    I worked at Thomas Sanderson full-time

    Pros

    In general, manager and the rest of the team were nice.

    Cons

    Incredibly tiny office for 5 people - could barely walk around freely. Office is based in a unit in a business park - you can't really go anywhere without a car. Half an hour lunch break - there was only one microwave which was shared between people from the Customer Service team so by the team you get downstairs, queue, heat up your lunch and get back to your desk, you probably only have around 15 minutes left to eat, go to the wash room etc. On alternate weeks, employees had to rotate around to work shifts up until 7pm and 3 hours on Saturdays. When I joined the company, my direct supervisor was very very very nice to me, however, the day after I handed in my notice, her whole attitude changed and even made some sarcastic comments about me to another colleague, even though I had done nothing wrong but to hand in my notice. This I found very unprofessional.

    I worked at Thomas Sanderson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is ok for the hours.

    Cons

    First of all, when you first start it seems like a dream come true but very soon the cracks show. Working in recruitment having to lie to people who were interested in roles when we knew full well theyre was no appointments and as a company that prides itself on intergity is poor. Was made to work on my own in an office on Saturdays for 3 hours which is fine other than most of the time the building was never open so I would have to stand on my own in an empty industrial estate, same as for when working late nights till 7 in the winter when it is pitch black, does not help that there is no streetlights which makes you feel vulnerable. You are Lied to and promised your job is safe when the next day you have a smug boss telling you that you're gonna be made redundant. Manager in office is a very snobby and down right nasty lady, couldn't run a team, just got involved in nasty gossip. You go into work everyday dreading if she is in a bad mood as you will be given menial jobs so she can sit on her phone and browse the internet at her lesuire and will treat older members off staff with no respect, maybe too young and inexperienced to be in such a high position. Staff are constantly told to be positive and if you tell management you have concerns you are told to stop "putting the cat amount the pigeons". The office staff seem very nice when you first start until you have any sort of issue at all, god forbit you are in any way poorly as you will be taken into the office and made to feel ashamed and guilty for being poorly.. They are all 2 faced and if your face doesn't fit. You're a goner Not really anything good to say about the company and as for the directors. One of the female directors was a kind and patient lady, as for the man, well he seemed to get a kick out of telling a team of 4. Including a pregnant lady who was crying her eyes out that we were out of a job, just sat there with a smile, which added insult to injury. The previous officer manager was a very lovely man, he was very approachable but unfortunately was never there to be able to offer support from other nasty members off staff. Which meant you felt very unsupported.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Some nice people who work there. Modern working. Get to meet new people.

    Cons

    They promise you the world then tear it apart right in front of you. Managers are petty and downright cruel, unnecessarily cruel at that. If you’re in the good books or ‘clique’ you get treated like a king. If you have a free mind, you’re treated like a slave.

    I worked at Thomas Sanderson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have met some of the most precious people here, intelligent, smart, brilliant colleagues who would deserve much better than a call centre. Previous management was flexible and supportive (some of them) and treated employees as human beings.

    Cons

    Current management is a bunch of liars, absolute zero respect to the people working there. They think employees are idiots and disposable bolts in a machine. They keep telling you how important you are and the future is bright, but in reality, they don`t care about you, they only care about their own pockets and sell their employees out for pennies. Redundancy after redundancy (3 already this year only) and they make sure to push expert seniors and competent managers out so they can do whatever they want. One day they tell you that everything is fine and there is a great future for the company, the next day your job is gone and they say sorry with a huge smile on their face. After making a quarter of their workforce redundant earlier this year they sent out communication to ask people `tell us how you embrace change and what would you celebrate` - while people didn`t know whether they will be the next tomorrow to lose their jobs. It doesn`t matter what you do or what you know, it only matters who you know and how far up you kissed yourself. Don`t come up with any ideas because they will take it, present it as their own and step over you in a second. I`m glad that finally the whole place is moving elsewhere and shuts down soon, it was the hell itself for the last couple of years.

    Pros

    Flexible.... this is what your competitors say full stop.

    Cons

    If this company was ethical to what they sell to customers and the way they do it ! I’d still be there Total lack of professionalism love selling you a false dream... some people have been here a while and they clearly don’t have any morals.
