I learned quickly that getting fired was done quite often to employees who could not sell cell phones or other devices.
What do you do when you're a commission-based salesperson, and your boss refuses to let any customers come your way? They just stand there, claim everyone who walks through the door and makes your job impossible!
That's today on Office Horror Stories.
Here's a preview.
"I learned quickly that getting fired was done quite often to employees who could not sell cell phones or other devices. It got so bad that my boss would threaten us daily that if we don't get out there and sell, we will get canned. Most of the time, she was not even at the store running "errands" or sitting in the backroom doing absolutely nothing. Corporate managers came in one day and had a meeting with her and once they left, she ripped all our heads off with the "YOU NEED TO SELL MORE OR WE ARE ALL GETTING FIRED!". This turned quickly into HER trying to outsell US employees! She would literally stand by the door, and once a customer walked in, she would bombard them with questions about what they needed to buy and pushing every new electronic device on them."
