Default Telemarketer Makes 20k

Flip to page 8 of Sunday Times and read about an ex-telemarketer making $20,000 every month working for Citibank and DBS:

Quote:
“From 2000 to 2003, he was a telemarketer for Citibank and DBS Bank and earned a monthly salary of $20,000. He thought nothing of splurging on high-end labels like Louis Vuitton…”
I’m not sure if telemarketers earn this much today, but if they still do, it sure is a very lucrative job given that you only need to make nuisance calls and pester people .

Next time you meet a telemarketer, think about the possibility that he could have a net worth higher than yours (if he’s not a big spendthrift).

I’m a tele marketeer but I don’t even make 5k. Where do I get a job that pays 20k? 10k also ok.

We should COMPARE!

It’s basic economics, if there is an opportunity, we should all go there….

Why stick with !5k or less when you can make $20k!!

It’s always “I know someone” or “I read in papers”… Who knows if it’s only a ploy to get people into sales? I for one know with first hand experience that this is a tactic to lure people into MLM (only the top earns a lot; the rest loses money).

Has anyone scolded a telemarketer before? Slammed the phone? Threatened to report? Vowed to get him/her fired?

Maybe not, then again, it’s hard to compare.

my boss scolded me and slammed phone on me, but he pays me only 3k . I rather be a rich telemarketer and get worse treatment.

It’s hard to deny it’s a comparatively easy job considering what you need to do… no meetings, no complicated reports, no office politics.
