How to Fail at Sales

Working as a sales representative for a Fortune 500 company during an economic recession is the greatest! Very challenging and reward. They expect a lot out of there employees, so to challenge our salesmanship they have enacted the following obstacles to help us build character:
  1. Hiring double the staff normally required to run the location.
  2. Increasing quotas.
  3. Decreasing commissions.
  4. Decreasing the hours the store is open.
  5. Reducing our hours from 40 to 35.
  6. Increasing the cost of our healthcare benefits.
  7. Attempting to change our bi-weekly paychecks to twice a month.
  8. Giving written warnings to anyone who clocks out above 35 hours.

If you couldn't detect the sarcasm, trust me, the preceding paragraph was oozing with it. I had to enroll in a Nursing Assistant class to have a decent second job since the preceding obstacles cost me anywhere from $400-$700 a month.
