    If you work incredibly hard (and get a bit lucky) you can make money.

    Cons

    - Awful work atmosphere - Training was minimal, no effort was made to help support new members of staff - Base pay is barely enough to live on the first few months when you don't have some sales under your belt, and car allowance is nowhere close to covering how much money you spend driving around.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great Team in Thame Very Professional Great Competitiveness

    Cons

    Minimal Commission from Sales from as low as 3% of company’s fee Long hours (however this is part of the job and not really a con if you can hack it)

    Advice to Management

    Increase commission, especially you are making the company good money and reward good salesmanship at all levels.
