    I worked at Vodafone part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company in terms of training and development. Pay is above average for sales assistants and assistant manager.

    Cons

    Above the branch manager level, nobody senior ever visits, and when they do they don't acknowledge anyone but the branch manager. The job can be a bit repetitive but was to be expected as its retail. Very pushy with their sales, but no real incentives for hitting targets so very hard to be motivated?!

    Advice to Management

    Higher level management, get off your high horse and speak to the everyone and at least ask their name, after all it's us that make you your money!
