I have been working at Kinex full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Home time and nice people working there

Cons

Long hours 8:45-6, low pay, terrible old fashioned way of operating with just phones and data sheets, cold calling same old data that has been called over and over again, no hot drinks allowed, the list just goes on

Advice to Management

Don’t get young inexperienced cowboy managers that have not got a clue how to manage staff.

    I have been working at Kinex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great atmosphere to work in, the ability to earn as much as you want, also there is a good chance of promotion if you work hard and not working weekend or bank holidays as well as getting two weeks off at Christmas. as well as all the above there is the monthly motivators where you can win anything from voucher to a tv.

    Cons

    to be honest can not think of anything negative to say about the job.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing.

    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.
