Found these stories on a website, and thought I'd share in case they
go away. Most are good reads.


In response to the last 2 entries on your site, I must say that there
are definately stupid people out there!!

First of all, the person writing "Pacesetter Pride" should sit down
and look at their story on this site and see how really ridiculous it
looks. WOW...Impressive career. Less than a year with the company.
Two years in the business. What makes this person an expert?
Obviously something made them leave. Maybe couldn't handle the work
and are bitter?

I too remained in the home improvement business after I left the
"Bucket of P***" and realized that other manufacturers have quality
products at REASONABLE prices with less overhead. But I also
realized where all the profit was going. In the General Managers

Also if this person is so wrapped up in email addresses, where's

With no intention of turning your site into a chat room, which
probably wouldn't be a bad idea by the way, the second story I read by
"Employee Rebuttal" also drips of Pacesetter brainwashing made me want
to puke.

I did basic training with new employees for years at Pacesetter and I
know the mindset of what they preach. The author of that entry failed
to mention that basic training teaches new employees to "sidestep" or
IGNORE what the prospect is saying to them on the phone. Basically,
set an appointment with anyone you can.

Of course they would title their entry "Employee Rebuttal" because
that's what they pride themselves on; their remarkable rebuttal
process. Basic training telemarketers is all about rebuttals and how
to use them. That's fine and dandy but in order to get a bang for
your buck you're not looking for someone that was manhandled into an
appointment in order to make a sale as opposed to someone who is truly
interested in your product.

In closing, I would like to say, my career with Pacesetter allowed me
to be financially comfortable, own my own home, etc. but I'm totally
disgusted with myself for waisting as much time with them as I did. I
just wish I'd been smart enough to let my career last "almost a year"
instead of 20 years!

Actually, I make up the (stupid) titles for each story, although I do
try to use at least one significant word from the message itself.
