    I worked at Verastar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hard to think of any

    Cons

    Just about everything. Say you will earn £70,000 pa, you won't Say you will get 6 qualified appointments a day, you won't. Say the appointments are qualified, they're not. You will be selling a product that is more expensive than pretty much any other provider so they will insist you 'ring the manager' for a better deal. He then offers half price line rental but forgets to mention that the offer is for 6 months and the contract is for 3 years. They sail very close to the wind regarding GDPR, for instance I was sent on calls to the elderly who had no recollection of agreeing to an appointment or why I was there. Finally, if the above is not enough, you will struggle to get paid even the basic £25 per line rental sign up. Not an ethical company. If you have bills/mortgage/rent to pay, do not touch.
