Pros: salary based position. full benefits, 401(k), free cable bill and flexible rewards.
Cons: going door to door in all types of weather, selling an inferior product, most customers had a bad experience with cablevision, i did not need my college degree to enter this field or obtain an entry level sales position.
Great hours for my lifestyle. 12-9 p.m. Tues-Fri and 9-6 p.m. on Sat.
Different scenery and a changing environment outdoors everyday.
After 2 years I developed dynamic relationships with my co-workers who would help me out physically and mentally to be successful.
I truly enjoyed talking to people about tv, phone and internet daily.
It was the easiest – more... and the hardest job simultaneously because the company did everything for you besides sell the product to the customer. Management was also very helpful and invested in you.
I learned a lot besides the basic product knowledge I became a persistent and complex salesman through experience on my own. It was a very beneficial stepping stone for me personally and especially my career as a resume builder in the sales field.
I truly believe there is no sales position I can not be successful with due to the experience and knowledge I obtained as a residential account executive with Cablevision. Making cold sales door to door by building rapport from scratch on a doorstep with all walks of life is one of the hardest types of sales to make, in my opinion. This was a great entry level position to introduce me to sales and give me a taste of success in this field. I will not be pursuing a career in any other field simply because in sales you decide your destiny and your income. I studied communications in college and more specifically interpersonal relationships, and in my opinion there is no other field that lets you practice your communication skills like selling cold. – less
