Shady Business

DirecTV Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) Fort Mill, SC

ProsAbility to make some large monthly commision checks, (3k-4K) as a top performer. Youthful work environment with generally good people to pass the time with.

ConsDarwinian at its worst. Sales team managers are constantly under pressure to maintain stratospheric goals, so even it you had the most sales for the year and then happen to land on a bad month, your head could be on the chopping block like everyone else's. Had to also defend personal sales ethics on multiple occassions against Team Leaders who wanted to push unethical sales tactics on the team in efforts to reach goals and beat other teams. Unsavory.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the time management system requiring employees to log-in and out for breaks and lunch, treat your employees like the professionals that they are instead of mechanized selling machines that need to be herded and accounted for like sheep. Penalizing someone for being a minute late back from the bathroom is ridiculous in nature, and clouded by management's fear that without control, everyone will take advantage of them while decreasing productivity. Treat them like respected human beings and sales professionals, and I think you would be amazed how far a little freedom will go towards adding to the bottom line.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
