Demanding target driven

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Demanding stressful and very target driven which is ok if the salary was paid on time and if on actually received the promised commission...no exciting benefits or incentives..

fast paced

Kss cellular is a sales company dealing with credit applications. A typical day would be team meetings in the morning where all sales agents get together and discuss targets for previous day and new targets for the new day. There after agents start phoning their leads as given by team leaders. I learned that sales is a very stressful enviroment but with the right team and leaders in the company you can learn to overcome tough obstacles The managers and sales team leaders were all very competent in the way they deal with the staff you feel like part of a family

Pros

great energy and vibe at the call centre

Great learning stepping stone

I started at Kss in 2010, no experience at all. They taught me all I know today, had about 5 promotions in the time I was there. Yes they are strict but at the end of they they also teach you self control, self motivation and to better your self. Salary all depends on you as a person. If you are willing to work and prove youre self, this is the company for you. From supervisors to management all great people if you do your part. We had a lot of marathon days, and so much fun, there was never a dull moment. There will always be people bad mouthing any company, so if you are willing to prove your self and motivated and in need of a fun inviroment this is a place to start.

Pros

great management

Cons

none

Strained work environment, where employers had no respect for the employees

As much as I enjoyed working at this company it was only due to the convenience in terms of travelling. Long hours with many calls to reach the set target.

Pros

Commission

Cons

failure to pay the hard earned comission

Productive and fun workplace

It's a good place to work if you have good telephone manners. You listen to calls and make notes where or not the call was correctly as per the checklist provided. The co-workers is nice and friendly towards each other. Management is friendly and is willing to help you where ever they can. Hardest part of the job is sitting still with the headphones the whole time. Enjoyable part of the job is when everybody can talk to each other with out any problems.

Lot of fun and reaching target always.

As person who love to sell and talk a lot.Every day was enjoy my job to the fullest.At work we had this big sound system so the supervisor will turn it up so we can have the best energy to make sales and keep on dances and smiling so that the customer can hear that we are in the very happy working environment.The hardest part is went we did not reach target the ceo will call us at the boardroom one by one to start questions.

Pros

yes if i was the first person to make sale today.

Cons

the hours was 8:00 to 18:00
