    I worked at JD Williams full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible holidays Some great managers Relatively easy Not terrible pay

    Cons

    Extremely repetitive. Standard for an outbound role. You find pitches and techniques that work best, and you repeat them. Commission is almost a scam. You lose the lot if your returns are over 50% The average company returns are 60%. Targeted on literally everything, including toilet breaks

    Advice to Management

    Change your commission structure to make your best advisers stay.

      I worked at JD Williams full-time

      Pros

      Learned a lot of work related skills from other co-workers, location is good since it was in the city centre, met a lot of nice people.

      Cons

      A bit muddled with their management, the office layout felt like a call centre.
