Great environment, lack of training
Sales (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 September 2016
This was my first sales job ever, I came into it somewhat knowing the how to just from common sense. However I was told there would be training and there wasn't a single days worth of it.
I was forced to teach myself by watching training videos online and shadowing and listening in to sales around me. I felt like it was a good place to start, I didn't get anything handed to me and I had to fight for the sale.
I learned quite a bit doing this, the process of a sale started to become natural after a little while. The management helped if I needed it, I didn't like to rely on them though. I wanted to do the whole process myself if I was able to. The hardest part of the whole thing was having to train myself, the first month was very difficult, but I eventually caught on and took what I learned with me to the next job.
