working standards, no respect towards employees. Expect you to have no social life and work loads of hours. Your nothing but a number to them.
Decent salary, weekly pay
Lack of respect towards employees. Bad management.
