    5. 3.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Pros

      Can’t knock the training! Really helped show you different ways of introducing negotiating tactics in the desired skills for the job. The social side of things was fun.

      Cons

      Management… where to start… Well, much like in some forms of recruitment, it’s all based on commission and sales, so expect to be worked your socks off! Again, much like recruitment, the turn over of staff was consistent which made you question why as some staff were competent, but you could see they felt over worked. The area managers where a little stuck up and were not supportive of their staff. I must say though that not all managers were bad as some were great at their jobs and were supportive of their progress in their team. I guess in some cases it’s pot luck! But there is a power trip for some management. With the relationships between staff… I swear it’s like a mediocre wolf of Wall Street… the stories you hear and then find out… it’s like, keep it in your pants!
