This job is extremely difficult, but impeccably rewarding.
Direct Sales Account Executive (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 14, 2018
A typical day at Altice is attending my daily meeting at 10 am. From there, I gather my sales supplies, follow up on installations and future or current customers, and then I drive to the field (where it can sometimes be 40 minutes away) where I knock an average of 65-90 doors a day.
I learned that no matter what happens, you have to keep pushing forward. I was yelled at, cursed at, and had doors slammed in my face frequently, but I kept pushing. I learned to never give up.
I learned how to manage my day as I am in charge of my time. I decide when I start knocking doors, and I decide when I go home. I am in charge of how much money I want to make based off how hard I work, so I had to learn how to manage my days well in order to make the most from them.
The hardest part of this job was the discipline. There would be days I didn't want to get out of my car to knock because I would dread having another door slammed in my face or another person say unkind things to me. Day after day for a year and a half I got out of my car.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the people I got to meet. I made friendships from this job whose doors I knocked on and sold internet and cable to. No matter how many unkind people I ran into, the amount of the kind ones I met tripled them every day. Those people made my days worth it.
Exceptional benefits and Paid Time Off.
Working outside in all seasons: heat, cold, and rain for 6+ hours a day and having to work alone for the entire 8 hours a day I work.
