    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I couldn't give less than 1 star unfortunately

    Cons

    After being made to drive around most of East Anglia in my own car at my own expense I quickly realised that I wasn't getting paid for the majority of the sales I completed due to 'cancellations'. I ended up quitting and was asked to work a months notice. I agreed until they started sending me on wild goose chases. And then refused to pay me for anything as 'agreed in their terms and conditions' signed when I... started (TIP: READ THE 'CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT CAREFULLY!). This company cares nothing about it's sales people. There are far better propositions than this shower out there. Please don't become another sucker!
