    Pros

    There are no pros in this company

    Cons

    Promised the world and its all a lie. The relatives of the management do ok as they are kept busy with decent leads. If you are a friend or related then you are laughing

    "Average company to work for."

    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...

    Pros

    Manufacturers have great pride in the great product

    Cons

    Management out for themselves, will throw anyone under the bus to make themselves look good, mostly at the detriment to the company

    Advice to Management

    Focus on engaging with customers and promoting a brilliant product, instead of in-house power games and personal vendettas

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Get rid of your management team and actually employ those with people skills and a heart!

    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...

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways of being honest to what you do ! Your aren’t the monopoly of the blinds and shutter world far from it. Your credibility if customers knew how you work and sell to them would be ruined and without the money from Hunter Douglas you would for sure, have been a none stater.

    I worked at Thomas Sanderson for less than a year

    Pros

    Good initial product training - they pay for training and support you with a payment for first 7 weeks. Good range of products and relatively easy to learn features and benefits of products. Arrange your own time to work. Senior managers all great to work for but they are not your managers and they cannot see what goes on in your teams.

    Cons

    Poor appointments, areas one needs to travel to at times is ridiculous when another sales person will be travelling to a road 2 minutes away from where you live. Told constantly by manager to open up more evenings and weekends or they will recruit. They recruit all year round! Lots of favouritism within my team, don't expect to make a great wage unless you've been there for a good few years. The money will barely get...

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, don't hide behind smoky mirrors. Listen when someone is whistle blowing, its for a reason! Revisit the ways you operate and embrace change. Senior managers need to listen to raised concerns. your managers will be your downfall.

    I have been working at Thomas Sanderson for more than a year

    Pros

    I can honestly say 'I love my job' Before joining Thomas Sanderson I was stuck in abit of a rut after working in my previous role of a recruitment consultant for 8 years. To move into this role it was personally a big step as I had no sales experience but knew I was impressed with the company. The initial training was brilliant, lots to learn but made me confident about the products and quality service TS offer....
