Don't get me wrong, I LOVED cold calling. I found it exhilarating to make a sale, and liked the hours.
But the pay is awful, your first portion of your commission goes to making up their sub-minimum wage pay. Then the commission is capped. So even if you're killing it, like REALLY killing it, top caller, you're making max $17/hour. And that's only for a month or so.
Call center manager is really an emotional wreck and verbally abusive. I hope he finds happiness.
