Being an E & TC Engineer, Vodafone gave me opportunity to work in networking domain, especially in communication over long distances, configuration setup, connectivity troubleshooting,Network
maintenance, hands on troubleshooting in routers,switches,firewalls functioning in live production network.
There are more than 7 night shifts per month due to foreign clientele and network configuration at night.
Having immense interest and good amount of regular hands on micro controller programming and embedded system software development, I have been continuously looking for better opportunities. To keep working on embedded software development, IoT sensors, I kept working on embedded projects and Linux. Programming skills are good because of understanding and visualization of any kind of problem in object oriented way.
It was overall a good experience a Vodafone, but truly it is not something that i wish to keep working on anymore.There were some financial constraints hence I had to keep holding the job, for the period a little longer than planned.
The level of job satisfaction was never up to the mark and kept craving for core work or stack development. Hence I don't see myself going ahead anymore with this company. There were concerns about work culture and intense hierarchical issues and treatment received from seniors.
Hence on wards I wish to continue what I am really good at and have been practicing for the same, taking extra time and efforts. Hopeful that qui

A day starts with the conference call by senior, noting the day plan and discussing specific agendas for the day, if any.
after a gate meeting is schedule before market opens, to let the first liners know the day agenda and targets to be achieved for the day. next is the market working named as FCLC(First counter to last counter) with any of the executives and discussing new products and services into the market. Apart from that, had to also work on merchandising, distribution, handling retailer complaints, mails.
day ends by sending achievement for the plan given.
Learning the best part of the job, as it helps to built interpersonal skills, multi tasking, data work, forecasting. Management and co workers are very much supportive in terms of learning things, but has a competitive environment.
Hardest part of job is to be update with the changes, as it a fast pace sector, and policies, product can change any time, updating and communicating these changes to team is bit difficult.

First off, the bonus scheme - they tell you that you can get up to £2000 extra in bonuses but when they get your payslip they deduct from the bonus itself. Each month my bonus should have been £180 which they would tell me, but on the payslip it is deducted from and halved.
Second, employee mental health. They preach that they cater to it but don't, and especially during the Covid-19 pandemic where all employees were working from home. It was stressful being cut off from people, but they removed systems and processes to the point we couldn't do anything for customers and were frequently yelled at for not being able to do a simple thing we could have done before. It wasn't until six weeks in that they gave us alternate processes.
Thirdly, they don't treat their employees like human being. Some of the processes are poorly explained or subject to interpretation that it becomes so easy for an employee to make a punishable mistake. They talk about the severity of these issues but do nothing to make them easily avoided as they should be, and the employee pays the price, not the company. I have watched hard working people lose their jobs or put under more stress by the company for simple mistakes; breaking down in tears at their desks and where are management? No where to be seen. It's other colleagues having to step in to help before being yelled at for not being on the phones. There is no such thing as compassion at this compan
Ας ξεκινήσουμε ότι όντως όπως γράφουν και οι υπόλοιποι τα συστήματα της εταιρείας δεν λειτουργούν δεν βοηθούν τους εργαζόμενους και είναι απαράδεκτο για μια εταιρεια και καλά τεχνολογίας. Από τη άλλη οδήγησε στη τρελα έχεις να κάνεις με όχι νορμάλ κόσμο για πελάτες και δύσκολο κόσμο που δεν μπορείς καν να συννενοηθείς και να εξηγήσεις αυτά που ρωτάνε δεν βγαίνει άκρη γιατί δεν θα καταλάβουν. Απαντάς τα ίδια ερωτήματα 1000 φορς; τη μερα πχ : γιατί τόσο? Εγώ τόσο πληρώνω. Ακούς τα ίδια πράγματα συνέχεια περιμένουν να βοηθήσεις αλλά με τις ηλιθιες πολιτικές της εταιριας και να ήθελες δεν μπορείς να βοηθήσεις ούτε πελάτες ούτε τον εαυτό σου.

