      Pros

      Nothing it’s like being in school, bunch of two faced bullies. only want to be your mate to get gossip and spread it around the call centre. everybody gets in relationships with everyone.

      Cons

      Worst place to work, bunch of bullies. if you don’t fit in the click you’re a nobody and you’re pushed out of the business.

      Poor management and hard on targets

      Jul 29, 2021 - Customer Advisor

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly workplace and job satisfaction if you enjoy customer service work. Pay is reasonable for the work you're expected to do. Discount is also a plus.

      Cons

      Poor management and displacement of responsibility onto employees rather than managers. Hard on meeting targets and expect you to include too many offers for additional insurance and credit options in transactions

      Decent company to work for

      Jun 25, 2021 - Customer Service Advisor

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Staff are great to work with and management were flexible with time off as long as you gave enough notice (when I worked there, a few weeks was enough usually). There was also a 10% discount when I worked there which was great for buying new tech when needed!

      Cons

      The wage was pretty low when I think about it - when I was 18, I was earning £6.79 an hour, which was around the minimum wage for 18-20 year olds at the time.
