  • It is a kind of telemarketing. You would be responsable for calling generated "leads", and talking to them about the company's product or service, without a whole lot of info, the point would be for you to set an appointment for a salesperson to meet with them. It can be a fine job, but make sure they aren't inflating the pay to include standard bonuses etc. If the pay is advertized as hourly plus sure you have the entire compensation plan explained to you before you sign up. I have know people to try this kind of work, thinking they would make great money...only to find out they were really making min wage...and it was almost impossible to hit bonus because of the way the system was set up.
