The Ole Bait N Switch Jobs
I am currently looking to leave my job, and move higher into management. I decided to post my resume on Careerbuilder.com, Indeed.com and monster.com.. First of all i got a TON of offers.. Unfortunately all of them were straight commission insurance companies looking for some dumbass to go knock door to door selling life insurance etc.. They have even got to the point of posting jobs like "General Manager in Training" Ive been on 4 job interviews! Took off from work and everything only to be bait and switched on.. Hard sold on accepting a job that realistically is going to pay me 30k LESS than what I make a year for a "Chance to earn 100k in commission!!!" I hate jobs that pay straight commission and sell a dream or tell you that is realistic to make 60k-100k a year if you hard, but in reality you'll be lucky to scratch 30k selling your soul for it. I thought we were in a bad economy, why are employers cold calling people to come sell their products off of straight commission? Why not just offer a good salary base PLUS commission!
