    Pros

    Great training. All expenses paid plus salary wage. Manager role not hard to achieve if you do show interest.

    Cons

    SALES Managers are absolute rubbish. Young and inexperienced regional and area managers but it is understandable considering the wages for those positions are not as high as in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Hire area sales manager that don't just talk the talk but walk the walk. Also I would recommend cameras in branch for staff safety not to mention the fact that 75% of your employees steal from you.

    Pros

    Sunday off, Standard Mon - Fri shifts with every other Sat. Really nice bunch of people in the branches. You have a good laugh. Some managers are great and in particular a few directors that worked there way up the ladder in HSS, understand your frustrations.

    Cons

    You must answer phone within 3 rings and say YES to every order. The company sadly doesn't have the resources to fulfil customers needs. None of the staff are listened to. You responsible for approx. £50k worth of kit on your own, but yet your till is down by £5 and you get disciplined. (That needs change) Lots of YES men in the company. Promises are made but not kept. Pay is poor but is pretty poor in the industry. Stock availability for customers is a huge problem. You are not backed by customer services when a customer complains.

    Advice to Management

    Too many micro management practices. Lose some of the "policies" that are set in stone. Better incentive, since we are at the forefront of customers needs. Invest money in kit that is needed and dismantle a pretty catalogue.
