    Yes, it was just an email, but my boss basically told us if we don't increase sales then he'll find people who will.

    This is the first time he's ever threaten me with my job. I'm all mental now. icon_sad.gif I wish I could just win the fucking lotto. icon_mad.gif

    This is why I don't apply for jobs that have quotas. I think you should start looking for a new job.

    You should find a boss like mine, he's totally lax and lets me grab his dick and jack him off whenever I want.

    Of course it does help I run my own business and my boss is me =D

    Start offering blow jobs as an incentive with each sale.

    Do your best. Nothing more. If y'all still don't increase sales, he knows HE will probably be the one taking the ax first. Threats don't increase sales, and his superiors will likely make that flawed approach clear to him as a final lesson while showing him the door.

    Just let him blow you and buy from him daily. That'll help his sales and you get your fun.

    I'd mop floors before I'd take a job in sales.

    I think his job is on the line and he is projecting that on you. Either way this doing more with less attitude is here to stay. If you don't like the pressure, go back to school and jump careers.

    I have mopped floors. Fun stuff. I actually prefer janitorial work.


    I've done plenty of work that (it seems) a majority of people would find demeaning, or low on the social ladder. It was always better overall than any job I've had working sales, or meeting some kind of quota. I slept better at night, too. lol

    I have a class that's named "Introduction to Company", where we learned how to motivate workers, the do's and don't 's. Guess where that type of approachment falls...

    If he pulls that card often, maybe you should consider finding a new job. You can't work/live if you're emotionally unstable.

    Sorry man you are in high pressure now. But I guess there are days when one can have a high quota and others just terrible. Keep doing your best and learn how others do it, watch out for technique, what makes people tick, know your product well. Try and read the customer, don push too expensive if you feel they can't afford it. Give a choice of high middle and low, and above all I would make them feel good about the purchase. Best of luck these are only my ideas, i have never done sales.

    Really unprofessional in his behavior, even if he has his own pressures... he could have impressed upon you the need to improve without taking that tact.

    I agree with the others, get with it and find another job.

    I own my own business but have always been into sales.. I have always found it great that I got paid to make friends cause that's what it's all about.. Your boss probably has someone coming down on him as well..

    quotas, incentives. They're just mindfucks. If you call a spade a spade, it's just pushing someone on someone who doesn't want it. It's a recipe for unhappy workers who hate their bosses.

    It's sad that there will always be people who have to take these jobs.

    I think bigsmiles is onto something.

    Bad Boss = JUST GET ME MORE
    Good Boss = What is the obstacle, what can we do to overcome it?

    I hate jobs like that! My old department placed quotas on us and it was a nightmare. It still is actually.

    I eventually moved out of that area and become a business analyst. I cant wait for the day when I can cut out shit like quotas.
