Does Sky have a pension plan?

Pros

Thorough interview process; online questionnaire followed by a video assessment. If successful invited to "experience day" which consists of group exercises, scenario questions and 1-1 interviews. Following this induction is 2 week training at the head office in Osterly, amazing experience with an insight into Sky and everything it has to offer although training is only half relevant to the real job which is stopping traffic and essentially sales. You have to enjoy retail to love this job, hours are unsociable obviously but with a great team this is one of the best retail jobs I have had, (been in retail for 7 years). Pay is great + commission, staff are friendly and welcoming. Management do not micromanage but check in weekly, they do not demonstrate how to pitch and you have to find your own feet and will only monitor your performance and provide advice where they can. Great perks, free Sky + discount in hundreds of stores with pension plan, gymflex and den plan etc. All in all best retail job by far, staff currently working here have on average been there for 5+ years.

Cons

As a new starter management do not stay with you to coach or buddy you up, you are expected to find your feet. This can be daunting no matter how many years experience in retail you have.

Advice to Management

Provide practical help on stands with pitching, spend more time on stands rather than the odd hour a week to check in on staff. Team building exercises would also be a great benefit as there currently isn't anything.

Cons

Many layers of stakeholders to manage. Plans can change very quickly so it's important to know how to adapt fast.
