Today I went in to work to find a skeleton crew remaining to man the office. Many of my supervisors were now doing more shifts on the phone to help make up for the reps that got laid off. I was also kept quite busy, and ended my day with 5 sales.
At one point during my day at work I was called into a meeting where I was informed that one of my companies 4 offices would soon be closing, and that we are basically in competition with our other offices as to which of us get to stay open. The office than puts up the worst numbers gets closed.
I was also informed that if you fail to make a sale during your work day, you will be suspended for the next day, and lose all your bonuses for that pay period. I haven’t had a day without sales thus far, however I am not pleased by the fact that one bad day could cost me so dearly. I think if that happens to me I am likely to start looking for jobs elsewhere. We shall see how it goes.
