What Employees Say
I have been working at Mccurrach full-time for more than 8 years
Good first step into Sales, depending on DSM depends whether your experience is good or bad. The role in itself can be very demanding depending on the Brand owner you work for. I enjoy the role and... made some good friends both at TM level and senior.
very poor pay - 16 - 18K A car that is tracked 24/7 365 days a year, even at weekends, so if you let your partner drive be aware the car is still tracked and any offences you will be responsible... for. They have recently tightened it up, to a zero tolerance, so if you 31MPH in a 30MPH zone it will red flag to your line manager, your allowed 3 offences in a week before going on a disciplinary, so you spend much more time looking at the speedo than watching the road. The MAP course is great but a conn, your expected to do the role of a DSM for 12-18months on a TM salary with a 10% responsibility payment, so you can end up managing people who have been with company longer and are on much higher salaries. There is also no guarantee you will be signed off as a grade 2 at end of the 18months, I know DSM's who have been development for nearly 2 years. This is dishonest and unfair as your expected to pull in the same results as a fully fledged DSM. Also with the new process now every MAP candidate has to go for an interview whether they want it or not, I have had interviews for DSM roles where it is clear they already knew who they wanted but had to go through the HR process so I felt my time and prep was totally wasted. There is now so many people on MAP the opportunities are so few.
Advice to Management
Forget the ALL Map candidates must go for interview especially when some are more commercially minded and have no interest in managing people.
