    I worked at Verastar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Met some good people during training.

    Cons

    After nmw increase in April, my wage should have improved but hr argued I was on salary so pay varies. Don't have a day off, they can't sack you but they will sure as hell make you want to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Owner of company was approachable but mid level management wasn't. No promotion or training opportunities.

It is the epitome of a dead end job, everyone goes to work miserable and cannot wait to leave. Seems to be one rule for management and another for “lowly advisors”. So ridiculously understaffed it’s hilarious, the amount of mental breakdowns that occur is positively shocking and the...

    Not even worth putting anything to you guys it’ll only be swept under the rug anyway.
