The euphoria is definately over...

I was feeling alright after the first few weeks of work. Loads of young people about having a laugh, speaking to people on the phones....all good. Now it's getting me down. Trying to get 80 year olds to instantly buy insurance as the majority of our targets are based on inbound quote instant conversions is not something i like doing. To add to that, i'm 31 and know i messed up a lot in the last few years however it's annoying when there is an under 16 year old doing the same job as you and actually getting paid more as his tax code is low because he's young. It really gets me down. I used to have a good job and be well paid, i need to actively look for something better as i don't think doing this long term will be good for my sanity. At first i liked it mainly as i was meeting new people and socialising, but when i've got 10 years sales experience and am being beaten by someone just out of school or who used to work at John Lewis because they want it more than me, or are happy pressuring elderly people into buying then it does make me question and reevaluate my life...

1 month and you're about to go postal :-)

Work sucks no matter what you do - the only time I've ever enjoyed my job was when I was self-employed. It'd be nice to get back into that again...
