family run company that got too big for them to handle
field sales (Former Employee) – hicksville – March 22, 2015
You are Dumped in a neighborhood to knock on doors and get door slammed in your face. Most people that have had slomins in the past have nothing good to say. You have to work in all types of weather. Rain snow/blizzard. Pay is ok if you don't have a family. This is definitely not a job if you have physical limitations because of all the walking.. all management does is sit in a van and tell you to sell. And after you make a sale you only get a $25 commision..
benefits. weekly pay
poor management, bad commission structure, long hours.
Appointment Setter (Current Employee) – Hicksville, NY – February 1, 2015
A typical day at work is to call hundreds of potential customers for leads. I learned about the oil fluctuations. Management is good. Co-workers are nice people. The hardest part of the job is to write oil & alarm leads. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting bonuses on your pay check.
Telemarketer (Former Employee) – Hicksville, NY – June 9, 2014
Wasn't horrible but I watched someone who was there before me sit on there phone and pretend to make calls and made no appointments. Its cold calling for alarm and oil heat, so yeah no one wants to talk to you.
CUSTOMER SERVICE/SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Hicksville, NY – January 22, 2014
My normal work day would include answer phone to sell or assist customers with security.I learned to work in may different environments and different sales techniques. My management was wonderful and became life long friends. Co-workers always polite and fun to work with. Hardest part of my job was having to go home after my shift. The most enjoyable part of my job was assisting customers over the phone.
Appointment Taker (Former Employee) – Hicksville, NY – February 3, 2013
A typical day at work consists of logging in to the network database of prospective clients, placing a high volume of phone calls and hoping for the best responses. I learned how to cater my telemarketing pitch on the fly based on the flow of each conversation. Management served to motivate and inspire to psychologically get staff past the rejections. My co-workers were interesting. The hardest part of the job was staying motivated through the above 95% rejection rate. The most enjoyable part of the job was successfully getting new clients.
