    I have been working at EE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A really good company that supports it's staff with physical and mental health problems. An abundance of incentives, rewards and discounts. No one day is the same.

    Cons

    Not really much to say that's bad about this company. Some customer queries could be dealt with more efficiency and better policies and some management methods need more consistency as we can be a little too rigid with policies. I applied and was successful for the CUSTOMER service role... however there are sales targets and these are unrealistic. I cannot sell and to me it's unethical to try to sell an additional product to someone who has missed payments and is clearly struggling with their current bill... it when a customer calls to query their bill and we are expected to promote additional products to then! Then we are made out to be under performing when out NPS scores come back low somehow it's the advisors fault!

    Advice to Management

    Back off the hard sell and the tough sales targets for customer advisors. One of the values is number one for service. How about concentrating on actual customer service and not sell sell sell or as you say 'promote'!!

    Sales Advisor-EE Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EE.

    Interview

    The recruitment Process was very quick for me personally, you apply online completing an online application. If you are successful they send you an online assessment to do, it is an easy process that will test your judgement and customer service skills, the questions are not problem solving but reflective of real life scenarios that take place within the store. If you do go onto the next stage you will receive a phone call from the EE team, asking a few questions for example why did you apply to EE? What is something that you would bring into the store?
    Straight after that I booked an interview that lasted for an 1hr consisting of various role plays where the interviewer would pretend to be a customer that need assistance. You are given 3 mins to read of a sheet that contains information about the customer and what they would need, and 3 mins to answer and give them an action plan that is suitable for them. The sheet has bullet points at bottom of the page that will help you with your answer.

    The experience as a whole was very pleasant and easy, I was hired exactly 2 weeks from the day I applied online. The most important thing to remember is okay to be nervous in the interview as long as you be yourself.
