My friends in sales are currently making close to 100k at 25 years old and only have to work around 4 days a week. Beginning to HIGHLY regret my life decisions. Jesus

Sales is really stressful, a different stress than we are used to.


*shiver* would never work sales.


Lots of creatives are under 30 and make $100k+. Just wait until you crack senior. Trust me, it'll come.

& I'd like to think our job is at least a little bit more fun then sales 🤣


If you have the personality for it, great, but even at my age I wouldn’t want that pressure.


Eh I grew up the child of someone who works in sales, the lack of stability can really get to you after awhile... you have to really save for a rainy day, because if you suddenly dont perform/the market shifts, your base salary is literally shit


Not sure where I heard this but keep in mind: “comparison is the thief of joy”



All great points. I’m bitter, broke, and experiencing a moment of weakness… 😂 thank for all for the insight


The four days a week thing is tempting. BUT I’m 26 and make 90. Come to the pharma side!

how? 🥺 Desperate AF over here to get out of retail

Job stability in sales is almost zero (I mean its not great anywhere, lets be real), but one bad quarter and you are out. Agencies/Shops don't want to hire sales people because they have little strategic vision: its sell sell sell (or at least thats that stigma), so then your stuck in sales for your entire life. Oh, and don't forget, you have to travel and wine + dine clients. Fun at first,but when you are on your 3rd steakhouse in a week, and your clients want another late night, you'll soon wish you made less and worked for an agency. Imo Sales people should be paid more because its a thankless and grueling job.
