I worked at Kinex (Less than a year)

Pros

Absolutely, categorically none. If I could give this company a zero rating I gladly would. The only regret I have from working here is that I didn’t leave sooner. Cowboys

Cons

Was there for no longer than 3 months and the culture and atmosphere is just shocking. Working 8:45 til 6 for rubbish pay, no kettle, no hand-dryer in the toilets, amateurish organisation, defaced data... Staff drink during the day, there is constant drug use and chat surrounding it and sexual discrimination towards the ladies in the office (management included). Job security is non existent. Avoid like the plague.

Advice to Management

Clean up your act, stop with the laddish banter, treat your employees with more respect and get rid of the what can only be described as cretins who infest the workspace.

    I worked at Kinex full-time

    Pros

    Fun working environment, plenty breaks

    Cons

    hire and fire job; they'll fire you after your first week if you don't get an appointment (reach targets) even though you're still in training

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire people when they're still getting used to the job role. You're wasting time and resources to train someone to fire them at the end of the week - give people a chance to get used to the role and get better at it.
