Strictly sales oriented and strongly dependent on manager
Sales Rep/Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON23 January 2012
There is very little training for those having a difficult time with the sales aspect of the job however, most of it must be learned on the job through experience. Initially it was a fantastic job with great bosses but through the high turnover rate (including upper level management), the stability is simply not there in the organization.
Pros
competitive pay, flexible hours, most locations available by public transit.
Cons
no interaction with colleagues, numbers driven, long days, need vehicle in order to be promoted

Telecommunication Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 October 2013
Opportunity to work in in fast paced environment with team members or alone. It taught me how to be patient and focus oriented. The best thing I learnt is to never give up. Keep trying, and the result will be in hand. Sometimes, we give up after utilizing 99% of efforts.
Pros
Flexibility
