    Pros

    Good money if you want no life.

    Horrible company. Management is the only ones looked after. Don’t care about other staff. Greedy. High staff turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff better, don’t be such a terrible company

    I worked at Connells full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can earn good money if you dedicate loads of time to the job

    Cons

    Shocking management, sales staff aren't rewarded at all for earning the company millions. They don't care about your sales, they now push for mortgage services and base your performance on that High amounts of people leaving over short periods of times because of all the issues in the company

    Advice to Management

    Reward your staff, tell them they do well. My new company take us out for meals every month, boat parties, holdiays and loads of rewards. Think of how you treat your employees and then you won't have so many people leaving each month because how appauling this "company" is run.

    I have been working at Connells full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you get placed in an established office in the area (still unlikely) you're set and the opportunities are reasonable.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? -Ridiculous working hours (57.5 Per Week) if you leave on time, which if you leave bang on 6/7 dependant on day, without getting everything you planned done, you're frowned upon. -No appreciation from anybody above domestic manager level (IF YOU EVEN THAT LUCKY). Weak self centred managers all over the company with no intention to better their own staff, just to improve their own figures regardless...

    I have been working at Connells full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A typical day at Connells is fast paced and dynamic. It is hard to get bored during working hours! The job is perfect for competitive individuals who enjoy working as part of a team but have personal ambitions. Connells has always tried to promote from within and recognises outstanding performance with rewards. While the line manager may be sat in the office with you, the area director for Devon is an ever present...
