Delta maybe peaking in FL? Debating on our trip to Universal with unvaccinated kids in 20 days. Sounds like most of the cases are in the schools which we obviously be avoiding. Airport, resort, park and back. Crazy to still consider it or crazy not to go?

I have a boss from hell. She’s the GM of my hotel and she is a mean girl that never grew out of highschool. She loves gossip. She will trash talk her employees with other employees and once her toxic garbage starts to leak amongst us peons she will send a group text telling us all to stop spreading rumors and to stop being bullies like she isn’t the mean kid with a magnifying glass torturing ants for no reason. I want to stand up but I’ve seen her retaliate on people who have tried to. Help.
There is a house that I really love that is on the market for 680k. It was built in the1800s, and while there are some updates it is still super vintage. Anyway it’s been on the market for a little over a week. Is it considered a bad offer at 640k, we let them pick the close date, and I waive any price reductions due to inspections?
I really wish the big law firms in Canada were as transparent about their pay and bonus scales as what we are seeing in the US. Does any Canadian firm share bonus scales??

I have been substituting in an ESY program this summer and last week I worked in a room with three paras who were just so disrespectful and uncooperative. It created such a stressful and uncomfortable day for me. I have been asked to cover the room again this week. Although I have spoken to the administrator interns, I feel anxious about the situation because I feel they will again try to sabotage situations and put me in embarrassing and risky situations with the students. Any suggestions ?

Auditor turned industry, wondering how auditors would view this. Invoice received 5/1 for software license from 5/1 to 12/1. We paid invoice 6/17. We book Prepaid to A/P on 5/1 and expense accordingly. Is this wrong because the prepaid is technically not prepaid until 6/17? What have you auditors seen in practice?

Poll: do you think your firm will allow full-time remote work moving forward? My high-end litigation boutique has yet to speak on the issue but it appears they’d be receptive to allowing a mostly remote schedule. Would obviously be most helpful if you named the firm or the tier of firm.

Does your job email a bunch of hoorah emails congratulating reps on sales? It just becomes a bit annoying and demotivating especially when it’s the same person at times.
Should we start a forum to discuss customers that have horrible procurement directors? I feel like we should be able to warn fellow sales professionals of traps, tricks, and just overall waste of time.
My company recently changed my commission plan by capping half of our variable payout, resulting in the sales reps making roughly 30% less on commission checks when going over quota. Obviously this has crushed spirits, and I’ve lost any motivation to crush quota. How do I stay motivated ? Or is it time to find a new job?

I had an interviewer show up late to an interview and then apologize and say that he’s handling an emergency situation. So, I’m relatively flexible and I say that I’m totally fine rescheduling and he says he’d rather just do the interview. He didn’t have his camera on, he’s in the car driving and talking to me. At the end he gives me his objections and I counter them and then he gives me “an assignment”. To write him an email marketing the company. These are all red flags right?

Hello everyone. I am searching for sales professionals with 3 to 5 years experience that are searching for a new job opportunity. Must be based in USA or Canada.
Is it common for Amazon to advertise a job role, only to alter the job listing to something else by the interviewing stage? I applied for a BDM role. A few days before my interview I saw that the job listing had changed to SDR. I asked for an explanation, but they said they were getting over qualified candidates so they had to change the job description and title to represent an entry level position. Nothing against SDR’s but that’s not what I applied for and it was a waste of time.
How do I answer the question “why are you leaving your current company”? Without shitting on my current company?
For background, my company hired me and 6 other sales people back in August 2021, I’ve had 3 different VP of Sales since then, have literally 2 customers on our product in my vertical. Marketing and product are horrible, the CMO is the CEO’s daughter and she’s only ever worked for my company.
I’ve had a fair amount of success in a couple of direct sales ventures, but I’ve ultimately never risen to the top because I’m not a great teambuilder. I’m trying to figure out how to pivot my career & make something from the skills I learned there, but I’m not really sure what that would look like because I never saw myself getting into sales in the first place. Where should I go from here? What is the pay structure typically like in entry-level sales jobs?
I have been in SMB and MM sales but just started an Enterprise AE position. I’m working on email templates and am curious if any other Enterprise AEs would recommend separate email templates for companies with 250 users vs 1000+ users? My manager recommended setting up separate email templates but. I usually just have 2-3 generic plug and play templates that I tweak based on conversations/typical pain points. Just want to see if there’s a case for separate templates that I might be missing
Landed an interview tomorrow with Zendesk. I’m so excited for this! The role is for a business development representative. I have around 8 YOE in sales/client services.

I work at a small CRM company in SaaS sales. It’s a small 35 ish employee company with a family-like culture.Been here for 7 years and usually make about 125k gross/year. I work remote, travel the world for free few times/year attending conferences, and just try to sell as much as I can. No stress, no quotas and what you would probably consider a “kushy” sales job. I feel like I could easily be making double at a salesforce and could land the job fairly easily with my experience. Worth the leap?
