    Telemarketing is the worst job ever, I have a lot of sympathy for people who have to do that job..

    No one has to do that job.

    Anyone who decided to do this for a living has to expect/know it's not going to be pleasant.

    Hell, I would rather work at McDonalds than be a telemarketer

    Holy shit. That woman is in serious need of some xanax. I thought that no one despised telemarketers more than I, but I'm very wrong.

    This is freaking me out. She keeps screeching. I think she's bipolar.

    Poor Alex, he just stays so calm........

    She keeps threatening to do things to his FAMILY. YOUR GRANDMOTHER WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO HAVE A REGULAR PHONE NUMBER! YOUR WHOLE FAMILY'S TAXES WILL BE AUDITED EVERY YEAR FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES!

    She's gonna have social services go to his home, because he says the phone rings all the time at his house.

    YOU ARE A RAPIST!

    She says telemarketing is much more invasive and a permanent pain than being raped? WTF?

    Wow...........

    I don't get telemarketing calls. I pay $5 a month to the phone company, and 99% of them are blocked. Worth every penny.

    Well, telemarketing definitely pays better, about $8.50-$9 an hour to start where I live. I found myself in the position of having to do surveys for Ipsos Reid once when I was desperately unemployed, and although I wasn't a telemarketer, I was treated like one. It is absolutely amazing the abuse people will hurl at you when they think they can get away with it ...it's kind of like the Internet that way, actually. I had one woman insist her ex-bf had put me up to calling her. I kept trying to explain that the numbers were randomly generated by a computer, but she was livid.

    Because I know how horrible the job can be between stupid employers and mean-as-hell ordinary people, I usually do a couple of surveys a year as a good deed for old time's sake.

    I'm the same way. I take the stupid surveys.

    I try my best to be polite to telemarketers and surveyers. I've even taken a few surveys. If I don't have the time, I politely say:"I'm sorry, I'm busy", they keep on so I say "excuse me, goodbye" *click*. If they continue to call, I threaten them to take me off their list or I will press charges (yeah right).
    No big deal.

    I worked for MBI for a while and it was a nerve-wracking job.
    Some of those surveys can go on for an hour (!) and you have
    to read scripted prompts (i.e., lies) to keep them from hanging up
    ("Just a few more questions"..."Just a little bit longer"...
    "It varies from person to person"...).

    And then, at the end of all that, some of the questionnaires
    -- programmed into computers -- asked questions that disqualified
    the person who'd just spent 59 minutes answering your questions
    about coffee/pop/favorite shoes/whatever.

    Seriously. The last question on one of these surveys was,
    "Are you between the ages of 21-55?" And the lady says,
    "I'm 59 years old." All those questions for nothing.
