      Pros

      Rewards, incentives, pay, career progression, security, 100 % job satisfaction. To name a few. I started 7 years ago with no sales experience and am now a branch manager showing how far you can go with the right attitude, SCS has given me life changing experiences and opportunities I could only of dreamed off. I truly enjoy my work and every day look forward to getting in the store, they can provide the path for a successful future with the right determination and focus SCS really is a job for life.

      Cons

      The hours can be long for management however the pay and rewards can certainly out weigh the long hours.

      Pros

      None really ,ok maybe the staff if you work in a friendly place

      Cons

      everything else ,hours ,commission is pitiful ,what ever you do dont sell carpets you would be lucky to earn £20k pa ,probably equates to less than minimum wage ,dont think selling sofas is much better ,dont do it ,go and sell cars instead ,proper money for proper sales people .If you cant sell for toffee probably a good place to work if your expectations of life are very low.Will soon be joining DFS as another sinking company or certainly deserve to ,no social life and very long hours ,all in all sadly better off on the dole

      Pros

      None Ha asked me to write at least 20 words in this section. What a joke of a company this really is forcing you to write something positive oh my days really is laughable

      Cons

      Treat staff like rubbish if your a driver stay away long hours treated like rubbish lied too. If your an agency worked stay the hell away from this place. This company thinks it’s acceptable to let there full time staff just get off home because they want to go and get drunk and leave a new starter stranded. No health and safety regulations anywhere to be seen. Vosa would have a field day here. No transport manager to speak of. The left hand from the right hand doesn’t know what they are doing. Vehicles are dangerous to drive.
