What is the feeling of job security at Be Interactive?

Pros

honestly, no pro's for me except maybe that the 5 people I met were nice and they made sure I knew before i started that I would be selling raffle tickets on the street

Cons

where to begin: 1. make sure you read your contract carefully, the lady "explained" the contract to us and gave us 5mins to read through and then sign during our introduction. I learned the hard way. also you have to get an ABN so you are less protected than with a normal TFN job. 2. there is no easing into it. If you dont make sales starting day one, or hitting the "low" targets you wont survive the first. 3. contract says both parties need to give 24h notice to end the contract and then says that they can end the contract at any given time if you are not meeting their requirements or aren't doing your job in the way they desire. 5. you have to work a full week (5days) in order to get the 700AUD retainer if you dont hit your target for the week 6. So point 4 & 5 is where i got screwed over. I texted my boss thursday evening (after 4days of working there) to see if I could call to have a chat, as i wanted to give my 24h notice so that I could still work the next day and get my retainer as I felt the job wasn't for me. no reply. went in the next morning 7.45 and went through the morning huddle etc, and like 45mins later I get pulled into a room, being told that I didn't perform well that week and that the client wanted me out, effective immediately. I felt like something was going to happen as some people of the team were acting weird around me that morning. I worked longer than normal 9-5, literally got home at like almost 8 on my 2 last days to try and get more sales so I was doing my best (which they acknowledged). So, in conclusion, the way they actually get out of paying you your retainer is not letting you work a full week, ignoring texts, and then letting you go effective immediately (no 24hr notice) because the contract is dodgy they can say that they can let you go because you werent performing to the best of your abilities even though they said they could see you were doing your best. So no retainer for me and they won't even pay my commission, even if it was a measly 50$. so if you do go for this company: READ your contract and if you have a gut feeling, TEXT the boss your 24h notice, not sure if it's the same in Australia but I know a lot of companies can't fire you once you'e handed in your notice (but check this first). ALSO, i'm not the 1st person who this happened to.

Advice to Management

1. send the contract to the employees the day before the introduction so they can read through it. 2. if the job doesn't suit someone but you see they are trying, at least have the courtesy to let them finish the week and give them a retainer. expecting people to work for free is a disgrace. It's a harsh reality that a charity would let someone go and not pay them but expect strangers to get raffle tickets.

so if you do go for this company: READ your contract and if you have a gut feeling, TEXT the boss your 24h notice, not sure if it's the same in Australia but I know a lot of companies can't fire you once you'e handed in your notice (but check this first).
