    I have been working at De Vere full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to live in another country, albeit this can be short lived once you see the true measure of these people

    Cons

    Get treated like a dirt on arrival. Left to your own devices with little or no help. The deVere culture is Smash & Grab (sell the highest commission paying product, not what might be in the interest of punter). Working very long hours for little or no money. Devere don't pay salaries sometimes they give advance only if you have written business.

    This company is rotten from the top down, until this is addressed- forget it.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at yourselves in the mirror and count your fingers. You would never be orpine to say you've worked for deVere once you left.

    Interview

    The easiest interview, just making sure you can do very basic human motor skills and communicate with people. It was a very casual process and just sat with the manager and went to an induction day.
