Really enjoyed working for zenith in the warehouse department. Quite a fast paced area to work but as long as organised very good place to go to work. Nice and relaxed good relations between staff and management.

They have ceased to trade which is no great shame as they encouraged you to lie to customers. They were a rubbish company to work for or buy from and only cared about themselves.
Pros
None
Cons
Awful people.

I was only there for a short time. Worked part time only done 4 hour days. Had to hit targets when ringing customers. Management were ok, struggled to hit targets once or twice. Soon as I got the hang of it it was all good.

If you're good at sales or a quick learner you can make a lot of money and progress quickly. Management like to have a bit of banter so the office is fun and quite relaxed. You will be on the road quite a lot and will work some evenings and Saturdays, but the more you work, the more commission you will earn. Training is regular and management clearly have a lot of experience to pass on, so it's a great place to learn sales. If you're prepared to put in the effort you should do well at Zenith. Additional incentives can be good too if you do well as a team or individually. You just need to get used to earning variable pay each week.
Pros
Commission can be great if you can make sales
Cons
Some appointments are in the evening

You were only paid if you sold things. You would be on your feet for 8 hours a day knocking on doors asking people if they wanted to buy windows. Only the odd person listened and almost all declined.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

I had a lot of fun unlike majority of other employees Due to the fact that they did not enjoy challenges and expected an easy pay week in week out. New employees were included nearly every week and it was typically younger staff leaving as they “Had enough” and quit. The reason I left was due to my College starting again.
Cons
Long hours walking.

Working at Zenith was okay, the people we worked with were good and the environment was great but the work itself was very long winded and often was for no reason. We had to go door to door and try to give people quotes on home insurance products, we got £50 per person that took a quote but it could be very hard to do so so often you would go to work for a full week and come home with nothing.
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
Long winded

Do not work for this lot of cowboys. Their selling techniques should be on Rogue Traders. If you feel the you can steal monies from your granny then you would fit right in with this company
Pros

The only positive thing about this role was the training given on the course. As soon as you enter the real world you are forced to take advantage of elderly, disadvantaged beings and anyone who is blind to the fact Zenith are con artists. I happened to achieve good targets and commission however left on the grounds I was still owed £2500 in commission after 2-3 months. They expect you to live on nothing, struggling to fill your car with fuel, yet achieve 2-3 sales a day. Work life balance is non existant. Stay clear if you love your family and have an ounce of self pride.
Pros
Training
Cons
Long hours, late or no pay, bad attitude, greedy
