    I worked at DW Sports full-time

    Pros

    Free gym membership and discount rate for a friend

    Cons

    HO couldn't give a stuff, talk to you like crap and they don't trust anyone who is running the clubs for them. Area manager is really patronising. All the managers only care about is sales. If you have a problem they couldn't give a stuff. Takes so long to get stuff fixed in there and it's the staff that take the lashing from the unhappy members

    Advice to Management

    Sort it out. Stop paying minimum wage on bank holidays and Christmas. Stop being so horrible to club staff try actually giving a stuff

    Membership Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warrington, North West England, England (UK)
    Declined Offer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DW Sports (Warrington, North West England, England (UK)) in August-2017.

    Interview

    Sent CV via online. Was contacted within a day and had the interview the following day. A very quick process. Unfortunately the interview was not as good. It was a little outdated and the interviewer was very condescending, almost like an ex-teacher, and the role play was also terrible and not realistic of true sales, conversation and lacked any real connection. Overall, a very quick way to put quality sales people off the company, the DW Sports Sales process and the senior staff. Poor experience of an interview. I decided not to continue my application.
