Written by ex devere consultant on October 13, 2012 From Cardiff, Wales, UKI would gladly stand up in court and swear on oath that 90% of the devere IFA's are ex salesmen of some discription with out any financial background, but are promised the earth and training to become qualified IFA's. its total ***.
the recruitment procedure is very slick and once you have been "accepted" you go on a 3- 4 day training course. this is basically 4 days to learn a script...... ALL the devere sales guys start there meeting with the following lines. the purpose of this meeting is for me to tell you about devere and partners and for you to tell me about yourself.... devere and partners have over 40,000 clients in 40 countries thru out the world............ and they carry on with the script..... if you learn it parrot fashion and can come across without it sounding scripted you will get accepted..... you then have to go to your destination office and then the *** fall out of your world............ you are left to sink or swim...... no company back up the managers are complete and utter morons who dont care about anything or anybody other than therre own pocket. I didnt like the way they operated and left the company, leaving me out of pocket to the tune of Â£6000 plus. you have to wait months to get paid not weeks and they dont care if you need money to survive........ its your problem......... to ANY GUYS LOOKING AT JOINING THEM.......... DONT DO IT......... THEY WILL SINK YOU. I WAS LUCKY MY FAMILY BAILED ME OUT AND GAVE ME A CASH INJECT TO RESTART MY LIFE..... OTHERS WONT BE SO LUCKY...... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
