    The hiring process was easy. I was just myself & got the job even before I had any real sales experience. They were very upfront about what the job would be and that we would be making cold calls to companies.

The people were not very friendly at all and seemed as if they really didnt want to be there.

    Saw an ad in the paper asking for outgoing people who were able to communicate well with others.
