Closer, Warwick, RI - March 24, 2016
Even though this company is extremely difficult to work with, I valued my time there as I was able to pick up many valuable skills. VMS Alarms (Now Alliance Security) is the definition of an Old-school Telemarketing venture. They cold call all over the country utilizing a team of lead generators in the US and India and turn over any potential leads to a small team of closers who use a script and set of rebuttals to attempt to close a contract deal over the phone. Our sense of camaraderie in and teamwork in the workplace was very strong, as if we were in the trenches of some kind of war together. However the compensation for closers such as myself was 100 percent commission and the job is in fact grueling and very difficult mentally in every way.
