    Negative Outlook

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your business model. Probably worked 10 years ago but you are way behind with pricing, service and harassing people on the phone for appointments.
