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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Changing workspace, Never the same thing twice

    Cons

    Promise you good pay, but ultimately do not deliver Do not pay for petrol

    Advice to Management

    Do not lie in the recruitment process when telling applicants they will receive six appointments a day when in fact they revive 3-4 max, when I left the company one manger even told me he did not like the way people were recruited into the company

    I have been working at Kinex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great atmosphere to work in, the ability to earn as much as you want, also there is a good chance of promotion if you work hard and not working weekend or bank holidays as well as getting two weeks off at Christmas. as well as all the above there is the monthly motivators where you can win anything from voucher to a tv.

    Cons

    to be honest can not think of anything negative to say about the job.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Kinex full-time

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, good quality support, the South Manchester office is a great place to be. Heading back to university soon and I'll miss the place.

    Cons

    The vending machines are geared around high-sugar, high-fat foods and it'd be nice to have healthier alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    More staff engagement from senior management. They're out of touch with reality.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues who go out of their way to help you and make all new staff feel welcome. Even the managers themselves are easy to get along with. It is a small office with a team of 8-12 sales agents. Office games are played at the beginning of the day and after lunch. Bonuses are achievable if luck is on your side.

    Cons

    Unrealistic targets are expected. You're expected to cold-call at least 250 businesses and at times the techniques used by Kinex are unethical such as lying to people. None of the calls are recorded for quality or training and I've seen Data Protection principles ignored many times by managers. The hours are long, 08:45 to 18:00 with 75mins of breaks. During the day, there are many obscene topics discussed which can be...

    I worked at Kinex full-time

    Pros

    Thorough and on going training Career progression available Everyone is so friendly From the person next to you to the managers who run the place there is a genuine drive for the same thing and that is success.

    Cons

    In my experience at Kinex I never had a bad word to say about the place, I think more recently the pressure has been upped but that is to be expected in any business wanting to expand and grow in the capacity that Kinex is sure to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, make the right choices in recruitment and brace yourself for what is coming (English market).
