Current Employee - Cable Jointer

I have been working at Western Power Distribution full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Salary car parking ppe working hours

Cons

You get paid the same salary as other people in your grade so there is no financial incentive to gain extra skills or be harder working then your Co worker as they can be lazy and get paid exactly... the same

Current Employee - Telesales

I have been working at Kinex full-time

Pros

Extremely caring and thoughtful during the covid pandemic. Having been put on furlough, I was expecting to just get 80% of my basic salary paid and none of my commission, but they have paid me my... basic plus an average of my last 3 months commissions every month. Nice to work for a company that cares about its staff

Cons

Never used to let us finish early on a Friday which was annoying but now then have changed it, so can’t complain too much
