Pros

company car and a handfull of decent people

Cons

Very long hours ignorant managers and old fashioned culture of psychological torture to get sales execs to meet targets. I was there for a couple of years and the only people making decent money had been there for ten years. When I took the job two years ago the basic salary was £8000, which is probably the worst you could get. They recently doubled the salary but only for new people starting, the current staff were not given pay rise, which is probably illegal, Anyone know? I left because they started employing people with no experience giving them twice my salary. Most of your wages is commision so when you have a bad month you dont get paid much.

    Decent money if you can put up with not having a life.

    Cons

    Managment treated employees as dirt. Agressive sales/ managment staff Lieing to customers. Time off frowned upon. 6 Day weeks, 60+ Hours. Few Breaks. Made to sign a waiver to opt out of the governments 48 Hour work week LAW!

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with more respect. Reduce working hours and sales staff might be willing to work harder.
