Vodafone Employee Review
Previously fun place to work
My initial employment with Vodafone was fun. The company values were selected by the staff and management and were implemented some two years or so into my employment. Unfortunately due to a change in management and subsequent merger with the 3 network the values were changed by management and hence the working environment changed. Advancement within the company was possible but over my time there I saw too many people advance to lower/middle management and then made redundant.
change of values
It's never dull the customers are colourful characters with a story to tell. The key is to listen and match them to the best options that suit them. As long you know your product line and the customer can see that you do well..
Lunch or dinner never at the same time.
Zero movement for anyone out of the capital city. We were Newcastle based and despite having some incredibly strong process knowledge, we never had any prospect of progression. Territory managers came up maybe once every six months to pretend they cared.
Bad pay, poor flexibility, terrible store management, massive disconnect between retail and corporate
Given excessive work to perform on a weekly basis. Have complained to manager. He assures me that the work is doable and that you need to manage your time better.
80 hours / week