Μεγάλη προσοχή: Χειραγώγηση, gaslighting και εργασιακό bullying
Μεγάλη προσοχή σε όποιον πάει να εργαστεί σε αυτό το κάτεργο διότι οι άνθρωποι είναι αδίστακτοι. Αν και τις πρώτες μέρες σου διαφημίζουν ότι η Vodafone μια είναι σούπερ εταιρεία που σέβεται τον εργαζόμενο, στην πράξη αποδεικνύουν το ακριβώς αντίθετο. Προσπαθούν να σε χειραγωγήσουν με άθλιες μεθόδους και καταφεύγουν από την πρώτη μέρα σε gaslighting με συνεχή ψέματα, μια τοξική συμπεριφορά η οποία μπορεί να έχει συνέπειες στη ζωή σου. Το επικίνδυνο είναι ότι εκείνη τη στιγμή δεν το καταλαβαίνεις αλλά όλο αυτό μπορεί να επιδράσει με δυσάρεστο τρόπο στην ψυχολογία σου, σε σημείο να πέσεις σε κατάθλιψη.Το 99% των εργαζομένων δεν το καταλαβαίνουν και ποτέ, βάσει της εμπειρίας μου. Όλα αυτά, με μόνο σκοπό να σε χειραγωγήσουν και να σε κάνουν λάστιχο, να σε έχουν του χεριού τους ή, όταν δεν σε χρειάζονται άλλο, να σε απομακρύνουν. Το χειρότερο που χρησιμοποιούν είναι το εργασιακό bullying, το οποίο επίσης οι περισσότεροι δεν παίρνουν χαμπάρι διότι είναι νέοι στην πλειοψηφία τους. Προσπαθούν βασικά να έχουν όσο πιο νέους μπορούν στους χώρους εργασίας όχι μόνο για να βγάζουν μια νεανική εικόνα προς τα έξω αλλά για να τους εκμεταλλεύονται χωρίς πρόβλημα επειδή δεν έχουν την εμπειρία να ορθώσουν ανάστημα ή να αντιληφθούν τι συμβαίνει. Στα καταστήματα διατηρούν μόνο όσους μπορούν να ελέγχουν απόλυτα, δεν συνδικαλίζονται και δεν έχουν ζωή γενικά. Προσπαθούν να απασχολούν νέες γυναίκες αλλά όχι πολύ ωραίες, ώστε να διατηρείται η ομαλότητα στους χώρους εργασίας και να μην έχουν προβλήματα μ

Δεν υπάρχει καμία μα καμία συνέπεια με τα όσα σου παρουσιάζονται στην αρχή, ότι όλα είναι τελειά, είναι εργασιακός παράδεισος κλπ. Στην πραγματικότητα μιλάμε για ένα κανονικό κολαστήριο. Κανένας σεβασμός στον υπάλληλο, δεν υπάρχεις σαν άνθρωπος, είσαι μόνο ένα νούμερο. Χρησιμοποιούν ηλίθιες / κουτοπόνηρες μεθόδους για να σε χειραγωγήσουν και καλά, προσβολές και ειρωνείες στο φουλ από team leaders που την έχουν δει θεοί, ενώ την ιδιά ώρα είναι πανασχετοι, κάνεις τους δεν έχει ιδέα να σου δώσει μια λύση ακόμη και για απλά πράγματα, 10 άτομα να ρωτήσεις θα πάρεις 10 διαφορετικές απαντήσεις, καμία συνεννόηση μεταξύ τους, δεν τους έλεγχοι κάνεις. (Υπάρχουν λίγες εξαιρέσεις αλλά αυτό και πάλι δεν αλλάζει την κατάσταση και την εικόνα, η πλειοψηφία των team leaders – supporters είναι καβαλημενα ψωνακια με υφος 100 καρδηναλιων και φουλ κομπλεξ, εντελώς άσχετα με το αντικείμενο, τεχνικές γνώσεις υπό του μηδενός ).
Δεν υπάρχει καν ουσιαστική εκπαίδευση, καμία οργάνωση, όλα είναι στον αυτόματο.
Παράλογες και τραγελαφικές διαδικασίες, ακόμη πιο παράλογες απαιτήσεις που δεν έχουν κανέναν μα κανένα ουσιαστικό νόημα και ακόμη πιο άθλια συστήματα - εξοπλισμός δεκαετίας 80!!

Vodafone is a great company to work for. Obvious benefits are huge discounts on your airtime which cut a lot of money of your personal phone contract, the signal is genuinely good and when offers are on its great for selling.
This place is great for teaching you general social skills and complaint management, and the downfall is in the word. Management.
The stores are franchised (kinda like McDonald's or subway) so it's not officially vodafone, leaving the partner agents to do what they please. The partner agent at the Warrington store is fantastic. Could not fault anything with them at all; empathetic, genuinely cares for your well-being, chatty, upbeat and always brightens your day.
The store manager however is not. They are a great manager for a store, but they are not a sales manager. They're more a manager plus a sales agent. They do not help you generate sales, they go so far as to take sales for themselves if you're on the wrong side of them, even though the sales they make do not go towards their bonus, like yours do. They are not open to any idea of change, it's either their way, or no way. They do not motivate you to generate sales in any type of way, and only focus on the negatives of your performance. Even after a month of having the highest sales targets in the store by a lot, and hitting every statistic apart from one, they will zone into that one that you didn't hit, and make you feel worthless.

