Yes! That's exactly what I did while working for Marketsource (at Target).
Marketsource personnel weren't allowed to "hang out" near the boat (the cash registers &
activation terminals). We were expected to wander around the store, stop guests, and use the G.R.E.A.T. sales method. This was cold call selling at it's worst! This is the hardest form of sales there is! Needless to say, I didn't get one sale out of this, I scared most guests away!

They basically expect you to perform in the same way you would at a kiosk in the mall. Harass anyone that walks by to get a phone or directs. Now they measure your performances by tracking how many people you check upgrade eligibility throughout the day to ensure you're engaging with every guest.

Yes, you do have to sell different wireless services and try to get people to either open a new account or upgrade their phones.
