Tell me about telesales

Is it really as bad as people make out? Tell me about it as i could get a tele sales job tomo for 6.15 an hour, and its just down the road to me. I only want a job to get some money so this wouldnt be long term, just a few months.

    Its grim, I did tele-marketing for one week and it was foul. Some people can do it though, you just have to be able to block out the fact that no-one ever wants to talk to you and you are only being really annoying all of your day.

    I couldnt do that and it ended up depressing me. If you want quick cash you could become one of those 'chuggers' you know the charity muggers with the clip boards, they get about 8 quid an hour in London. Which incedently is why you should never give to them because most of the money just goes straight in their pocket.

    I dont know where your based, but something like www.monster.co.uk I think it is does jobs, they might have it. If your in London then go on www.londonjobs.co.uk they definately have them.

    Or just go onto Google, I'm sure you'll find something.

    But, not only will you be widely hated by all the public but you wont actually really be helping the charity very much either.
