Digital Sales Manager in West Midlands

Used to be a great place to work
The culture at Yell has changed dramatically over the past 9 months and really wasn’t the place I could see me progressing.The management were so far away from reality.Giving the top sales people the coldest types of leads and expecting higher AVO’s is unsustainable

Stressful, difficult place to work
Unreasonable deadlines, high pressure and stressful environment. Job turnarounds felt really unreasonable at times and it seems that people are afraid to speak up about how awful the company culture is. Now I'm working full-time elsewhere at a company that cares I've realised how much I truly hated working here. Really would not recommend working here to anyone.

Listen to your gut and don't accept the offer.
Awful experience.There are some genuinely nice and under appreciated people that work here but as a company I've never worked in a worse place.The amount of work you're expected to do in a small amount of time is unreasonable, you're rushed through training and the management are blinkered to any issues.Promises will be made (but not kept), you'll work later than you think and you'll be hounded so much you'll be scared to go to the toilet! Lunch is timed. Breaks are timed. No leeway or margin for error. You have to take calls even if you're in the middle of a deadline.I really could go on. Trust me - don't bother.

Avoid. Extreme pressure - when I was there around 25% of sales staff were on anti-depressants, poor management and a culture of mis-selling. Company believed customers were not important, that there were other customers that would replace existing ones.
