Stressful and they micromanage their employees

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed working there when i arrived i made sales but as time went by the environment became too stressful upto a point where by colleagues would just choose to resign during our lunch hours but if management can change how they manage thier people then it'll be a good place to be at.

Pros

Free coffe/ Juice

Cons

Long hours extended to how the team leader feels like

Amazing working environment

The first company that i have been employed at that values employees and rewards their excellent performance. I have personally grown as individual within the company and would highly recommend Blue Mercury Financial Services to any individual whom is looking to build a career in the financial services sector. Amazing support from management, they never make you feel like just another employee only recognized that a year end function.

Pros

Incentives

Cons

Productive and fun environment

Blue mercury is a excellent company to work for very organized with good communication. What matters to them is there staff to ensure they are able to make sales and be able to take home there desired earning. The sky is the limit to earning what you dream of earning in any other call centre. From management to agents very friendly and hard working dedicated staff.

Pros

Earning potential

Would never recommend

Long hours from 8-6 during the week then Saturdays from 9-12. RUDE management. Unprofessional working environment. Unrealistic goals and targets. Always stressful. Salary is ok for Senior Consultant but for Junior consultant, it's a joke. Training is also not paid for. They always hiring because people are always leaving.

More working hours, basic is low and no adherence to Covid19 regulations

it’s not that bad as a company but their salary is so low. You world Monday to Saturday for less than minimum South African wage. You risk your life for R19,64, the place is non adherence to covid 19 regulations. People hardly wear masks, there’s one hand sanitizer at the front door and by midday it’s empty and no one bothers to fill it. Managers smoke cigarettes on the sales floor with their buddies.

Pros

As junior sales agents the work load is not much

Cons

Long working hours, managers smoke on the sales floor so it’s hard for non smokers

Worst job

Worst job I have ever had. It’s perfect as a start up first job not for a family person. Working hours 8-6 if loadshedding or not on target 8-6:30 Nothing enjoyable about my job

sales person (telephonic)

it was always stressful, never paid on time, pressure and micro management always applies and not the greatest job I have ever had. their products are expensive and remuneration was very small and I always was frustrated due to lack of funds as cost of living is very high.

Non compliance outsourced insurance call centre (family business )

Blue Mercury is a family run business that employs on a hire & fire method, the management uses an extreme amount of profanity to its employees, ..No room for growth it's a family business. Filthy working environment with aggressive management.

Pros

None

Cons

Aggressive Management, hire and fire method, cant make commission

Productive and fun place to work at.

The company is a good company with good principles and a good working environment. The product I used to sell was expensive in line with the quality but targets were too high. Commission was hardly earned.

Starting salary very low, irrespective of experience

Have to generate a minimum of R40000 worth of permium to start earning comm, if you happy with just earning a basic you should be fine. Fun environment nobody behind your back.

Pros

Good brand

Cons

Earning comm not as easy

productive

Working here at Blue Mercury has really taught me the value of working in a team and I found a company that really does appreciate my efforts and dedication
Was this review helpful?

It is a productive call centre, fun enviromnent family orientated and considerate.

We basically need to call client provided to us in the form of leads, high LSM clientele, so we basically need to be on calls the whole day, selling Discovery Insure which is short term comprehensive insurance, Management is supportive, the hardest part of the job would be that the people we are calling are generally very busy people and always don't have time to be on sales calls, and that Discovery is quiet expensive in terms of premiums. Honestly is just the salary is not working out for me and the commission target is unrealistic, I say this because only one person made comm between two branches.

Cons

Long hours and working saturdays if you are not on target
