Poor management
Doesn't appear to be much management training, my manager told my I was losing my job due to cuts and I ended up consoling her. IIt was an okay stop-gap but there was a culture of working more hours than contracted which doesn't constitute a good work life balance, not a lot of flexibility around working times either which I felt a bit backwards in this day and age.

Not great
Underpaid for the work they want you to do, it’s not a real sales job, just to gain distribution and get white space into distribution,
Car is tracked 24/7 your speed, excessive braking, understeering and over steering is logged on company car.


You must stay within 10% of speed limits even in a car park, annoying thing is in a car park with 5mph speed limit your still get flagged

Ok place to work but pay very low
I worked for McCurrach for 4 years and enjoyed my time there. The salary is poor and well below the industry standard. The culture is good and the management structure ok. Overall it would be a great place to work if the pay had been a fair representation for the work you do.

Shocking Management Team
The company itself is a good company to work for. The financial services department in this company however needs an overhaul in management. They recruit external managers meaning they cannot coach or give any kind of constructive feedback and instead rely on the rest of the team members to train any new people in the door. All frustrations of management are taken on the team. There is a major lack of support here where the people working are told openly in a meeting environment to leave the company if they aren't happy and wont smile.

Stressful and lack of training
Very little training provided from the start and not enough support available. McCurrach does not make employees a priority especially on an individual basis and does not act on criticism.

Good company to start your career with
Good company to start with and gain the knowledge and requirements for this role. Job can be rewarded and targets can be easily met. Money isn’t great but the people are!

Job security but low pay
Great staff working at the company, the company has great direction but pays very low for the amount of work required in return. Company car is good it fitted with a tracker so you will feel you are being watched at all times.
Pros
Good company car and.managerial opportunities
Cons
Low pay, expected to work full 8 hours in a day and work load can be intense and the company car is tracked.

You can do better
The role consisted of visiting various stores throughout the day on a very large territory. The role of the job is fairly easy and basic.
You are paid for 40 hours a week but the actual hours worked are a minimum 50 hours a week. Overtime is not paid nor time in lieu given.

Travel to first and final call are not considered working hours irrelevant of how far from home they are.

Breaks are unpaid.

Tracked company car necessary to do the job, but it is heavily taxed.

Management have no interpersonal skills and poor communication.

Work colleagues are the best part of the job.

Field Sales Good
Excellent company to work for the contract was with Brittish Gas for cavity insulation in homes, contract was pulled as funding ended. Had to call at customers homes and inform them they can get free insulation, has to measure the property to determine amount of materiel needed and book appointments.

Terrible company to work for
Working at McCurrach is mind numbing unless you are in with the management.

Sackings and redundancies take place willy nilly resulting in a revolving door culture.


The salary is below average considering you are supposed to be working with the biggest brands.


There is a one size fits all approach on how to sell which is ridiculous.


If you work at McCurrach you are essentially self employed as you will be expected to find and generate new business on your own.


Temporary contracts are often given which will result in you being passed from pillar to post depending on how the company's management feels at the time.


All in all average wage for knocking your pan in without any job security.


Avoid at all costs

Not a manager position
Job title is very misleading, it is a rep position. Great for somebody’s first job but not in any way a management role. Pay is poor for the amount of travelling, turn up at a store and post a few bits of nonsense on yammer that’s it. Think twice if you are looking for a manager role. Do not think you can use this as a stepping stone into manager position just because of the title, it is a sales rep with an awful uniform. Managers above are useless as they have no management experience.
Pros
Easy work, can blag easily
Cons
Long hours, poor pay, bad management

Good for students and people who live at home
The best thing about this job is the company car. There are very few prospects and the money is low; it is great if you just want a fun/ easy job for a short while. Some days I tried my hardest and other days I did very little; either way, no one seemed to really notice. The monthly meetings were fun with everything paid for. Nice bunch of people and even met the CEO who seemed a good guy. Hours are good also with no weekends plus you can start early and finish early if you want.
Pros
Car, free lunches, monthly meetings, not micro managed, visiting different places each day, good hours.
Cons
Limited prospects, low pay

Very bad company
They say you are employed to work 40 hours but McCurrach don't count travel time to first and last call of the working day which means you can be working 10 hours a day with travel time x 5 days a week not 40 hours . Every monthly team meeting the whole job changes e.g. Hours, what you are meant to be doing in your job the management tell you to record SKU lines as 0 when you first go to a new call even if the call has lines on display. So they can look good to PepsiCo.The Management are rubbish and Some use bullying tactics to get what they want from there staff.
Pros
None
Cons
The whole job.
