If you get an interview here...run! It will save you worlds of trouble. If you find yourself in a interview, don't be surprised when the world's most annoying ringtone starts bellowing through the dingy "office"...this is standard. If the manager is giving you money signs with his hands and giving you the impression that a lot of money is to be made with the company...kindly laugh, thank him for his time and continue your job hunt.
I believe that CareerBuilder.com needs to change the job description to the following:
Come work for Seccion Amarilla where we don't stand behind our work. Our book is full of misprints, wrong information and we have the worlds worst impression with previous customers. 97% of our customers are unsatisfied with their product and "refuse to do business with us again" (direct qoute from many companies).
Here you will utilize your sales skills to be a telemarketer, the leads we give you are bogus and only lead to angry people on both ends of the phone. No territory is given so you will be stepping on peoples feet and will get nowhere.
The sales manager is one of your biggest competitors and has it set up so that when someone gets fired (which is about on average 2 people a week) the accounts that they were working on become house accounts...House accounts go to the managers desk and the managers closes the deal and collects a MUCH higher commission than you would have.
So the moral of the story is when you are browsing on CareerBuilder and desperation starts to seek in because you feel like you can't find a job...take a deep breath and skip over Seccion Amarilla.
