Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dundee, SCT21 February 2014
This company are only interested in maximum profit for as little staff as the can legally have to run the place
Expect minimum wage,long hours,being told to do jobs well out with your pay grade and for little reward
You will find training is mostly on line based
You may be required to cover other branches at cost to you but you can claim this back,the current system takes months
You will also have to face lone working with no help

This firm do not pay overtime so any extra work will be classed as lieu time you can take,if there is someone who can cover for you!

Another part of this job is cold telephone calling,you will find you are calling up former customers who left because PPG this is because PPG stealthily push up poor account customers prices for poor sales performance

You will also see this job advertised on a month to month basis because of they way people are treated,the Dundee job centre are fully aware of this.
Pros
None this is a dead end job
Cons
Long hours, minimum wage

I worked with glass, putting primer on and sending down line. I also did inspecting, making sure glass wasn't chipped and primer was in all the right spots. The people I worked with made the job better. It was an inviting workplace.
Pros
The people
