Tough place to work

Former employee

To what extent would you say your company is a sociable place to be?

Quite sociable

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

Not at all.All they are is money hungry. They overwork you and de-motivate you. They make empty promises.

f

To what extent does your company support your career development?

There is not much room for growth.

f

How would you rate your job security?

They can let you go anytime if you do not meet there ridiculous targets.

f

Would you recommend your place of work to a friend or potential job seeker?

No. When you hit your targets your the best, but if you don't they make you feel terrible. They over work you and it is very hard to make any commission because its all about conversion. If a customer calls just to make a enquiry or to pay a balance you get marked down for it.

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

To begin with extremely, but changes to the business strategy meant it was very tough to be motivated towards their objectives, as I didn't agree with the direction the business was taking.

Being such a large company there is plenty of scope for progression and its actively encouraged if you show willing. Appraisals, one-to-ones and development programmes and courses are important and readily available.

How would you rate your job security?

I left because I wasn't sure how safe my job would be, many people have been redundant. constant restructures and new management causes an uneasiness in office.

Would you recommend your place of work to a friend or potential job seeker?

I wouldn't. I have been in this situation, and I advised against it. This may be different for other departments, for example I have friends who work in reservations and enjoy it very much.
