Pros: great training, opportunities to travel, some fun bonuses, fun team building exercises, great leadership learning/development, fun environment
Cons: nothing specific, but like any job, nothing is perfect. sales can be a challenging industry/position
- Typical day was great - I would come in and chat with co-workers and get prepared for my day. We would have meetings and trainings and then go meet with our clients. We would return in the evening to enjoy what we did that day and just get ready for the next. It was a great balance of in and out.
- I learned a great deal - about public speaking, – more... dealing with customers, product training, sales training, leadership training/development, DISC personality training, I got a bunch of great practice and training on actually training other people.
-Management was great, fir but fair, understanding and reasonable but still easy to follow, great leaders.
-Co-workers were great, not going saying I was "best friends" with everyone, but certainly got along with everyone and really enjoy some of the relationships that were built.
-Hardest part is certainly dealing with different types of customers/clients - but once you have seen a bunch its like anything else, it becomes easier. Outside face to face rejection can be tough
-Most enjoyable is either the A) daily instant gratification that is available or B) helping others and seeing them do well – less
