“fire hazard”

Written on: 29/02/2012

I've just had the built in gas oven removed and found the shelf it sat on had burnt an enormous hole in it. How my house wasn't burned down god only knows. The heat that must have been generated turned most of the shelf into charcoal. How the gas pipe didn't melt and explode is a miracle. Also they had not fed the plug and lead through a hole. Which now I'll have to do to fit my new oven. The wiring was found to be dangerous and they had just fitted the unit with it trapped behind. I've had this kitchen for 11 years work surfaces have warped, there are loads of places where the laminate has come away from draws and doors. It looks very shabby now for a kitchen that cost £8000. The door on the fridge hangs very badly. I had to have them out early on when found they had put the fridge and freezer plugs where you couldn't get to them. All in all a bunch of cowboys who I would only recommend to my worst enemy. Also I'm lucky to be alive!!!! Do not under any circumstances buy from them. Oh I forgot slay the freezer stopped working and they wouldnt refund the full amount of food lost. Stay away from them stay away!!!!!!!!

This company rips everyone off, even there own staff. The cold calling sales team who make the calls to get what they "Bites" like fishing are all self employed. They probably get what is the equivalent of the minimum wage.

But heres the crunch, out of that minimum wage they have to pay the company for the use of the company telephones, and the desk (workstation) they sit at. The desks are falling apart and the chairs they sit on are ripped to shreds, Even the telephones have dodgy wiring and some are even held together with selotape.

I went for a job interview there once where It almost seemed like I had got the job before the interview started.

They also encourage the staff to exercise income tax evasion by implying that the rules of self employent mean you dont actually have to register yourself as self employed for three months after you start. In other words work for us for three months and say nothing. Most of the employees there are on benefits. I was told this whilst getting to know some of the other employees.

Anyway I started the training and quickly worked out how much of a shoddy outfit this company is some of the methods the sales supervisors use to motivate theyre staff to get "a bite" is kindergarden stuff. an example of this is. All the staff in the call centre were made to stand up and they could only sit down again until they had a bite..

Needless to say I didnt stand up. I got a real funny look off the supervisor when I didnt. But I suppose me being at least 10 years older than her compared to most of the other staff mainly teenagers and people in their twenties I guess she had second thoughts about making an issue out of it.

Cut a long story short, Im surprised I made it to the first tea break. I walked straight past the staff room picked my coat up and walked out.
But Hey if your claiming benefits nd you wanna earn a LITTLE extra cash for xmas on the quiet then this is the job for you. If you have a concience and dont like lying to people then im afraid its not

I gave it a chance
