    I have been working at Kinex full-time

    Pros

    Kinex in Leeds is a great place to work. It's a friendly vibrant office in a great location just by the town hall. Telesales can be a difficult role, but if you can do the job I'd recommend this place. The atmosphere is great fun with games and prizes every day. Good hours and plenty of breaks. Management are understanding and flexible and provide exceptional training and support. The pay is certainly reasonable...

    Cons

    Not many facilities in office, but it's in the centre of Leeds so it's no biggy.

    Pros

    Kinex as a whole is a great place to be! From the management to the workers there, there's nothing else I would look for in a work place :) The whole office environment is always positive where the team always works together and aims to come out on top. The managers will support you even when they have their own work to do and ensure we are the best possible version of ourselves

    Cons

    The basic wage for the hours is low

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing - we love it <3

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

    Pros

    - Great place to work if you love to feel depressed and sad. - It’s really nice when you work every day for months for a company, make then some good money and they drop you like a bag of crap.

    Cons

    - Constant bickering between management - No excitement about hitting targets / appointments - Shocking morals, will fire you for not making appointments in two days despite having a brilliant track record - Lie to all their staff about progression being available in the company - Higher up threaten to sack people on a daily basis including managers - Don’t accept anyone being sick, you would have to have broken every...

    Advice to Management

    Give your heads a wobble, this is not how you do business and treat human beings. Also, get with the times ie VoIP & cloud - businesses need more than your crappy landlines & broadband.

    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.

    I worked at Kinex full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work if you can do sales, everyone was like family to me. Great people in the office, great atmosphere and at times the best job in the world.

    Cons

    Even if the whole office is having a bad week management only look at you individually. Understanding if you've been paid all your comision is impossible due to the pay structure.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how much money people have made your company overall before you throw them to the curb after a few bad weeks. Everyone has ups and downs.
