Perks and Programs

We asked SalesRoads to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Contests and Prizes: SalesRoads offers contests that vary in style each month. Any employees who succeed in their goals for the contests will receive points that they can accumulate and use to buy prizes, from gift cards to electronic gadgets like kindles or ipads! The more you succeed by, the higher the reward.
  • Flexible Hours: Keeping a good work/life balance is tricky for those who work from home.  We understand, and allow our employees to take time off as needed.  In many cases, they can choose to change their work schedule around as needed, so as to not use unpaid time off. If someone who is full time needs to be out on a Friday, they can let us know the week before, and work 10 hour days Monday-Thursday, should they wish.
  • Working from anywhere safe, fast and quiet: We believe that dedicated people can benefit greatly from working from their homes, because they can control their own environments. Some employees also choose to work a few hours a day while on vacation, and so long as they have access to fast, secure internet, and a quiet place to work, we are able to accommodate that.
  • Peer-to-Peer learning: Because we have employees from all over the country, who have various experiences and proficiencies, we do a lot of one-on-one trainings that we refer to as peer-to-peer learning. Each session, we ask our reps to come up with a challenge or two that they are facing, and then discuss that issue with their assigned partner or partners for that session. The partners give their suggestions and feedback, and then each participant writes down and sends in some key learnings from their session. We then post some of those key learnings, so that everyone can benefit!
  • Online courses: In addition to our robust trainings and coaching sessions that we do in-house, SalesRoads provides other learning opportunities in the forms of virtual sales conferences, online courses and certifications.  Our employees are encouraged to register for on-the-clock conference events and then share their key takeaways with their colleagues in our team meetings.  Through our payroll administrator, we offer various courses and trainings that are free for our employees to take to help them hone their skills, and add to their resumes.
  • Career Advancement: Because we stand behind our commitment to Professional Development, we seek to promote from within- offering management training for promising sales staff, helping callers to learn new skills and move into management roles within the organization.

How to Get Hired

We asked SalesRoads for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

The ideal candidate would be: Self-Motivated, Tenacious and Disciplined Charismatic, Persuasive and Professional Efficient, Organized and Detail-Oriented Flexible and Creative Able to work in a fast-paced environment A good listener- A seller must listen more than they talk to ensure that a client is qualified, engaged in our discussion, and excited about our suggested solutions.  A good leader- We look for people who feel comfortable leading discussions and taking charge of calls to instill confidence in our clients.  Since we also promote internally, we like to look for and foster leadership in all of our employees. A good community member- We like to ensure that our new hires are the type of people who will contribute to our community- providing feedback, offering helpful suggestions, and supporting their fellow teammates- to make sure we are connecting even in our virtual workplace.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

You can expect to role play during interviews. If a candidate can present a smooth, well thought out, benefit-oriented pitch, then overcome objections and sell the interviewer during the role play, that’s impressive and stands out.  In your cover letter or interview, showcasing quota or goal attainment in your previous work can get our attention, but it is not a sole deciding factor.  We also look for people who can show that they are enthusiastic and quick to learn new skills.  Someone who is prompt, polite, succinct, engaging and personable is eligible despite previous experience or lack thereof, so the best thing you can be is interesting to talk to on the phone!

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Because we are growing at a rapid rate, we are adding new campaigns all the time.  For the foreseeable future, we will be looking primarily for Appointment Setters, then secondarily Full-Sales-Cycle reps and Inbound Customer Support Specialists. 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

We encourage you to go to our website and look through some of the descriptions of what we do.  A lot of our website is geared towards explaining our services to potential clients, so should you have additional questions, please feel free to use our live-chat feature to ask our rep!  We also encourage interested parties to fill out an application.  It is a fairly short application, so each question we ask is important, and we urge you to please consider each question carefully before submitting.  We are, above all, a sales organization, so be sure you can "sell us" on you!  If we like what we see, we will reach out for an interview, so we urge you to prepare some questions to ask us when you are submitting your application.
