Current Employee - TELESALES Representative

I have been working at Yell full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fantastic commission structure Gift voucher incentives Amazing progression opportunities Supportive atmosphere Working hours

Cons

It can be hard work but the rewards are there. It takes a bit of time to get off the ground in the role & as a high performer in previous roles, and now in this one, a month of not selling... initially was stressful!

Advice to Management

Keep up the supportive atmosphere!
