I've never really done telemarketing. I just know that everyone says its awful. I mean, it doesn't really sound all that bad. It doesn't sound fun, mind you. But assuming you don't get paid by commission, what's the awful part about it? I mean, sure you'll probably burn in a special place in Hell. But other than that, isn't it just being paid to annoy people? How's that different from most other jobs?

Ah, but that's the rub. Those jobs are commissioned. The also have tough quotas; that's why they are so agressive, rude, obnoxious and unethical. I have my personal evils, but I couldn't stoop to that.

hmmm... I expect that wouldn't be acceptable under PA law. Here, you can work when you're on unemployment, and in fact, you are required to if you can, but your UC check is reduced based on how much money you make. If you work enough, you make nothing on unemployment. So I'm thinking that if you worked telemarketing and did nothing, they'd not pay you but UC would. If you do well at telemarketing, then UC pays you nothing.

Of course, either way... special plane of hell.
