I have been working at Kinex full-time

Pros

Not many other than you'll get employed fast.

Cons

High staff turn over.
I started along side 3 people by my second week they were all gone.
Soon as new people start on your team, you'll get sacked.
Unless your mates with management or family you will be sacked and every little thing you do willbe picked up on.
Don't book hospital appointments or you will be sacked. Even with the letters to prove it.
If you don't hit your first target by the time they tell you to in your second week you will be sacked.
Management do no word atall other than sitting around having a laugh and doing what they want nipping out to mc donalds and other places for coffee and food then everyone on the phone gets it when targets aren't hit.
It is the worst job I've ever had.

Advice to Management

Keep what you want knowing you won't get sacked.
