I worked at Verastar full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The days we were allowed dish clothes

Cons

I left this company under constructive dismissal after almost 4 years service. I have Tourette’s.

Just to sum up in a nut shell what this company is actually like.... I went to OH in December 2016 and they recommended a DSE. I chased over & over again and received this a week before I left the company in February 2019! The excuse they used..... we have been in back log.
This is just a tiny fraction of what goes on at this company. I could write for days!

I am astonished that this company are winning awards....

I was asked by senior management to make animal noises for there entertainment despite my disability being involuntary.

My mental and physical health suffered working for this company.

No sick pay & then get penalised on bonus for being off sick.

Advice to Management

HR don’t bother with the please contact us it’s confidential and we’re concerned - been there done that. It’s not confidential, you are not concerned. I have all the paperwork to back that up.

    I worked at Verastar full-time (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!
