Learning how to deal with negatives on a daily basis and never letting it get you down or in a bad mood, most enjoyable part of my job was the challen
-A typical day at work was stressful, meeting your targets.
-There will always be negatives in your job but that should never make you become a negative person regarding your job especially.

-Build good relationships with management, colleagues and customers.

-Hardest part of the job was convincing customers.

Good place to gain experience
Overall good place to gain call center experience but not to grow. Management was semi-helpful and never receiving your commission that you worked hard for puts you down
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Never received commission

Worst company
This is the worst company to work for. They do not care about anything besides the team making sales they make you feel like a failure if you do not make sales for an hour.

They are quick to congratulate for that moment and then quick to shout as well. Your job is at risk everyday because they always say they can replace you.

Won't reccomend this company to any School Leaver.
Sell direct marketing had been thee worst company I have ever worked for. Although they give you free food twice a week, which could rather pay that money wasted into our salaries instead.
All managment within this business are slow, and can't keep anything private. Everyone knows everyone's business.

The team leaders give absolutely no support to their team, no motivation and go as far as pushkng the team under the bus to save themselves.... Team leaders are always smoking when they are needed to be helping their team. Or even standing on one side having a conversation with each other about NON RELATED work things .


At the end of the day all the help that could be provided by the team leader isn't there and then the rest of the team never makes there targets and has to stay after work to either work or to have a meeting.


Salary which states R4000 + uncapped commission( which is only 20% chance of it happening within the first year), so basically your salary is R3960pm...


Long hours with sometimes no 2nd tea breaks and having to stay after work for a 10 min (30 min)meeting even though the contract stated 2x 15min teas and 1x 30min and working hours. From 8am to 17.00pm.



I Advise everyone to take a deep look through their contracts and question everything you find strange. Management and team leaders are all young, too playful and don't take their job seriously.

Money Driven and Fun Workplace
If you looking to make easy money, this would be the place to be.
Uncapped Comission, regular incentives to keep you motivated, free lunch and who doesn't like fee food. Really appreciated by those who can't afford to buy. Really convenient hours so that I can get home early and spend time with my family. I would really recommend this company to anyone seeking stability and trying to find their feet.

Company very disorganized and its under construction , what is being said during interview stage is really not all true once you reach the floor. Management is very rude and they cannot answer simple questions. Salary is very low for the 9 hours everyday. Staff is under-payed.
Pros
No Work on Weekends
Cons
Long hours, Poor salary

Fun and stressful
The pressure is real on the floor of the call centre, rude customers but you have to remain calm and kind. The teamleaders are always putting pressure for target and sometimes they use foul language and no one really cares, I feel that the working environment is somewhat unprofessional
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
No job security

Do not work here
They will not give you a contract. You will wait for months. They will use the excuse of having one HR person, never heard of mail merge apparently. They will not care about your children, or your health. What they want is sales. You make sales, they happy. You don't for one day, you sign incident reports. When I resigned they did not even acknowledge my resignation nor did they pay me for the days I worked. They could get away with it because I had no contract. Do not make the same mistake I did, do not work here.
Pros
Tuesday and Thursday free roll
Cons
No contract, bad management, gossip
