    Current Employee - Credit Services Representative in Stourton, England

    I have been working at first direct full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked here for 7 years. Good pay for what it is. Good holidays and benefits package.

    Cons

    Returning from maternity leave and at last minute unexpected change in circumstances means no childcare for late shifts. Basically told working unsociable hours is in the contract and it’s tough by inflexible department manager.

    I worked at first direct full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great customer service ethic and carries this through to its staff. Good benefits package and great onsite facilities. Loved working here and left on a high.

    Cons

    HSBC mentality can be a bit stifling but does make the opportunities even wider. Salary is below market median
