I worked in sales, and though the company was a good one to work for, working in sales specifically was tough. It is a fast-paced and stressful job. What made the job so demanding was the amount of work that was expected of each sales team member. Because of this, it was tough to achieve any sense of accomplishment. Coupling this with the fact that accounts could call at any time (day, night, weekends or holidays) with concerns, questions or complaints, it was as though the work never ended I was always on the clock. There were those who thrived on that environment, but it was not for me.
Fast-pased.The day was done when the work was done.
Never felt like I was "off the clock". Complete work was sometimes unattainable.
