    I have been working at Brightwater full-time (Less than a year)


    Excellent training for new starters. Hard work and professionalism is rewarded. Above average salary and bonus structure for the Industry. Management are easily accessible and there is an ‘Open Door’ policy which is adhered too. A great culture of ‘team’ and sharing which is rare in the world of sales and targets. As a new start I have been welcomed warmly, trained well and it was made clear what was expected of me from early interview stages. If you are a true sales person that is professional, enjoys getting stuck in and can learn quickly I believe you will flourish as a consultant here.


    No ‘cons’ per se more a ‘heads up’ - if you are the type of person that wants to float through your day and just get by doing the bare minimum I don’t believe this would be the Company for you - although really if that’s the role your looking for then Sales is not for you either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brightwater (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2016.


    One of the recruiters from the company gave me a call and told me about the opportunity. They explained the details over the phone and invited me to their office for an interview in like 3 days. People in office are very welcoming. The Interview was very relaxing. They were very nice to talk to and they made me aware of all the duties i'd have to undertake if i was given an opportunity. It took about 35 minutes. No technical questions were asked. Mostly it was about what i already know about the role and how different it is from that, my interests etc.
