ok so the name of this company is dpi, but they sell this highly priced vacuum called Kirby. its like $2500 for a vacuum, but its made from best shit ive never seen before. but anyway, the much more better term for my position is basically salesman. its still customer service type shit cuz we have to go to the clients homes and provide our services, but these are clients that are on a list. so there's no door to door salesman crap. the pay is good from what i understand. its $2000 salary/month but they pay every week, but here's how it works: if you break down $2k a month, thats $500 a week. so basically if my sales are more than $500 a week then thats what i get. if i make less than that during each week for about a month, they pay the difference at the end of the month to make sure i have $2000. its not bad but monday, ima see how much of a challenge it is to make a sell. im still in the training phase (and btw its paid training) so i probably wont start to work until a week from now i assume.

HINT: some of yal already kno what it is, just think about it (why "clone" one when u can have the real thing, if you kno what i mean)

ok so the sales job was just basically a pyramid scheme and i was at the bottom of the chain. i really got frustrated after only 3 presentations, going door-to-door, and ended up doing all that work for nothing. the worst part was that it was for 12 hrs, and this is what ima have to do for 6 days ina row?!?!? that, so this morning i basically quit and tried convincing me to come back and i told them i wasnt feelin the job.....so back to square one, again :(
