    A hard job for those with a thick skin and indifference to the details.

    I have been working at TNS Global part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a casual position, you can change what days per week you work (with the exception of Saturday, mandatory with one other day of your choosing).
    The expenses cover is fair.
    Generally the people: mentors, supervisors etc seem reasonable and you are listened to more or less.

    Cons

    For a company whose sole business is to write surveys they cannot apply that practically at all. In fact the Random probability surveys you will be sent out on are atrociously put together.
    Given the emphasis in training on not insulting people of leading interviews, this becomes impossible because the 'Omnibus' surveys are so exhaustive and badly written you will cease to car about what is being said, which makes motivating yourself that much harder.
    Some surveys are complete nonsense and it is evident that services are being mis-sold.
    You have to be outdoors during the weather.
    Worst of all you can be working 10 hour days when things are not well organised, which has happened a lot in the last few months. Having to research locations and inform the police or your presence makes the preparation prior to the 6 hours needed to interview, with travel time easily turn into a very long day at distant locations.
    Having to inform the police prior to interview is a major hassle and not something incorporated into your expenses.
    The phone system was completely messed up and at times when returning a call from my mobile (through my voice mail) I would be taken to the offices of Millward Brown, and not the individual who called me.
    Generally very bad communication between departments.
    Very bad IT management, hence badly written surveys.
    Very poor performance related pay rates, a better rate or equivalent basic rate could be taken into consideration.
    Was told I would have the option of continuing with a day rate past the first six weeks, this didn't happen.
    Very unsociable hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the communication and don't screw people on the prospect of getting a regular pay when it's not going to happen.
