      It was good for a part time role.

      Pros

      Everyone was friendly at the beginning. Okay colleague benefits. Adjusted hours to fit with other obligations. Bonuses when care plans were sold.

      Cons

      Pressure to sell care plans on products. When leaving colleagues were less friendly. (I was a temp so that’s not too bad.) Incredibly dull occasionally. (During covid, so it was going to be less busy.)

      Overworked underpaid

      Pros

      No one else wants to work there either so colleagues get on well

      Cons

      Insane amount of unachievable targets where you a threatened to be fired if it reached even after years of working there. Management dont care about staff only about figures Minimum wage job but expected to work wonders and are under enormous pressure to sell insurance and add ons

      Could be worse

      Pros

      Sales role was pretty easy. Got to go to several trade shows to learn about new tech. Overtime was always available due to lack of staff.

      Cons

      Huge pressure to sell care plans and broadband services. Management was hit or miss depending on who was on. Colleagues would actively avoid sales in certain departments to keep their KPI numbers up. Always understaffed.

      Pros

      You meet some good customers and staff

      Cons

      Far too many targets Too many managers doing absolutely nothing 1 day induction where you are told virtually nothing Pay is diabolical, it’s really poor The pressure to sell Instant Replacements & Repair & Support plans to earn you 50p in commission, is a complete joke! Too many cliques within management Some staff using deceptive methods to get daily store targets! 30 minutes unpaid lunch, yet Carphone employee’s get 1hr. 10% discount is really poor!!!
