When I heard I had the chance to come back to Hastings Direct it was such an amazing feeling, I couldn’t wait to start. I wanted to return to Hastings Direct because I believe it’s the perfect company to work for and I have to say it’s by far the best company I’ve ever worked for. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and this is reflected in the positive working atmosphere. The way that you’re supported and mentored as a Team Leader, is very rare to find in a company these days and that speaks volumes for how good the senior management team is.
I’ve loved every single minute of it! It’s like I never left, everyone has been so supportive, friendly and I’ve tried to pick up where I left off. I think returning to Hastings Direct has made me appreciate the company even more and I would recommend working for Hastings Direct to anyone I meet! I also think working within the Sales Triage department has really helped me gain a better understanding of the business and actually helped me develop as a Team Leader.
My main goal is to expand my skill set, become a better Team Leader and help the business that has supported me so much. I think over the course of the next few months, I would like to gain more knowledge in regards to the commercial side of the business and the different areas within the department. I believe with the help of the senior management I can really progress within the company.
The shifts in customer service teams are quite colleague friendly. There is free tea and coffee in the call centre, and a subsidised Costa Coffee and canteen. There are lots of incentives to earn more, and a decent social life.
It has a really positive environment with everyone who works there being very helpful. The managers really do go out of their way to assist you. There are a lot of benefits and rewards at Hastings Direct which if you are doing well are quite easy to achieve.
There is a well-rounded approach to the wellbeing of all colleagues, including an inclusive approach to wellbeing activities. Hastings Direct aims to roundly develop colleagues and set them up for future careers within the company.
There is a wonderful work environment, with a strong sense of team work which purveys throughout the business. And there is a sense of friendly competition which works to heighten this.
As an employer, Hastings Direct offers a lot of company benefits to all employees which are fantastic and I feel this is quite unique. The company culture is inclusive and encourages everyone to participate in local causes.
All employees are well looked after, respected and recognised for the hard work we do for the company. It is a great experience to be working with such amazing team. It much easier for me to balance my work and personal life.
It’s a great place to work with amazing benefits, support and colleagues. Lots of hands on support. Amazing rewards for achieving targets and also plenty of time to get together as a team outside of work and bond with your colleagues.
The company culture, management structure and general atmosphere is really good. The share scheme and Hastings Direct rewards are also fantastic for staff.
