    I worked at Verisure full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of your schedule. The potential of a decent salary with hard work. A good laugh with my team

    Cons

    Some hours end up being unsociable. And like every sales position, a lot in the pipeline can end up being zero. You only get rewarded for your results. The commissions structure was very confusing. Also a big no if you dislike cold knocking on residential houses every evening. Sometimes feel like you are misselling a product to people who would be relying on that product

    I worked at Verisure full-time

    Pros

    Horrible management! – delete Security Consultant (Former Employee) - Bristol - 18 June 2020 I had a terrible experience with the manager from Bristol office. He never respected or treated fairly any his employees. He tries to brainwash them to compete between each other and generate hate at the office. He also uses fear at the office to scare the employees with example If you don't do this you will ended up loosing your job etc ... He used to shut at me all the time. I am not saying all the managers are the same. FYI The only good review that Bristol office has was done by the manager I will recommend HR to look into this abusive behaviour because this is only a 5% explanation.

    Cons

    Too many to put all of them in here

    I worked at Verisure full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    great training and friendly mentor the sales team is extremely friendly and helpful giving tips on how to do better and achieve targets. The HR department is great always looking into making workers feel better. The commission is decent as long as you hit targets.

    Cons

    All the work you do is based on cold knocking, very rarely conduct cold calling and you're only given two warm leads maximum per month. This makes getting sales and hitting targets even harder. Be prepared to work long hours. Work-life balance doesn't exist here, your day is structured so that you conduct 3-4 hours of cold business knocking then you take a break. after your break you conduct 3-4 hours of residential knocking. your installations are scheduled at 6 pm after you finish your cold knocking. installations can take between 2-5 hours depending on what is requested so you could finish at 12 Am. Within your first week if you do not make a sale you will get fired.

    Staff at my branch have went out there way to help the newbys settle and the info and training given is more than needed to do the job well can't fault any of them

    Cons

    I'm not sure there are any cons things could have been done different to make learning thei role easier but rapid growth of the company means one on one coaching is impossible
