Looking back at what I’ve done in my telemarketing career, such as it has been, my one regret is this: going back to companies where I worked previously, thinking a second chance there would work out when the first chance didn’t.
Now, this does work for some people, I know. My main problem with a lot of the Tampa Bay boiler rooms are the work conditions. They put ads in the paper (now a days its Craiglist) where they tell you A,B, and C. When you fill the employment application, they don’t tell you anything different. But when you train there, A becomes X, B becomes Y, C becomes Z. In other words, what you’ve been told to get you in the door isn’t what actually takes place.
So if you ever find yourself in that position, going to work for a telemarketer you didn’t originally like the first time, ask yourself that question. What is so different now as opposed to what was happening then? It may save yourself some employment heartache.
