    I worked at Kinex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff get on loads

    Cons

    Seems to be a playground.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sack people when they make appointments for you as appointments are the main purpose of the job even if they ain't for tomorrow as immediates.

    And don't lie to people interview about how you will train them to the fullest and do naff all when they start as you only help your favourites who have worked there for a long time.

    In addition to this playing stupid singing games in a circle or playing cricket at start of shift takes alot time which could be used on the phone to get leads/appointments!!!

    I have been working at Kinex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team building games, incentives, positive atmosphere, daily training and bi-weekly progress reports, great staff, young workplace, three daily breaks and decent pay for a sales job (in comparison to just commission), good bonus & commission structure too, sometimes getting to leave early on Fridays if all your targets are met

    Cons

    If you don’t make appointments or deals for a few days you risk being sacked despite what you have done before

    Advice to Management

    To be more lenient with new starters - people have literally left secure jobs for this and been sacked from too high expectations in the first week.
