• Want to be a Real Estate sales person at 19 in Illinois..need advice and help.?

    Best answer: Real estate sales is a shark tank in the worst possible sense of the term. Sales ability and charm aren't going to be enough for you to rely upon at first, and I would strongly suggest that you start out by working for a big company with a rock solid reputation to start.

    Best answer: Real estate sales is a shark tank in the worst possible sense of the term. Sales ability and charm aren't going to be enough for you to rely upon at first, and I would strongly suggest that you start out by working for a big company with a rock solid reputation to start.

    Start out at the bottom where you have the ability to watch and learn from the seasoned professionals - in a high end company that caters to high end clients. Your reputation is going to be everything, and so will be your skills. There is a lot of context, inside knowledge and etiquette you need to learn from being in with that.

    Get yourself a really nice suit, and find the best companies around. Ask the biggest dogs in the pack for an informational interview and buy them a decent lunch. Ask them how to go about this, and whether they would recommend that you do. Someone may see you for a talent and take you under their wing, and if they don't, you will still have the opportunity to see them in action even with you. that sort of experience is never a waste of time or money or effort. And who knows, you might get hooked up with someone really good. if they think you're quick enough, they may want to keep you close, rather than finding you to be the competition later. They may also need some slave labor.

    Regardless of the reason, do what you can to charm your way into a big name firm, even if they have you making copies. That on your background and having your ear to the ground can be worth a lot. Go ask in person, remember that the lowliest of workers can make a difference, and you are always being watched- in the parking lot, while you're waiting, and across the street. Be "on" from the time you leave your house, and treat everyone like they own the place.

    You have a couple of years before you can actually do the job, so the more you can marinate in the business, the better. Go start at the top and find somewhere to do that. It will give you a chance to either flourish or decide you want to do something else. Even if you decide against it, this will all be education you will use for a lifetime. Go rub elbows with the professionals, but start with the best you can find.

    I have been working at my job as a sales associate for two years. The management and my GBL have known for a year that I want to become a Manager. I am a hispanic woman with a bachelors, management experience and 2 years experience at the store. my GBL just offered a manager position to a coworker who has only been there 5 months and has 0 work experience. She is not a sales associate, she works in the back with operations and sits infant of a commuter. Mind you, she is white. I am not racist and I really like the girl but I know that is discrimination and favoritism.

    I am in my 30s. There was a previous job I had where I was a telesales person for the company. I was booking appointments daily and sending my sales manager to various size venues of companies to sell our service. Sales manager 74. He started by always looking me over, my body, I would back up and show my discomfort. He asked me to go to coffee with him and I declined. So the telesales people were making an hourly plus commission. Every time this sales manager came back from a perspective client where I set the appointment I would ask him how it went (because I do get commission) he blurted out to me "You don't care if I am hungry or tired, only about money" I think being self supportive and the last I checked I was in there for money , I just found that odd. why would I care about him not eating and he can eat anytime he wants. But yet other telesales people wanted to know about commissions and him himself and that's all fine. One time I was joking with him and he mimic a clover "she loves me , she loves me not, she loves me , she loves me not" and he could not fathom the fact that I was not interested in him and he was way older. In the end he got me terminated and even a co worker was shocked because I did such a good job.

  • Is being a team member the same as being a cashier?

    Best answer: a team member can take on many responsibilities. If you job entails working the register only then you are a cashier. IT depends on what you are actually doing.

  • How to ask boss for commissions? (Business Professional responses please)?

    So I have been with my company a full year now. This is my first fulltime job out of school, so I haven t done salary negotiations before.

    So I have been with my company a full year now. This is my first fulltime job out of school, so I haven t done salary negotiations before. Today my boss called me into her office and gave me a small raise. However, to help me commit to the company and not leave, during my first year I was given a 3 month, 6 month and year bonus. This year there has been no mention of that. So technically I am getting paid only about $1,000 more this year than last year. My boss has also said I am getting trained in doing some more account manager work and direct sales. I am happy to do this and learn more, but I feel it is reasonable to ask for commissions on any sales I generate, the same as the sales reps get. Should I ask about this from the get go in making sales inquires? Or should I prove myself for a bit by making sales, and then ask for commission on them? Any advice from business professionals is greatly appreciated :)
