    Improve customer service timescales. Implement a rotating shift pattern to allow staff a regular weekend off without having to use holidays.

    Good guys working in really bad conditions

    Minpunten

    Not paid enough for what you are doing if you work in the ware house you work 7-4 one week then the next you work 7-3 and make you work a half day Saturday for the same money so work 6 days for 5 days money??

    Advies aan management

    Need better people skills make it out they are easy to approach and will help you but definitely not the case they don’t want to here about it and if you do something wrong your shot down but don’t remember all the good things you do for them go well against health and safety to get the job done and about health and safety there is none at all expect far to much from you when your delivering furniture for customers and it’s to difficult to do the delivery they start integrateing you about it and act like they are there saying do this do that as if you have not tried everything you can they act like your lieing to them when your doing the best to your ability overall really bad company to work for get treated like a kid

    Money isnt too bad and made a good friend.

    Minpunten

    Hours change without notice.
    Sometimes work til 10 pm or Midnight and nobody comes in to buy a sofa at that time.
    The sales man lie to every customer to get a sale then never speak to the customer again after building a "relationship" with them. Which leaves it to the Admin to deal with.
    Your not allowed to crack a smile at another colleuage without getting shouted at and accused of not working.
    The managers wont approach you and let you know of youve made a mistake (which everyone does) but they'll talk about you in the morning meeting.

    Pluspunten

    None really ,ok maybe the staff if you work in a friendly place

    Minpunten

    everything else ,hours ,commission is pitiful ,what ever you do dont sell carpets you would be lucky to earn £20k pa ,probably equates to less than minimum wage ,dont think selling sofas is much better ,dont do it ,go and sell cars instead ,proper money for proper sales people .If you cant sell for toffee probably a good place to work if your expectations of life are very low.Will soon be joining DFS as another sinking company or certainly deserve to ,no social life and very long hours ,all in all sadly better off on the dole

    Advies aan management

    most that I worked with are ok ,strange that managers are expected to sell as much as sales people and still manage ,IT DOESNT WORK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    None Ha asked me to write at least 20 words in this section. What a joke of a company this really is forcing you to write something positive oh my days really is laughable

    Minpunten

    Treat staff like rubbish if your a driver stay away long hours treated like rubbish lied too. If your an agency worked stay the hell away from this place. This company thinks it’s acceptable to let there full time staff just get off home because they want to go and get drunk and leave a new starter stranded. No health and safety regulations anywhere to be seen. Vosa would have a field day here. No transport manager to speak of. The left hand from the right hand doesn’t know what they are doing. Vehicles are dangerous to drive.

    Advies aan management

    Stop treating full time employees different to agency worker the vast majority Work just as hard if not harder. Absolutely disgusted with the company

    Some people were good folk

    Minpunten

    Everything else. Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. Mis selling finance, told to lie to customers about finance options, brands of sofa they claim to be Italian are actually Chinese. Over Jan sale period you are expected to do 70+Hours, but only getting paid for 40. Frowned upon if you take your lunch. Upper management think they are Gods, when they are actually Corporate thieves. Constantly ripping elderly people off with bullsh#tcover options. H.R Staff are abysmal. Routinely lie about deliverys. List could go on

    Advies aan management

    Restructure whole company's management

    Pluspunten

    Can have a laugh if you are working with a good team. Decent pay. Can always ring another store for help from experienced admin (see cons as management useless so relied on other stores).

    Minpunten

    At this company, it feels like you are expected to eat, sleep and breathe SCS. Although the sales team have incentives to hit targets, this des not extend to admin despite the fact you do all of the work afterwards (arranging finance, taking payments, arranging deliveries, dealing with issues). Management is terrible, they have no understanding of how to deal with people and are only given their positions if they are good at sales. The level of work admin is expected to do often on by yourself was too much especially when management do not do what they should be doing. You spend a lot of time cleaning up issues caused by members of the sales team ie selling wrong colour combinations, saying they can get it in a certain combination or within a certain time period. You quickly learn how to lie to people. It is a thankless task and you do not get appreciation from management considering you single handedly deal with all the issues they fail to clear up. You have no social life whilst working here as you have to work every weekend and although management say you can arrange for weekends off, I found this impossible to arrange. You are also expected to work extra hours unpaid but you'd be promised your time back (you'd never get it back) as the company doesn't seem to do paid overtime for admin in my experience. You also feel the pressure to not take your break. Additionally, you would spend a lot of time asking management to tie up certain issues and would end up taking the brunt when they do not contact the customer despite assuring you they would. I would not recommend working for SCS.

    Advies aan management

    Take responsibility for your store and actually learn how to manage people. Hire more people (you make enough money) to take pressure off staff and introduced alternative days/weekends.

    Pluspunten

    Steady job, commission depends on how good you are. Good incentives to win prizes. Good laugh if you have a good team.

    Minpunten

    Long hours, weekends, bank holidays and Christmas you have to work. Heavy lifting - sofas. Showrooms looks too packed with lots of stock not laid out properly.

    Advies aan management

    Look at how the competitors are doing it. Get a new buyer who knows what style is!
