  • The jobs I have had working on the phone:

    I have worked as a telemarketer selling phone service
    I have worked as a market researcher doing surveys
    I worked for DirecTV taking calls for customer service
    and I worked at an answering service.

    The worst was the telemarketing job. I will never, ever do that again.
    The best pay was both the market research and DirecTV. But I hated both.

    The best job though was the answering service. I had a blast working with the other people there and the job was interesting. We dispatched for a security company, and for a trucking company and it was a lot of fun chatting with those guys. Of course, we had lots of doctors as clients so we got to hear about some strange things. The worst clients were the real estate agents. They were real jerks followed at a close second by the doctors. If I just had to go back to work right now, I would be willing to go back to an answering service.

  • I worked in an Unemployment Call Center, not fun!! In Wisconsin, all unemployment apps are taken over the phone, we would get 100's of calls a day and most of the people were rude and nasty. I would never do it again.

  • I worked for a carpet cleaning company as an appointment setter Ugh!! I got all the people that had complaints. The company had a policy of no strong perfumes, one women insisted on using a hand lotion that permeated the whole room. My allergies caused me to loose my voice and it was requested that the company and I part ways as friends. The woman was one of their Top appointment setters and I was the newbie.
