Does anyone work in call centres, both cold calling
and anyone just doing research marketing (not selling)

if so, where are your companies and how much do you get paid!

ive worked in a few call centres doing telemarketing (wizard homeloans, aussie home loans etc) but this required getting reps to come out to your home
im more interested in just doing over the fone surveys n stuff, no pressure!

i just sit there and call up people that's used our services before , and inform them that there are new deals/promo's and stuff when we're in their area since they're a past customer etc etc.. and if they want to book in we can book them in and shit (we call that a sale)

sometimes if there's no one to call they'll give ya some clusters from whitepages and tell ya to spread the word.. etc etc.

basically, if you reach a certain amount of sales, you'll get a bonus. and if you exceed that certain amount of sales, you'll get the bonus (it could increase depending on how much u get) and as well as commission (i think it's 6% of total sales).

we also handle commercial bookings, but i don't do that.


in inbound all you do is just sit and wait for calls.. and sometimes do quality checks. if it's a really slow day, just ring up people who recently used our services, and just ask them how it was. what was good what was bad, etc etc.

every week we have a new game to play. and we're split into teams.. the team that wins the game picks 1 envelop from 3 envelops. 1 of them has 30mins early, the other 1 has 15mins early and the other 1 has 1hr early.

everyday saturday if you get 4 sales , you get 30mins early, and if you get 7sales you get 1hr early, and every friday we have a raffle drawn and you can win stuff, (for example this week we had $20 gift voucher, $20 petrol voucher, cutlery set, digital camera, photo frame set)

thats basically all there is to my job.

i'll attach a picture of desk because i'm so proud of it! :D

I work for Parktrent Properties Group at their call centre here in Wollongong. Cold calling from 5:00 through till 8:30 of a week evening. I get around ~$16 an hour before bonuses, which depending on how well I go, can push it from anywhere between $18 and $30 (but very few get up to the thirties).

I hate the job, but I like the atmosphere of the place. I'd like to be a supervisor, so I wouldn't have to call, just fix problems/motivate teams.

I just started working doing telefundraising

don't do cold calling telemarketing or anything that involves money + cold calling. it's really boring and it blows. i'd much prefer working in retail...
