Deceitful Management, Deceitful Culture and Cannot make it in Canada
VP Sales (Former Employee) – Calgary Alberta – 31 January 2017
The head hunter will call you to join as VP of Sales. He will tell you that you will get leads and can make 300k annually. The HR person will call you and tell you that you will get 100 leads a month. You are then interviewed by three other people in Florida, and San Francisco. These are all interviews over the phone. You then fly to head office and are interviewed.
This is a work from home office. The base for first year is 100k then 75k the second year and then on full commission. None of the US employees or UK employees know anything about Canada and have never visited. The management has never sold anything in their life and have always had jobs in admin. The staff do not know the difference between rrsp, rrif or tfsa.
Once you start you realize the leads are 5 years old and that countless people have called already. The other leads are internet leads with 50% wrong name and phone numbers.
Fisher has failed in canada. The US sales force could not cut it here. Out of 14 VP hired in the last three years only four remain.
They expect you to do two deals a month. But with lousy leads and the relationship is handled by an investment counselor in Camas Washington.
The returns have been horrible and impossible to close business.
Nothing i can think of
Deceitful call center mentality cold calling the whole day
