Pros: salary guarantee and complany benefits. it's sales
Cons: the company policy that 90% turnover is acceptable. not a long term stable career!
Recently, a typical day at work is that another person quits and my supervisor says, " I need to hire more people".
I am the most senior Direct Sales Rep.(DSR) and I have less than 3-yrs. with the company. Their were 14 DSR's when I joined the company less than 3-Yrs. ago. A stable work career, I think not!
I have learned that not one of my direct sales supervisors has my back and that management can and will take punitive action against me even in times of personal hardship.
Management seems overloaded with activities that has nothing to do with identifying and promoting winning sales strategies, motivation and encouragement of their sales team. I appreciate my DSR supervisor but do NOT want the job.
My coworkers joke about who is next to leave, and how they are looking for other sales opportunities.
The hardest part of the job is knocking on up to 100 doors a day and not getting a sale, only to have management take action that I believe hampers and hinders my sales ability. So, I have to guard against the many inconsiderate and rude prospects, but I must also protect myself from the company and my supervisors. It sucks!
The most enjoyable part of the job is having a successful month where I earn a good commission that's double my monthly salary.
I leaving soon too.
