    I worked at Abtran full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pros are the people who work there. The sales atmosphere was fantastic.

    Cons

    Wage is awful, management is awful, your breaks are limited and if you're late on your bathroom break you get deducted money.. no one listens to feedback. And managers are bullies who get away with everything

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Abtran for less than a year

    Pros

    Guaranteed hours, social, week long laid training, understanding if you aren't meeting targets in first 3 months, understanding about sick leave with a doctor's cert, pay all you are legally entitled to like holiday pay.

    Cons

    Hard targets, some not so bright people working there, repetitive, expected to bend the truth to make sales, dull work.

    I worked at Abtran full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues are all very friendly

    Cons

    Worked to the bone for minimum pay with very little breaks. Company as a whole is completely disorganised and bordering on incompetent. Keep track of every minute you work and every sale as they will mess up your pay and commission.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need training on how to actually manage people.

    I worked at Abtran

    Pros

    Nice people, an introduction to sales, ti be fair management were very understanding about having to book a day off or tailoring your hours if your doing a course or something

    Cons

    terrible pay, soulless you are but a number, hours are very unsocial, very clicky management...you will not progress in the company unless your friends with someone senior despite ability, i talked to fantastic employees who still were at there starting roles despite being fantastic at there job and were put aside for someone who was "good crack" "one the lads"

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes and progress the actual talent
