Avoid if you are passionate about Cars.
Warehouse & Sales (Former Employee) –  Crawley, ENG12 April 2015
This company took me in at 18/19 worked throughout my early adult life very hard putting in 110%, as i worked at a "hub" the management system was ruined because there was no stability, if you combine, ops managers, sales & branch managers in my 3 years i have worked under at least 15. no lie.

if you had a passion for cars like myself you will not enjoy it, sadly the company now would much prefer to hire humongous amounts of random casuals, which in turn had caused all the full-time staff to jump ship to either competitors or completely give up on their dreams.

the regional manager decided to give the brach managers job to an ex boss at Comet. see where this is going? since taking over he has slowly employed his family, friends and all old Comet workers who really have no passion for Cars or how they work, this is a Purley sales based company now, all they care about is making the number.
they made this mistake before by employing a halfords manager and it didnt work because they are mainly retail focused, i dont agree with TV sales staff running a motor factors one bit.

if you have been there years it is irrelevant, they preach internal progression but only sales staff recieve incentives and rewards.

i worked mainly as a warehouseman and gave sales a shot, it is atrocious! your lucky to get your poxy 40 minutes lunch! they frown upon lunch breaks and consider you an enemy for losing sales and leaving the desk.

the employment schemes is appalling, they hire anyone from anywhere with no brains or experience in any fields or the motor trade or experience
  more... on vehicles.

the uniform is a nightmare, you will only receive a t-shirt or two and thats it, everything else you have to supply yourself, throughout the year if your work clothes get ruined.

staff discount on parts is pointless because if you dont drive the manager doesnt let you buy for a close relative, even though its allowed but managers discretion.

when i became a sales Advisor i had no advanced training atall, they give you a big module pack of which you will never complete because the management have no training time put in place.

you ended up with a call list and repetedly told to call everyone all the time, constantly cold calling customers pushing promotuons and sales.

the warehouse organisation was non existant, parts not found where very common, expensive parts not found where hardly investigated,

try having to tell customers we have failed continuously because our stock is missing or we cant manage to send the correct part number to a customer

i completed a first aid course, never received a certificate and never received a payrise for holding this certificate and being responsible for all staffs safety.

any overtime you done would not be paid in the same month, you would receive half of a months overtime in the next month because of cut off dates etc.

there are so many bad things about this company they need to iron out.

this company could really go beyond further but needs to pick up the bread crumbs its leaving behind.

after 3 years of hard work with nothing to show for it i am happy to say good riddance.

Very demanding, nice colleagues, decent environment
Warehouse Operative/ Trainee Ops Manager (Current Employee) –  Crawley, West Sussex10 December 2012
The job itself was very physically demanding, I was persecuted for being the newest member of the team and lost shifts over the hierarchy involved, all in all a decent place to work but not my kind of job, I was all in all a good worker and a reference would substantiate this, the computer system was ol and outdated and the organisation of the company was split between 3 different ops managers.
Pros
variable work shifts
Cons
not enough hours, not enough money, physically demanding
