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

    Pros

    Great rewards if you make a lot of sales

    Cons

    Huge staff turnover Poor treatment of staff Clear drug use by a member of management leading to an aggresive and uncomfortable atmosphere Coldcalling business to business til 6PM despite the majority of businesses not answering between 5 and 6 (complete wasted hour, every day)

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the cocaine Finish cold calling at 5PM not 6PM

    Lovely people to work with Nice atmosphere

    Cons

    No security whatsoever They make you write positive reviews If you're ill they wont let you call in sick and fire you if you dont come in Outbound cold calling to businesses tjat have been spam called for years by them I was meant to receive 12 days notice and was fired on the spot. When i mentioned this to the branch manager i was told "no, thats notice you need to give us, not that we need to give you". I went...

    Advice to Management

    Give your staff more chances rather than expecting them to be exceptional sales people after a day and a half training. Update your system, using paper sheets that you buy from a 3rd party with people's numbers on them and using a phone is no where near what should be being done in 2019 Stop rehiring people 2-3 weeks after they have been fired. It shows that you need everyone you can get. Dont have an area manager...

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

    Pros

    Fun, lively environment, managers and colleges always motivate each other to do well and improve, they are willing available to help you out if you're struggling. Working around positive people More than enough time for lunch and breaks in between. Games played to keep everyone motivated throughout the day. Really good commission structure, lots of money can be made easily Reasonable targets

    Cons

    Working hours are 9-6, rather than 8-5 as the last hour of the day most business' you are contacting are closed so less likely to make sales in this hour.

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

    Pros

    If I had to write at least 20 words for the pros of working here, which I do. The only one I can think of is that they give people with limited experience a shot.

    Cons

    Three hours training and told to get on with it. I was there three days and let go as I only made one sale. This is not a company that cares about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upfront information about their training and what’s expected of you, wouldn’t have taken the job if I’d known I’d be sacked after THREE DAYS, despite showing enthusiasm and a willingness to learn

    I worked at Kinex for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely, categorically none. If I could give this company a zero rating I gladly would. The only regret I have from working here is that I didn’t leave sooner. Cowboys

    Cons

    Was there for no longer than 3 months and the culture and atmosphere is just shocking. Working 8:45 til 6 for rubbish pay, no kettle, no hand-dryer in the toilets, amateurish organisation, defaced data... Staff drink during the day, there is constant drug use and chat surrounding it and sexual discrimination towards the ladies in the office (management included). Job security is non existent. Avoid like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act, stop with the laddish banter, treat your employees with more respect and get rid of the what can only be described as cretins who infest the workspace.
