    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 less than a year

    Pros

    Kinex is an excellent place to build your sales skills and develop personally in a fast flowing goal oriented career. If you have the belief in yourself and can more importantly be yourself then you can achieve great commission and a great starting salary.

    Cons

    The only limitations with this position lie with you, you are your only limitation! If you have the desire and belief that you can achieve then you will do well here!

    Advice to Management

    Everyone at Kinex encourage people to be themselves because everyone in sales has something special in them and this can only really be revealed by the individual and it is up to them whether they succeed or fail, and don’t be afraid to fail because every failure is one step closer to success.

  4. "Avoid!"

      Former Employee - Field Sales Representative in Ipswich, England

      I worked at Kinex for less than a year

      Pros

      None that I can think of

      Cons

      Read the employment terms. Says "Kinex do not pay commission to agents no longer employed by Kinex". Work for month maybe six weeks, get cast adrift and then not get paid. BUNCH OF SHIESTERS

      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

      Pros

      Amazing place to work, people in the workplace and really friendly and make time fly, working off paper means you don’t clockwatch. Ample breaks, great management, Wellington house is a great location as it’s in the town centre.

      Cons

      Sick days are a no go

      Advice to Management

      Explain channel bonus in more detail and how targets can be reached.

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Kinex full-time

      Pros

      If you are recruited as a self employed sales rep you don't have to go in the office daily to deal with all the fake BS pleasantries. You work according to your scheduled appointments. That's about the only positive.

      Cons

      Managers lie to you from day one at the interview. Hostile environment. I was a self employed sales rep with Kinex for two weeks. They promised 5 appointments daily, but the first day I got only one. The next two days had no appointments, then was lucky if I got two in a day. The in-house sales staff always looked stressed and terrified whenever I went in to drop off contracts because they had a daily quota for appointments...

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

      Pros

      I’ve worked as a Sales Representative for over two years. By far the most enjoyable job I have had. The management team are unbelievable at what they do. I get at least 5 qualified appointments a day. As long as I follow the steps to the sale I sell to every customer. The support and continuous on the job train is the best I’ve seen in any organisation. There is no limit to what you can earn and achieve in this role.

      Cons

      You need to be self motivated but I wouldn’t class this as a Con

      Advice to Management

      Michael, Joe and Matt keep doing what you are doing.

      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.

      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...
