    I have been working at Verastar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only been in the company a couple of months but so far I have loved working here. My colleagues are so friendly and made me feel welcomed from the off set.
    Typical day is starting at 8:30 finishing at 5:30, fruit and coffee is included which is always a great benefit, my manager has given me support throughout my journey.
    My job includes calling businesses that already have our custom and offering them additional services, which can be a challenge but that's sales & part of the job which is what I enjoy.

    Cons

    The starting salary could be a little higher, although there is chance to progress to earn more (plus your commission)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Verastar (Northenden, England) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First of all, a telephone interview takes place to confirm some details and get the company to know a little about yourself. If successful, you are booked in for an interview at the office of your best available date and time. when in the interview you are asked about past jobs and sales experience. The management are very welcoming and friendly and show you a little about how the office works and what products are sold. in the interview, there are a series of job roles which are available and the interviewer will select which one is best suited to you upon experience and characteristics. The job is explained in detail with description of career opportunities and progression.
