    I have been working at O2 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay for this field of work is good. Work colleagues are generally a good laugh. Not too stressful.

    Cons

    Management will either be amazing and really guide you and give you tools to succeed, or be rude and do nothing all day every day.

  7. "Classic sales job - not as progressive as they think"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
      Doesn't Recommend
      Neutral Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at O2 part-time

      Pros

      - Discounts on products - Company at large seem to be forward thinking (doesn’t trickle down well)

      Cons

      - Just another cutthroat sales job -no integrity, I refused to serve a customer because she was drunk and the assistant manager swooped in and sold her a tablet and sim even though she wasn’t in a good mind to make decisions

      Advice to Management

      Stop rewarding sales only, champion customer service like you claim
