    Current Employee - Sales Advisor in Glasgow, Scotland

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

    Pros

    Great pay for an entry level job not requiring a degree etc Ability to make up to £400 per month in bonuses Great benefits like free Sky, Christmas gift, food on occasions

    Cons

    Soul crushing Customers can be really horrible as in any job but you get a lot of them in succession Everything is recorded and monitored and it feels like you’re being spied on and if you’re not absolutely 100% perfect at everything (and nobody can be) you’ll get pulled up about it and interrogated about how you think you could improve Can be demeaning - customers and management So many people I know developed anxiety and depression working there, dreading the next call coming in If you had any time off sick you had to have a “back to work interview” to find out why you were off, if they can “support” you or do anything to help etc but it’s actually a pretty intimidating process and although they say the right words everyone always felt like it was an interrogation and to try put you off ever being absent again

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

    Pros

    Free sky! Amazing staff deals!

    Cons

    Long long hours, not easy to hit target, dirty offices

    Advice to Management

    There should still be some incentive even if you don’t hit target, the commission /sales conversion is based on the amount of calls you take even though some calls could be the wrong line! They advise that you should turn 90% of calls into sales but it is tough on a quiet day with calls which are supposed to be for customer service. Then that’s a downer as you don’t hit target and it puts you off
