as a former telemarketer, 100% agree.

you guys need to get a life. you dont think they hate their jobs enough already without morons f-ing with them for doing their job?

believe it or not they DONT try to call you at dinnertime. but you only notice when its dinnertime. and if they make 25 calls an hour, what do you think the chances are that at least one person is going to be eating dinner? we tried to space the calls out around the nation so we werent calling between the hours of 4-6p, nor were we calling after 10p. but mistakes happen.

grow up.

I don't normally have a problem with them. BUT, If they will not take no for an answer and keep trying, as I try to say no, I mess with them.

When I say NO, I mean NO. If they want to waste my time after that, I will do the same for them in return.

if you say "No." and they leave it at that, they CAN get fired. i was a telemarketer for 2 years and over that span of time i knew 6 people who were fired for not rebuttling. if, however, someone says "Please remove me from your calling list", we couldnt rebuttle.

so rather than getting mad at him/her for having a job and doing it right, why dont you just play the game and get removed from the calling list?

Again, you just keep getting calls then. If you're lonely and just want someone to call and chat at you regularly then keep on keepin' on. trust me some really old people will just chat at the telemarketers for a while and say "im not interested but call me next month".

The magic phrase is "take me off your calling list".

Without that you might as well just buy something, donate, take the survey, etc.
Cause they wont stop.

Vince Vaughn used to be a telemarketer. I would have killed to hear how this would go down with him on the other end.

OMG, I was laughing before but when it got to this I about died at my desk at work

Nice play by play Eric. That was great!! I'm gonna have to do this to someone now

Not to get on a Tangent here with you..... If I get a person that is polite than I too will be polite... When I get the same person calling back several times over during the day after I have said No Thanks, and politely asked to be removed from the calling list... I have in the past ended up speaking to a Supervisor to be removed from the list...

Again if you are polite to me and when I say No thanks" Which means No I don't want what your selling " And thats the end of it I will be nice... Keep cutting me off and try to force it down my throat then I become an A$$...

just a sidenote, if you "just hang up", i preferred that immensely to "f* with them"

honestly, rebuttling was as annoying for us as it was for the "customer". i hated doing it, but that was my job. for anyone to get pissed at me for rebuttling when theyve said no is just asinine. dont get mad at me for doing my job. if you dont want to listen, please just hang up. if you get mad at repeated calls, just use the magical phrase "take me off your calling list" -- and if they dont, then you get to sue the company, if thats what you really want.

if youre getting called by one person repeatedly, talk to the supervisor. they arent doing their job right.

but theres no call to be rude.
