Unprofessional. The top management don't make professional decisions but rather human selective on who you are. If you make a mistake even has the highest performer and a hard worker they over look that
Pros
The comm structure then
Cons
Unfair highly unfair

I am a very versatile person who is thirsty for new challenges. So working for the company it was a true blessing for me. Virgin active is the first company to teach me true work ethics n to be a team player. I miss my job but because of family responsibilities that's the reason I resigned. I am the only child at home, single parent. Working far away from home is a big challenge for me because my mom is sick. I have to take care of her and my kids.

Virgin is a great company to work for realy they look after there sales staff and incentives good . Even there benefits are brilliant but they need to look into the constant turnover of staff who is the problem and stop blaming consultants for thing managers did wrong stop dismissing people left rite and centre without getting to the coure of the problem.

Hours were bad. Couldn't balance professional and personal lifestyle. Always left work hours after my shift ended. Money was really good though. Always earned really well if you work hard for your commission.
