You'll have to be mentally and physically strong to handle, making sure you have sales to get a positive vibe from others if you don't negativity is heading your way and get treated differently. Nobody cares about their workers all they care about is sales
Long hours and short breaks
when you step in there you'll immediately want to go home.management is poor. team leaders and managers are all young and childish.you get thrown under the bus for not making target.a negative space to work in.they just care about making sales and not your health.
Poor wages, Long hours, no support
This is a company you can build itself up to.This is where you can see itself in a years or more driving wotever or having wotever you put your mind to.
If u on target
If target is mot met than you will work one saturday a month but not compalsary
I gained a lot of experience in the different departments - New sales- Rententions- Up sell. I am grateful for the management team as they gave me the vision of my potential and taught me skills that I still use today. I appreciate the experience and opportunity that I was given and would recommend people to them especially ones with no experience. Hardest part - outbound cold calling. Culture - also made it exciting with incentives and prices for being top agents (awards). Most enjoyable - meeting people and building good work relations. I loved winning the prices like phones , money etc..

Learning how to deal with negatives on a daily basis and never letting it get you down or in a bad mood, most enjoyable part of my job was the challen
-A typical day at work was stressful, meeting your targets. -There will always be negatives in your job but that should never make you become a negative person regarding your job especially. -Build good relationships with management, colleagues and customers. -Hardest part of the job was convincing customers.
This is the worst company to work for. They do not care about anything besides the team making sales they make you feel like a failure if you do not make sales for an hour. They are quick to congratulate for that moment and then quick to shout as well. Your job is at risk everyday because they always say they can replace you.
Sell direct marketing had been thee worst company I have ever worked for. Although they give you free food twice a week, which could rather pay that money wasted into our salaries instead. All managment within this business are slow, and can't keep anything private. Everyone knows everyone's business. The team leaders give absolutely no support to their team, no motivation and go as far as pushkng the team under the bus to save themselves.... Team leaders are always smoking when they are needed to be helping their team. Or even standing on one side having a conversation with each other about NON RELATED work things . At the end of the day all the help that could be provided by the team leader isn't there and then the rest of the team never makes there targets and has to stay after work to either work or to have a meeting. Salary which states R4000 + uncapped commission( which is only 20% chance of it happening within the first year), so basically your salary is R3960pm... Long hours with sometimes no 2nd tea breaks and having to stay after work for a 10 min (30 min)meeting even though the contract stated 2x 15min teas and 1x 30min and working hours. From 8am to 17.00pm. I Advise everyone to take a deep look through their contracts and question everything you find strange. Management and team leaders are all young, too playful and don't take their job seriously.
If you looking to make easy money, this would be the place to be. Uncapped Comission, regular incentives to keep you motivated, free lunch and who doesn't like fee food. Really appreciated by those who can't afford to buy. Really convenient hours so that I can get home early and spend time with my family. I would really recommend this company to anyone seeking stability and trying to find their feet.
