I've done salesy kinds of jobs before but this one is the least cliche... no bells, no cheesy routines etc. There was one guy who I started with who had done selling before and seemed a little bit "salesy" in an estate agenty way. Seemed alright at first but as time has worn on he's REALLY started to get on my nerves with his comments and actions....drug dealing in the cigarette area... making comments like "Who the hell can live on £16,500 a year... that's poor people wages!" then going on about how great his sales skills are and demanding a pay rise because they gave him a company car (he's telesales who SOMETIMES makes appointments but isn't field sales). He rants on about why should he be on the same pay as me and two other girls when he "has more experience". Well we have degrees and have consistently met our targets and he's missed his.
The last two days he's really annoyed me during a training session, trying to get me involved in some company product that is of no use to me or my customers and going out of his way to wind me up.
I'm finding ignoring him and ranting to my sister when I get home usually works, it's obvious he has a low esteem as he's under performing in something he thought he'd walk.
Tell me about your annoying co-workers and how you deal (or have got your own back on them!) with them.
