You arrive at work just before 8am to practice your pitching with fellow co-workers. from 8am onwards there's a team meeting where achievements of other coworkers and goals reached are acknowledged. you then continue your day dialing out. I can definitely saw i learned about goal setting and reaching and time management during my time at Optex Group. The management was smoothly run amongst many different levels of management. The hardest part of the job was the cold calling and target reaching.
The job was nothing near like what they said in the interview. Spending the whole day making cold calls and begging people to buy insurance and getting sworn at a lot. You get treated poorly and even let go if you don't achieve laid out targets. And the awfully loud music played in the call center makes it near impossible to think let alone hear the "clients" over the phone. And they make promises of making you a millionaire which is very hard to believe since I haven't seen a lot of new millionaires and business owners popping up in the Vaal Triangle. False promises are made to reel in unsuspecting victims.
Very long hours, Very short break times, Have to wear a suit like your are going to your wedding everyday, No basic salary, only comission.
A typical day would be just to be yourself and not to hide behind the thoughts of people judging you. You help other people to grow in themselfs by helping them get through their struggles. The invironment is very energetic. Hardest part of the jobs is not to let negative people ruin your confidence. Most enjoyable part of the job is the people become your family.
It's a life shifting business, where you grow in who you want to be
You have to be tough to make it through every day with negative people
I used to work at The Optex Group and had such an amazing experience, the amount of learning I gained from this company was unbelievable, everyone that worked there were always willing to help others and uplift each other, positive vibe with a positive paycheck..!!
Incentives, Personal Development, Yearly Events
Can't think of any
Company that tries to take advantage of people's situation. Lots of lies told. An example of when it's too good to be true, it usually is. Environment can seem rather racist. Avoid if you can.
No basic salary, tedious work environment, racism, promotions are fake
