You are not your own boss. They will hound you with emails and phone calls to get you on the phone and want all of your time. The scripts are long and endless, awkwardly written. There is nonstop talking for fifteen to twenty minutes. Pay is 20 cents per talk minute. Customers are pressured into upsells, and there is an average of twelve to thirteen upsells/downsells when all they want is to order the product they want and get off the phone. There are system crashes, too. Lots of them. Then there are the third party offers, which is a joke and no one wants them. You are to push these on the customers regardless if they tell you no three or four times. Too many rules, too much pressure. And you will sit there and not receive calls. Oh yeah, you MUST work 10 hours every weekend. Work five hours each day, or ten in one day. There goes your weekend. And many of the customers are nasty and yell at you. I guess it's ok for some, but for most people, it's not a good job at all. Look, I get that this is a sales job. I've done phone work for years and I don't mind it. I wanted this to work for me. The idea of working from home sounds great, and it was nice to drink coffee and vape between calls in my pajamas. But honestly, I hated every minute of it. It got to a point when I'd commit to the schedule and I'd work for a little while but then I just couldn't take it for more than two hours. Some folks are made for this kind of thing. I am not, and was thankful when I didn't have to do this anymore.
Work from home, who doesn't love that?
Just about everything
