    I worked at CVS Business Rent & Rates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    free fruit but is that really a pro I can run to tesco myself

    Cons

    This is the worst place I have ever worked. The management shouts and threatens staff constantly with there job even when hitting targets. You are forced to work later than what is in your contract of employment which is a violation of employment laws. I was told by management 'you do as I say when I say' I eventually had to quit my job due to verbal abuse and constant threats. I would never suggest this job to anyone and witnessed many walk out due to the same reasons I left In the time I was employed there.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff like human beings and its a job not a dictatorship!!!

    Pros

    Free Fruit, if you can get it.

    Cons

    **Be Warned - All Positive Reviews are from current Staff**

    Constant, daily reminder that your job is on the line.
    Not being allowed to sit down until you get a booked appointment.
    Having staples fired at you as a 'joke'.
    Having contraced hours of 9am - 5pm but the hours actually being 8.45am - 6pm which adds on an extra 300 hours of unpaid work each year.
    You are given 'strikes' for using your mobile phone.
    You are only given a lunchbreak.
    Bullying is the ethos and mentality of the company in order to get results.

    Advice to Management

    This bullying mentality will be an issue in the long run, address it.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and a good bunch of sales people you work with

    Cons

    Company is ran like a dictatorship. A lot of our incentives haven't been paid out. Tell you it's a 9-5 Job, but its an 8:40 - 18:00 and you aren't paid for the overtime. Constantly threatens with our jobs,even when hitting target

    Advice to Management

    Treat sales people like people. Staff work best when they have some sort of job security so stop threatening us with out jobs
