So, I've finally got a job with this company, although in a different role.

I'm now working for the 'Parsnip and Pears' project, which is calling people asking if they'd like to try a veg box from a local farm. It's the same hourly rate, and I start on Monday. :)

It's minimum wage I think - so £6.31?

There is talk of sales bonuses coming in soon.

And the hours at the moment are only 14 per week (Monday-Thursday) 15.00-19.30, although I think the days and hours are going to be increased over time.

Still...that's like £350 odd per month that I could do with!

Okay so that went terribly.

I left after an hour and a half. I've never felt so down about working in my life. Utterly soul destroying - and that's even after been congratulated by the boss for getting someone to buy TWO things. It was an endless stream of rejection and sadness.

Back to the drawing board.

I guess I'm not cut out for cold calling.

Hardly anyone is interesting - people are rude, hang up, arsey, the lot. Even the nice people don't care about buying anything over the phone. I found myself hoping I'd get through to an answer machine.

Maybe someone on here would love this job, but for 6 quid an hour, I'd rather go around doing all the Roamlers!!

Well you gave it a shot!

Call calling isn't for everyone (and that comes from someone who did outbound calls for HBOS) so I completely see how it can depress you.

For every shit call I made I had a good team to cheer me up..

Home working never gives you that benefit sadly so it's very hard to normalize things.
