Great for school leavers
Written by Claims Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) from Leicester, Leicestershire on 21 June 2019
This company is great for school leavers as the salary isn't great, no free parking, shift work etc. The management are all cliquey, coaches give differing advice so nothing is ever clear.
Pros
Modern offices
Cons
Shift work, no parking, poor salary
