I worked at United Carpets full-time (Less than a year)
There are absolutely NO Pros to working at United Carpets
Toxic working Environment
Bullying attitude by Management (specificallly the Financial Director who regularly shouted at me (and other staff) in front of other members of staff.
Poor work / life balance
Incredibly cavalier attitude to the Franchisees, some of whom had sunk their life savings into the business, but treated like second-class citizens.
After I left, they undertook a "pre-pack" administration to save themselves from the obligation of paying a LOT of money to landlords etc.
Advice to Management
Treat staff and franchisees with a LOT more regard, a lot more real management and stop treating anyone who is not a Yacht owner in Marbella with contempt.
