Telesales Agent (Former Employee) –  Fourways, Gauteng11 February 2018
Ideal as a stepping stone.
Not meant to be working there for more than 2 years.
Not a lot of growth available.

The hardest part of the job:
Often you have to source leads which can be very time consuming and counter-productive,
Dealing with fussy clients.

The most enjoyable part of the job:
Getting successful sales,
Booking appointments.

Workplace culture:
People who you work with are normally really friendly and are often like-minded.

Management:
Management gets confusing as you essentially have two bosses with conflicting methods and ruling.

What I've learned:
Persistence, determination, time-management and how to source for leads.

A typical day at work;
- Constantly report to your bosses.
- Reach your target by phoning people consistently.
- Source for leads.
- Communicate with the P.A and schedule clients.
Pros
Negotiable salary, negotiable times, no strict dress code
Cons
If they can take advantage of you, they WILL.