Από πού να ξεκινήσω?
Μόνο αρνητικά μπορώ να πω για την εν λόγω εταιρεία καθώς στους 11 μήνες που έκλεισαν στην Vodafone ήταν σαν να μου έπινε το αίμα, ψυχολογικά είμαι χάλια από την 2-3 ημέρα εργασίας αν θυμάμαι καλά,
χαμηλού επιπέδου συμπεριφορά από τους Δήθεν Team Leaders, πόσο μάλλον από τους 2 Δήθεν supervisors που τα βλέπουν όλα ρόδινα και την Manager του τμήματος, σαν να είναι όλα φυσιολογικά και δεν υπάρχει κανένα απολύτως πρόβλημα και σε όποιον δεν αρέσει να παραιτηθεί.
Γιατί μιλάς 10 λεπτά με τον κάθε πελάτη ακόμη δεν ξεκίνησε η βάρδια σου και δεν έχεις τελειώσει καμία κλήση κάτω από 6 λεπτά?

Να σχολιάσεις τις αναμονές που έχει περισσότερο που αφορούν παράπονα των συνδρομητών παρά για τεχνικά προβλήματα?
Τις βλακείες που κάνει ο κάθε agent στους πελάτες και μετά ξαναπαίρνει, σε βρίζει και με το δίκιο του?
Να σχολιάσεις το ότι χρειάζεσαι βύσμα για να πάρεις άλλη θέση?
Είχα κλείσει 9 μήνες και έστειλα βιογραφικό για άλλη θέση και η απάντηση του Δήθεν HR είναι ότι βρέθηκε καταλληλότερος διότι οι δεξιότητες και τεχνικές γνώσεις του προσέγγισαν καλύτερα τις απαιτήσεις του ρόλου.(Το τι δεξιότητες και τεχνικές γνώσεις θα μπορούσε να χρειάζεται κάποιος για ένα τμήμα το οποίο αφορά πάλι εισερχόμενες κλήσης ένας θεός ξέρει).

A challenging and demanding role with good rewards.
My typical day was opening the store, completing daily tasks, such as cash management, stock reports and checks, accepting in deliveries and return products to the warehouse. Respond to daily communications such as sales figures, training requirements or other store requests for help and assistance. Would rely important information back to the store team. Supervise, motivate and train staff, under direction of manager. On several occasions ran the store inbetween managers coming and leaving the store and during annual leave. As well as effectively managing and delegating tasks, I also managed my own sales targets, gave great customer services, promoted, persuaded, negotiated and listened to customers about products and services. As superviser I would have to manage difficult situations with customers, trying to resolve issues straight away, as well as deal with staff issues.
The role changes depending on your level and how many hours you work. Began as a 16 hour trainee and grew and developed myself into supervisory level and full time.
Hardest part of the job is the constant pressure of targets, striving to achieve targets on a monthly basis. In addition working as part of a very small team of 5. If a personality clash occured, sometimes it is not possible to avoid that person in the way you can in a larger store or office with more than 5 team members. Found progression can be slow in many instances in getting to higher levels in the retail side, as with small teams you may

The benefits you seemingly get working for Vodafone are wonderful, along side the positive attitude of everyone who works there, upon first encounter it seems like a wonderful place to work.
In all honesty, it is pretty great, at times, everything other than the physical job is wonderful, the way they take care of staff is lovely, and generally speaking everyone is there to help everyone and management is wonderful.
However, some of the elements that your job performance is entirely based on are things you can't control. For example:
- Those scores you get back after a phone call (the ratings that sometimes get sent out) are something that heavily monitors how successful you are in your job. The ones Vodafone typically send out are ratings for;
> Vodafone as a whole
> Service from the person on the phone
> System experience.
Now, only the 'Vodafone as a whole' score matters, you could be receiving constant 10/10's for the service you're providing and the system experience for the customer but those aren't counted or taken into consideration when looking at you as an employee. It's hard to change someones negative opinion of a company as a whole if they've encountered a lot of negativity in the past, no matter how good the one experience with you as a call taker was. Which, is unfair.
However, there's more, those surveys are sent out to everyone, even those who you can't gain account access for (without account access you can only really point them
ProsGood pay, wonderful internal staff and management.
ConsLong hours, long strings of shifts (6 days, with one day off), and an unfair review system.
been with the company for a few years, worked hard in different stores with a performance always above average, years later i'm still stuck at the bottom of the chain as a sales adviser. progress is way much more about politics and how you project yourself to others than based on actual personal achievements. this company prefers to reward unproven people and unlawful cowboys, instead of people who do the right things the right way that won't put themselves in front of others.
it's a sales job so there is quite a lot of pressure to sell and at the same time keeping the customers satisfied, which is incredibly hard as there are many different variables why customers won't be happy and the liability is on the adviser that gets to serve them. at the end of that you will be personally blamed, named and shamed as it impacts on store performance, even if you haven't done something wrong, doesn't matter.
considering that bonus is won and lost not only through sales but with customer satisfaction scores it makes the reward very random as you deal with 100s of customers a month and each unhappy one has a massive impact over your bonus pay. this often leads to deflation as you have to work on the edge most of the time to only seldomly get something in return.
the culture (depending upon managers and regional managers) is often not the healthiest as it hard sales more than ever, putting the advisers under high pressure to sell additional products every time someone comes to a
