I worked at Kinex full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Young sales reps are keen to learn and friendly atmosphere they create is fantastic

Cons

High pressure sales, clueless management, disgusting treatment of customers and staff and an outrageous staff turnover.

Racist and prejudice employment 'rules' and justifying it buying saying 'Shaka Hislop was an ok Goalkeeper but was never top drawer was he?' is not only racist and illegal, but laughable. there is evidence of this and is currently with authorities.

The fact they have 17 year old running an entire office with zero management experience tells you enough you need to know about this company. They have their telesales agents working on dogeared sheets of paper that they call data in a boiler room environment, which they seem to be proud of.

the reason why this company changed its name is because it was fined by ofcom for miss selling their products and nothings changed but the name. Still the same second hand car salesman managers 'looking after' their teenage telesales staff who either get sacked for having one bad week or only stay long enough to realise the imaginary brass rings of decent money and progression are exactly that, imaginary.

Absolute farce of a company.

Advice to Management

have a long hard look in the mirror.
