    I worked at Yell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary good earning potential however the money is not worth the long hours and pressure better jobs with good work life balance....

    Cons

    High pressure all the time, long hours never able to switch off. Lots of customer complaints which are left to you to pick up even if not you who caused the complaint and still expected to bring in massive targets.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic support staff rather than using pressure tactics.

    Digital Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yell (Birmingham, England (UK)) in October-2017.

    Interview

    I have been impressed by the whole interview process. I have been supported by a Salli Hunt in a very professional and supportive manner. She has made the whole experience a very good one for me. From being able to contact her directly about any issues I had and gave me courtesy calls to check I was ok and ready to start my new career with yell. I would rate her service a 5 star and is another reason why I feel yell is the right company for me to work for.
