Pros: being able to work independent of supervision allowing me to bring creativity to my job
Cons: difficult to sell a product completely useless to most visitors
A typical day at work involved a combination of marketing new products and services and administrative and operational duties.
As a sales associate at Mobilicity I was required to keep an accurate account of sales inventory; cash and revenue reports while advertising new phones, plans and short term promotional plans.
The ability to multitask, pay attention to detail and be resilient were the most important functions of the job. The Mobilicity location was an experimental booth located inside a metro at the edge of the coverage zone in Southdown, Mississauga.
Locals who often visited the metro were outside the coverage zone which meant they would not be able to get service. This made the phone plans uninteresting to most and helped me develop resilience as my attitude towards selling was unwavering and always enthusiastic.
In addition, I was the only one untrained by Mobilicity. This did not however, stop me from selling the most phones out of a team of three individuals.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work without supervision allowing me to apply different marketing strategies every day.
