Sales Manager/Team Leader (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – January 16, 2016
Pros: Short hours when quota was met
Cons: Cold Weather
A typical day consisted of morning meetings. We would than head out to a designated area where we would offer our services to potential customers in that area.
I learned to keep things from becoming personal. Some people do not like door to door persons so they would slam doors in my face. However; I would not allow this to affect my mood and proceeded to the next home.
My management team was very happy with my sales that were very consistent, I was given my own company van and a team of 10 trainees to supervise, motivate and make sure they were able to hit their daily quotas.
Then hardest part of my job was motivating my team to keep up their smiles and high spirits when it was very cold outside.
The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to train my team and be able to consider them my friends. The respect they had for me was amazing and inspired me to be better.
