  • I would prepare yourself to be yelled at and belittled by random strangers on the phone. If you can take verbal abuse from faceless strangers then I think you'll do fine.

  • I worked with a market research company even though we weren't selling anything people were still very rude. Just don't take it personal. It's a job and they don't know you. Good Luck!!

  • People are beyond rude. I used to work at a call center, for a bank. People get crazy over money, I was called every name in the book. You just have to learn to take it or you wont last long.

  • My husband did it a couple of years ago. He hated it, said he felt guilty calling these people because he knows how much he hates getting those calls. He didn't get called a lot of nasty names though he just got hung up on a lot. He was also paid a very low base salary then commission so he didn't make a lot of money doing it. Good luck to you!
