Behind the Scenes: A Day in the Life of a Zimmer Radio Sales Rep

Posted by Zimmer Radio & Marketing Group on August 1, 2016 at 9:00 AM

When they actually get someone on the line, their objective is to close the prospect as soon as possible, then move on to the next name on the list.

  • 94% of salespeople say base salary is the number one factor in their job search
  • 62% of salespeople say commission is the most important
  • Growth opportunity is the most important factor to Millennial job seekers
  • 69% of people would not take a job with a company who has a bad reputation, even if that means staying unemployed

The reality is, people often settle for jobs that either aren’t the best fit for them or that don’t compensate them for what they’re worth. Unfortunately, it’s a trap many people fall into as they get into the “I’ll take anything” mode in their job search.
