Calling former canceled customers all day...
Pros: management at salem va was awesome
Cons: feel like a jehovah's witness
The sales side of this job is terrible. There was one guy who had been there 2 decades and had tons of contacts. He got fed all the hot sheet leads and received preferential treatment. Everybody else was part of the revolving door system. If you weren't knocking doors like a Jehovah's Witness, you would sit there and call people who had canceled their service in the past. They get called several times a year, so be ready to get chewed out by severely annoyed people. Same with doors. They have reps knocking the same middle to upper class neighborhoods every spring so people get sick of it. Of course, sales is a numbers game. For every 99 people who threaten to kill you, 1 will say yes. So you'll get some sales in there, but it's such an uncomfortable and even unprofessional way to go about it.
