    I worked at iSelect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training system is great to learn, free coffee, cool office, ethically make 150k p.a but have to work hard for it.

    Cons

    You have to work 6 days a week to make commission, nearly all team leaders can’t actually sell and don’t know what they are saying or training on. Expected to work overtime. Tenure isn’t recognised or appreciated.

    Pros

    Good money if you make commissions, fun workplace during quieter times, free daily coffee

    Cons

    Expected to work weekends, not expected to make commission for the first few months, more experienced employers are given a lot of extra treatment so earn A LOT more than others, lots of 'discretionary' overtime during busy months

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the high performers, they will eventually leave anyway. Focus more on the trainees and helping them achieve targets and earn commission and people will stay longer.

    I worked at iSelect full-time

    Pros

    fun atmosphere and people and location

    Like all sales jobs, if your not good you will be gone before you establish anything, everyone from my group has left the business one year on.

    Pros

    Leaving for somewhere better this nightmare.

    Cons

    They fire you based on gossip. I personally got reprimanded for "GOING TO MY CAR AFTER WORK?????" They pulled me up and stated, we heard you tried to break into someones car????? - has that hit insane level yet? People dragged into rooms and intimidated for things they weren't clear were a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire people who can do the job Right!
