Cold calling job with an unbearable CEO
"software demonstrator" (Former Employee) –  North York, ON14 October 2017
I applied for the position of Software Demonstrator but the first entire two weeks I was there I was told to sit at a desk and cold call people from random states. Near the end of two weeks I was told to do a software demo but the management failed to realize that I didn't have a login for their demo system or the email system, nor was I shown or trained on how to do a demo even once. I was fired based on being unable to make the sale from two demonstrations (that the CEO personally marked as very difficult sales). When I was let go, I mentioned to the CEO that the job postings are false advertising. Instead of taking the advice he criticised me and told me I should read a sales book and that I'll now have to go work a minimum wage job. After all this, the recent job postings from this company are even more sugarcoated.

Despite that, I did enjoy working with the sales team. I enjoyed it because of the enormous amount of trash talk about the CEO. I don't think a single employee there respects the CEO. He's probably the most unbearably hypocritical man I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. He tells employees to keep it short but drones on about irrelevant tangents himself. He disrespects his own employees freely and sets different expectations for different employees (new employees must follow his script; old employees can do/say whatever they want, even if it's exactly what he's telling new employees not to do)

Don't bother even applying here because you will definitely get a call back. The employees themselves told me the turnover is extremely high. They have zero
  more... hiring ethics as their job description makes it sound like this position is genuine. It's not. It's barely a step up from telemarketer.  less
