Positive & uplifting environment in the office with co-workers helping each other in a non-competitve atmosphere.
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 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.
