It is a good teen job start
Door to door sales (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 7, 2015
Work was always after school so it wouldn't interfere with my education. Our supervisor always picked us up and took us to a different work area and assigned us each area. After each day of work we would count our sales for the day to know how much we would make the next week since we were paid off commission. I really learned to put my fear aside of talking to strangers and put what I was selling out there. I learned that in order to be heard or to "make a sell" you had to use your voice and sell it not just expect someone to know what it is you are trying to sell to them and buy it. I also leaned that in order to maintain a job it requires responsibility, patience, and discipline. The co-workers were always friendly and respectful but if any workers had tension it was always best to put those feelings aside for a better work atmosphere. For me I think the hardest job was the beginning, being the new person. It was like starting school but just getting paid to sell your product to people in different areas. I also thought it was hard to talk to strangers since as a child my parents always told me "Don't talk to strangers" but after a couple days I was able to put that all aside and do my work even on rough days. The most enjoyable part of the day was always the end of the day after all the sales for the day were in and we saw how much we improved and reflected on that day while we went home. At the end of the day, based on our sales, we would always make goals for ourselves in order to get further position in our job.
