    I have been working at Safestyle UK full-time

    Pros

    The best thing that I Found about working for Safestyle was the Staff at Branch Level.

    Cons

    Too many Politics at Head Office with very little support. You have to know exactly what monies you are owed but even then "mistakes" with your commissions are frequently made. They promise 3 x Appointments each and every day but the most I ever received was 5 x Appointments in a week. Most weeks would be 1 or 2 and always last minute with a good hours drive.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the Politics and be more truthful when recruiting and training your Agents.
