Note this company also trades under the name WAE+, waeplus.co.uk.
I’ve noticed the company We Are Electricals have numerous complaints online. A lot of people think they’re running a scam, they’re not a real company, etc.
They are a real company. I should know, I was interviewed by them for a job, or rather, by Turn90 (but I don’t think there’s any difference between Turn90 and WAE, or any of the other companies that operate out of that office). They are a real company in the sense they have an office and they interview people for jobs which are presented as being legitimate jobs. They are not a particularly professional company, but they are real. It may well be that their business model is to take your money and give nothing in return so they can hold onto an interest free 30 day loan, but they’re technically a real company.
I view the whole thing as a close escape. Most of these complaints have only sprung up recently and WAE would look really bad on my CV.
I don’t know if they really still exist though. I walk past their office every morning and there are never any lights on, although maybe I’m a little too early.
[update: clearly, they do still exist]
