Not fun environment
The money is fair but the working environment is toxic. Lost of negativity as you work hard for you commission and once you make it they always finding a way to strip you sales or stuff after weeks of making it

Fast Paced and Stressful with Unrealistic targets set
My time at Shaw Academy started off really well. But then things started to change at a quick pace, we were told we had to make certain call and sales targets that were incredibly unrealistic within our "9 hour shift" . Many times I would find myself working without taking any lunches or breaks just to make reach my target set by the Managers and CEO. I would also find myself leaving work an hour or two late at times and then having to find my own way home at 8-9pm. AND LORD HELP YOU if you want to take a Public Holiday off. Even though you do not get double pay or Public Holiday pay.

Money, growth and pressure
My experience at Shaw had been positive for the most of it. It is a fast pace ever changing company that requires you to give your all and can be stressful but you get paid according to your job difficulty so that's good. Growth has been crazy good. I have seen people promoted about 7 times in the last 7 months all based on how hard you work. Management is hard core but understanding and fair. Over all its a great place to grow fast if you have the right mindset and work ethic. And we get to study for free too so that's nice. Many make it past contract stage but those who don't make it end up a abit angry as it's more for those whit postive mindset rather than those who are not really into sales
