    I worked at Comet Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good collegues
    good training
    good opportunities to move upwards
    overall not a bad place to work, a lot of tech to learn and sell
    commissions ok

    Cons

    really the worst thing about working here was the customers, who sometimes behaved apalingly, and management would back them up over staff. this led to a drop in morale. i eventually quit as a result

    Advice to Management

    please change management style when dealing with customer complaints and staff. staff should be listened to more when trying to explain what has happened

    I worked at Comet Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you can sell sand to Egypt you will do well, and progress, poor pay and conditions unless you want to give everything and live a monks life style

    Cons

    they want blood, ungrateful for the hours and commitment when you want something in return

    Advice to Management

    Staff want a life outside of work, staff have families and children they wish to spend quality time with... The stress you put up on your staff, leads to divorces and marriage break ups.
