    I have been working at Vodafone full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, great culture, inclusive, parking

    Cons

    salary, uncertainty, account base (depending on your role)

    Advice to Management

    Level out the base salary versus commission. Offer a higher base so you can higher the right people into the business. The accounts change too often to put commission down to how you sell and how good a sales person someone is. There needs to be a better balance so that this variation does not effect employees overall mental health if they miss out on commission for a couple of months. Salaries need to increase not... only for new employees but for current staff. EG. instead of someone with a 35K salary earning 100K in one year, versus 35K the next due to account change, even it out. Salary of 45/50K with the possibility to cap out commission of 50K. Same payout for the business but less stressed and frustrated employees.

    I worked at Vodafone part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to earn loads of commission Wonderful team of like-minded people Incentives When busy shift feels very fast

    Cons

    Stressful trying to hit targets, the commission structure is designed so that you must do x amount of sales in various categories to be paid anything at all, it is easy to have a good month but miss out on a payout due to missing a small sale ISSUES - dealing with customer issues can be difficult, very regular occurrence to have issues lasting weeks and customers coming in to follow you up on an issue they're... having that is beyond your control, customer care team are useless sometimes and will consistently try navigate the problem from them to another department Systems are so poorly designed and will drive you insane at times, very often sales are lost due to system errors!

    Advice to Management

    A dedicated in-store agent to deal with customer care issues! It is impossible to hit targets when 50% of the shift is spent cleaning up messes
