The bad points: You'd be expected to do 30+mins unpaid work prior to every shift and you wouldn't usually get out until 30+ mins after each shift. Unpaid lunch hour which you'd rarely be able to take, admin staff had all been made redundant so you had to find time to answer the non-stop influx of customer complaints, promotional posters and price tickets appeared to need changing on an almost daily basis, moving heavy furniture around whilst management would slack off and pick up the sales.

The good points: You'd be very unfortunate if you were sacked as salespeople are leaving the business left, right and centre. We had a great store manager for a while who ensured all staff pulled their weight, so when equal opportunities are given, there is good money to be made. Management are given company cars and bonuses for target achievements which is good if you want to progress.


My basic was £17,500, OTE £28,000-£35,000 at the particular store
Pros
Money
Cons
Unpaid hours, long hours, management

J2D is one of the worse places I have ever worked. General Manager sits on the office all day having no interaction. Deputy Manager who basically ran the show is a nitemare who looks after his friends have
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons

Worst ever company I had the misfortune to drive for , thank the lord I only worked 3 shifts
Load your own lorry , twice a day slogging yourself to death . No organisation

Nothing but take this settee to this address and that’s all you get ..

Your helper is at best more interested in their phone then helping you then tells you they are on more money then you ..

I had to leave as quick as possible before I did something I would regret.. Honest if your agency sends you here don’t bother .
Pros
None no direction nothing..
Cons
Long days loading your lorry often no lifting assistance so stressful, every day is pure torture.

Company is very profit orientated. Bonuses can be lost very easily, wages are docked for timekeeping, not clocking in/out or traffic fines. Sometimes the quality of goods are not what customers expect so there can be plenty of conflict in your day. Overall it should be a decent job but company seems to be more money driven than customer/staff satisfaction.

Overloaded and over worked. Ridiculously pressured to keep times.
They will use any excuse not to pay bonuses . Management will blame you for everything
Pros
Its a job
Cons
Your just a robot for their gain

really enjoyed my time at SCS, there is plenty of opportunity to make more money in commission if you are willing to go the extra mile for it. The training I received was fantastic

A competitive environment, a good team culture, a nice place to work, the colleagues make the job enjoyable, dealing with the customers and getting the deal closed is a buzz

Very competitive environment, literally every man for himself.

Store I worked at was very relaxed, everyone got on well with each other.


If you like having weekends - forget it


Be prepared to handle complaints alot as the complaint office will always pass on back to store as they often don't want to deal with it.
Pros
Comission
Cons
Long hours, stressful because of other depts not doing their role

This is a good place to work but in my experience they are not to flexible or understanding if you have a family or illness... life basically.
I found that the way I was treated at times were unacceptable but overall it has been a good place to work made some friends.

Day to day scs are terrible jobs always short customers getting told one thing over another it's just unorganised and not well structured. Some days can be okay grab my carpet fitting jobs and leave but your guaranteed to have a job issue once a day due to lack of organisation (Cheltenham store have issues)

During my time here I found that although they say you are treated the same as every one else ... not true just most other companies they av their favourites. And yes it stands out a mile.
If you like to drive at a fast pace then go here but if you expect to keep your licence clean stay away from here. They do not care about the drivers working time rules that includes 12hr rest before next shift. The only good thing is the shift pattern to start with then come christmas forget it , if you one of these where you think you fit in then you'll find out then , management dont care about safety. Its always your fault.

I've done plenty of sales jobs over the years and as a whole (in a sales aspect, it's alright). Commission isn't amazing but decent enough to earn 25k + a year without having to 'become' the job.

MASSIVE downside is undoubtedly the hours! Not really a possibility if you have young kids (and you like to see thier faces once in a while)
