I have worked at DBS since October and have made many friends here, I do enjoy coming to work. There are big rewards but cash and other, but you must put the work in. The job role as an energy analyst can be stressful and repetitive, but it is also fun if you make it fun and have the right attitude. Training was good but I felt for some people could be worked on to help them transition into the role. Management are fair and experienced, and are always there if you need any aid. Overall I would recommend DBS to anyone who has the motivation and drive to succeed and work hard, as the rewards show. I look forward to see what has to come with DBS.
Cash rewards, fun environment, aid from management.
In training this job is made to seem all fun and games and being on the floor would be a big laugh full of support. The management is absolutely shocking, the managers care about nothing but lining their own pockets and if you weren’t in the top 2 performers on your team you may as well be invisible. You’re pulled in and out of meetings threatening your job if you aren’t performing to the top standard and bringing in thousands in commissions. The overall managements are just as bad, the managers and the directors even some closers make everyone else feel belittled and small like they’re more important. The ‘progression’ in this place depends on how friendly you are with the directors rather than being based on talent. AVOID
Good commission scheme
fun place to work. My results were impressive relative to KPIs. i felt intimidated by the ops and his attitude towards me
As DBS were not willing to support me regarding school runs they advised being 3 minutes late 3 times in 2 weeks as a direct result of juggling school runs as a single father the only reason i was 3 minute late on these occasions, add this to the fact I use public transport i felt more understanding would have been apt considering these factors have other similar situations. i would assume, there are staff with child commitment that will have support
Great, atmosphere, among agents
An ops manager at the time was intimidating and openly rude, bad practice promoted often, made to feel intentionally inferior by then ops manager
Went for an interview, which was a sit down and laugh. Interview stress kicked in while dressed in a suit, the interviewer relaxed in his jeans.Had a look around and first impressions were good. Loads of incentives etc. Read the contract and nearly fell into their foam pit laughing. Needless to say, I turned down the job and would strongly recommend anyone considering this place, to read the contract.....
On the surface looks amazing
Contract suggest they take all you earn + a bit more
I applied for this job because of the life changing amounts of money you can earn in commission but my life changed the day i walked through the door. The directors have thought of literally everything to make it a nice environment and its reflected in the staff. There are targets, as with any sales roles but management will help in anyway they can as will anyone else on the floor. There's always good banter which makes the days fly by and with early finishes as well, it doesn't feel like work. Everyone wants a job like this, so it is pretty competitive but 100% worth it.
everyone is lovely, the money, work/life balance
If you're prepared to put the work in and prove yourself the rewards can be substantial. Supportive learning environment with strong work-life balance.
Amazing benefits (health and dental), socials and fast-paced, fun and supportive work environment.
Can be stressful as target driven.
If you are target driven and can hit your targets this is a brilliant company to work for , the work life balance is brilliant with no weekend work, and lots of incentives to hit targets. The hardest part of the job is the amount of rejection on the phone but if you can take that and bounce back you will fit right in.Most enjoyable is the camaraderie between colleagues, who are willing to laugh at themselves as well as others.
Free Fruit/ tea/ coffee etc
Demanding position but lots of on site training beforehand and during work. Great rewards for success. Some great activities during the working day including early finishes for company hitting target.

Fast paced sales atmosphere where the days fly over (especially with the 4:30pm finishes everyday) and the rewards are plentiful. Life changing commission structure and excellent career progression opportunities. A business where hard work and talent are recognised and rewarded. The owners genuinely care about the staff and go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy and enjoying work. The industry can be tough at times but if you come in and work hard you can pick the career path you wish to go down.
Love working here as lead gen,so much support from everyone Bonus is unbeatable in the northeast.. Everyone has been in my shoes as a lead gen so no one this there better then you, Look forward to coming into work everyday which is something I can say ive never done before.
A constantly evolving working environment, where every day is different. From the 8:30am start to the 4:30pm finish every is always positive and friendly throughout their working day. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in my time within Direct Business Solutions. this has been achieved by ongoing training, coaching and mentoring from staff at all levels. The first company where I have ever seen the directors get involved in all areas of the business. Who have put so much time and effort into staff and the business itself. Work life balance is amazing with a Monday-Friday work pattern working no weekends or Bank Holidays, and getting the Christmas week off.
Great basic wage available, Great Commision Sturcture, Free Tuck Shop, Great Hours, Suppotive Staff, Great Environment
Great atmosphere between everyone that works here, everyone is approachable and friendly. Directors of the company get involved on the floor, are approachable by any level of staff. Support staff are brilliant and support with anything needed. Great commission structure and incentives ran near enough every week! Great hours and a general good vibe.
Great company and directors to work for.
Ring customers and try and get their business. How to converse with customers to get the best deal for them. Applied a lot of pressure to reach targets. You had to reach targets or you would be finished. The challenge
Didn't get commission the month you made it.
