    I worked at Verastar full-time

    Pros

    Weekends and bank holidays off, some really friendly advisors. Pizza Fridays because who doesn't like free pizza?

    Cons

    How do you expect customers to be happy when the managers treat the staff like absolute scum? Obviously it's going to reflect back to the customers because they don't want to be there. Equality and diversity is a complete myth in the place, let your weaknesses show once then prepare to be harrassed, discriminated, victimized and bullied by your manager... HR department are an absolute myth, report a problem and...

    Advice to Management

    Close down and cease to trade. Better yet, have a look at your management especially and tell them to get off their high horse, stop using their position of power to bully people and actually make it a decent place to work. But to be honest that would be ignored anyway, just like the high turnover issue which is probably costing you guys more than you make. Im looking to set up business next year and under no circumstances...

    I worked at Verastar full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Money can be amazing.

    Cons

    Poor management. HR department on its backside, all bar 2 are stuck up their own behinds and unapproachable. They support senior members off staff rather than all. No customer care. Sloppy selling. Poor selling is a culture and encouraged down the chain of comandment. All about numbers on the board rather than selling correctly and keeping business for as long as possible. Numbers of customers speaks for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    None because they do not care.
