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

    Pros

    Home time and nice people working there

    Cons

    Long hours 8:45-6, low pay, terrible old fashioned way of operating with just phones and data sheets, cold calling same old data that has been called over and over again, no hot drinks allowed, the list just goes on

    Advice to Management

    Don’t get young inexperienced cowboy managers that have not got a clue how to manage staff.

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

    Pros

    Working weekdays (no weekends or bank holidays) but I lasted 2 weeks before they fired me.

    Cons

    Very long Hours (been forced to work a 45 hour week no option for 37.5). Was lied to about the commission, you can wait 2 months to get it as you only get it once the customer had had the product for 30 days. Little training (5 hours max), thrown in there at the deep end when no experience in Telesales or call centre environment what so ever. Forced to lie to customers,...

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

    Pros

    Worked at kinex for a few months and absolutely love it. Wake up every morning looking forward to work because the staff and managers are always buzzing and up for it. The turn over can be high that’s because people turn up with the wrong attitude. Commission structure is good and can’t believe how easy it is turn earn money, would recommend this to some one who like lad earning money but want to have fun at the same...

    I worked at Kinex

    Pros

    None, none, none and nil

    Cons

    Long hours 08:30 until 6:00 some unpaid, there is no training given, office is too small for the amount of people that they employ, there is no time given to settle in and if no bookings are made then they get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    Give you employees more time to settle in and give them more training.
