      Decent commission, No work-life balance

      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.

      Dont bother!

      Pros

      Nothing nice to say at all

      Cons

      Back stabbing, lies, bullying, untrained management that dont have people skills, 16 hour days (even though it states in your contract 9-5) so wave family life pit the window, you dont get a car, they say all expenses paid (again not true only 20 per sale and that's just for petrol) they over glorify warm leads (they say they give you 10, only give you 4 and all not guaranteed sales and you are given a headache if they aren't sold) you aren't given a phone so you have to give your personal number to every Tom d*** and harry, 99% materials needed to do the job aren't available, uniform isn't brand new so you'll be wearing some BO infested clothes (literally) not given an ID badge when you first start and expected to walk into peoples homes and sell (this is illegal). Theres lots more to add but I'm not wasting my finger tips on Versiure. So if you want all the above and you're very sure, then go ahead. Otherwise OVOID. Go and find somewhere that pays better then £900 PM and threats you like a normal human being.

      Pros

      Free time ill give them that and some of the people were and have turnt into good friends of mine outside the work place oh and their Christmas parties are great

      Cons

      The product is good in theory but in practice its rubbish the door magnets come off which then means you have ring up your consultant to come back and fix it (time consuming) Its not a loud enough alarm. Its a 3 year contract with a high monthly which makes it to hard to sell. The management are a joke. Your pays always a problem. Their a bunch of con artists. They say they help you with warm leads but you hardly get any and the ones you get dont know its a monitored system and never want it they want CCTV not in home. sometimes you could be out all day then get a lead for 8pm you could then be out till 12 if u sell not good if you have family. They tell the customer their getting a discount when its already really the price were giving it to you at so when your going to the leads you already feel dishonest. To be honest with you if you want to work for this company you dont value yourself because they (the management) dont value you and thats not the kind of company that you want to work for its as simple as that.

      Pros

      Brilliant lads to work with, the coaches are really good, pay is decent. ONLY APPLY IF YOUR EXPERIENCED IN COLD CALLING

      Cons

      Recruitment team lie to your face. Promise you company car, or 110 fuel allowence, don't get none of that. They couldn't even sort me an ID card out after 3 months. Training just teaches you the product nothing else, there's way to many staff So don't expect the warm leads your promised. Oh and if you do get a warm lead they Are mostly offer CCTV which they can't provide only indoor ones that hike up the already ridiculous monthly costs. Or they don't know that it's a monitored system to begin with. Then if you do get a few dodgy warm Leads you get banned from them,. So your out doing cold calling all week . Which isn't what's said in training.

      The absolute worst job I’ve ever had

      Mar 24, 2019 - Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The actual system itself is quite good

      Cons

      Job advert was absolutely full of lies, they claim you get 60% warm leads ( trying to sell to people who have expressed an interest) when in reality you get none and any that do materialise are taken by team leaders or employees who have been there the longest. They claim on the advert to offer a company car, company phone and iPad, none of these are provided. The job is almost only door to door sales to businessesall of which have been pestered by Verisure so they don’t want to speak to you because the sales technique of the company means they have probably already been visited 3 or 4 that week. Team leaders lie about the amount of money they earn and what is available, the commission structure is a joke, the job advert states that you get commission on top of a basic salary, in reality if you exceed the basic salary in commission that is all you receive. No real training is provided ( like they said there would be) three pointless days training where nothing of any use happens and then you get sent out with people who don’t want to help you because they want to keep their own commission.

      Team Leader - Brighton

      Oct 5, 2018 - Team Leader in Brighton, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I worked for the Brighton branch from January 2017 - July 2018, I met some fantastic people both colleagues and customers. The branch manager Michael was amazing, he was extremely supportive and involved in the day to day running of the branch. The company has some great ideas and there is potential for promotion early on.

      Cons

      The biggest problem with Verisure starts from the Territorial Managers and above, they have extremely unrealistic targets and attempt to force sales staff to follow a script of telling potential customers that they are from the marketing department and they want you to display their deterrent signs and there is no cost to you (there will be). They try to get you to stretch the truth about their service and change "special offers" on a day to day basis. You also have a teleclose department who will call you warm leads (company generated lead) 72 hours after the appointment, meaning majority of the sales staff begin to push too hard or even lie just to close the sale there and then! I absolutely loved my job as a Team Leader, but I could for see the negative changes Verisure was making and decided to leave. I truly believe the senior managers are just too stubborn to change their ways, no one can be this blind about what's happening! I'm surprised the shareholders aren't asking more questions!

      Shambolic lies!

      Feb 2, 2018 - Security Consultant in Sheffield, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Hard to think of many; free hotel if your travelling a fair distance for the training. If your looking to get any job for 1 month this is the ideal role

      Cons

      Where to start; 75% of what you are told consist of lies. For example, this is a door to door SALES job, you are "promised" warm leads (appointments) however they get sent to the manager of each branch who can decide to keep them for himself (very few women work for this organisation due to the "banter") 1) Commission and Bonus are discretionary - PLEASE read the contract before you sign, I worked there 2 months and was told in the second month to expect around £1,500-£1,600 (for 4 sales) however I received minimum wage (not covering all the evening and weekend hours I put in) and I didn't receive a penny of expenses back. I also sold 8 systems in the following month of January and was told to expect a payment of £2,000-£2,500 after tax end of Feb but when I didn't receive anything at the end of Jan 18' I left. 2) You will be told to lie to the customers but never to "cheat" them i.e. we send the police immediately (no Verisure do not, they can make a report but that doesn't guarantee a response) 3) Hire and Fire galore - You will see this from a very early stage to encourage fear and compliance, very high turnover in staff. 4) Promised promotions - Yes, you can be a manager within 6 months... I'll leave you to decide whether you fancy fast tracking. 5) Material - Given a Demo Kit and some training and then left to it, go and knock on doors. Bring your own diary, pen, phone with a internet connection and data for maps and logging your daily connections (They won't give you a phone) 6) Micro-management - Absolutely 100% everyday, expect to receive a call or 10 from your line manager enquiring where you are, what your doing and who you've been speaking to. It's so they know your working and following there method of 4 hours business knocking and 4 hours early evening residential knocking (MINIMUM). 7) Fake Security Study - You may never know if the window is triple glazed or double but that's okay. You're a security consultant. Punch the window and tell the customer they need a shock sensor and you will give it them at a reduced price. Before you work for them see other negative reviews as they are 100% accurate, also check youtube Verisure video, the alarm system is impressive but good look selling it at the price (upfront and monthly) you will be given in training.

      Worst Company Ever, Stay Away,

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The commission structure is good, if you can sell the product, and you enjoy being self employed. (Which is the reality of the sales position/security consultant))

      Cons

      Con is very apt. The job advert is misleading. There is no basic pay, no company car, no business phone, no expenses paid, no point of sale material, no business cards and no personal company email address. You may get them if you qualify?? You're effectively working self employed at your own expense and time to go out there and find business, convincing people to buy their monitored alarms systems, whether business or residential. you get told at training that your basic pay is actually a guaranteed top up. Lack of promised company warm leads. Teleclose will also steal your orders if you fail to close them on the day. If you fail to deliver 8+ installs a month you get dismissed. I was there for 10 weeks, worst company I have ever worked for in 30 years.

      Pros

      Some great individuals in the team. I can't think of anymore, this place is literally a shambles

      Cons

      Poor Management Discrimination Sexism Dismissal of anyone who questions management No/Little Warm Leads Less than minimum wage and long hours (9AM-10PM) Job is mis-sold to you, it's bascially knocking on people's doors and asking them if they want to pay 46.80 a month for a alarm
