I have been working at Hastings Direct full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Supportive working environment. Colleague friendly shifts in front line customer facing area. Free tea and coffee in the call centre, and a subsidized costa coffee and canteen. Lots of incentives to earn more, and a decent social life. Meals out with teams, and two annual parties, one at christmas and one in the summer.

Cons

If you dont like shift work, you have to adapt.

    I have been working at Hastings Direct full-time

    Pros

    Central location if you don't drive although a lot of people complain as no onsite parking. Development is quick if you are a favourite

    Cons

    Poor organisation, very cliquey, training inconsistent, poor pay, no parking, management have favourites

    Advice to Management

    Out of all the managers I would say only 1 or 2 are actually decent.
