More specifically sales rep over the phone. I'll be going to work as be working as a sales rep over the phone for the first time on Monday, so any tips or experiences will be quite helpful.

Also any experiences in any sales position actually would probably be helpful, since at the end of it, either in person, or on phone, you're trying to make a sale. I'm just worried about all the calls and what I should be saying, but I'm pretty sure I'll be taught everything on my first day, just see what I should be anticipating.

I'm just glad I was finally able to land a job after months of looking.

Talk really fast and with an annoying accent.
Tonight, we stagger out from the basement...


I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.

that was my original plan. lure them in with the sex talk and then. BAM make a sale for something they didn't even see coming!

be ready for some people to be the biggest dicks to you. my cousin works as one and some people are really bad. my advice is if it goes sour then just hang up right away. and have an upbeat voice.

Get ready to be hung up on 90% of the time. Don't get frustrated it goes with the gig.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

I can imagine, I've been dicks to telemarketers myself on the phone. But I'll know not to take it personal, I'm just doing my job, if people get mad thats their problem.

That's one thing my brother taught me. He's a stock broker and said never give up after just one no, but rather acknowledge it and simply throw a fact at them, or say something like "that's fine sir but if you would give me just a moment of your time to listen to some good ideas"

If they just are consistent with the no, then give up and let them go.
