Since starting with Kinex in November I have enjoyed my time here. Thought the training was perfect and all the managers help to push you to achieve you targets. The Targets they set are all fair and the commission structure is great.

Spent 3 months working for Kinex, in what I can describe was one of the most stressful jobs I ever had.

Having a strong sales background with a lot experience in various sales sectors I not understand how such a big comoany lacks understanding of basic sales.


Step by step procedure that they have in place is nothing more than a written sales script which they believe will work everytime, any argument made by the customer the most imortant one being the price which is usually higher.


How can you expect a potential customer to switch to Kinex if the current provider is on avarge 30% cheaper. The managment at Kinex is making the argument of proce increase for every other provider, forgeting that although it is true, other providers offer shorter contracts at better rates which makes no sense for most customers to switch.


Price beat guarantee is nothing but an empty promise, what in fact happens, customers are left with the higher price and tied to a 3 year contract instead of being given the price beat.


They ll tell you to sign up everyone and tell them that Kinex will cover any termination charges up to £300 etc but when it comes to covering it the turn around and say it was not worth for the company to pay the termination fee.


No information about customer cancelling before reciving the invoice which dont alywas come when expected, so there is no way to try and convince the customer you worked so hard to sign up.


Waste of time and energy!
Pros
Zero Pros
Cons
Expensive Prices, Bad customer service, Poor Management

Worked here just over a month and all I saw was people coming in and out, management is constantly threatening to sack people for no sales when all management does is distract and play games in work hours. They’re unhelpful when comes to days off,
They do not explain you have to have you’re holidays booked spread apart.

You don’t receive you’re bonuses. You hit them then they’re no where to be seen.

Management is always stressing because they don’t earn anything, not because of your benefit
Pros
Hours
Cons
Management attitude

They promise you the earth and don’t deliver
In the interview they promise you four appointments per day and £1k per week

You are lucky to get one appointment per day , they are also unqualified appointments and they use pressurising tactics to get customers to buy

Do not work for this company
Pros
None
Cons
No pay

Spending the day on the phones trying to sell business owners (mostly people aged 60-80 I found) smartphones and broadband.
or business owners that already had the products and are not willing to chance. some do though, I always found it easier to sell to salons and people in the automotive sector.

its alot harder than you think.
Pros
commission structure and good OTE
Cons
hire and fire company

Great company to work for, this was my very first sales job and everything about it was great. However because I had never done sales before I did feel like it was a lot of pressure. Management are absolutely great, they help and support you and motivate you 100%.
All the other colleagues are great, more like a family bond.
Pros
incentives and bonusses
Cons
Job security
