Wherefore art thou, telemarketers for the Arts?
Company: Indiana Repertory Theater
Posted on: September 12, 2018
What/Where? We call theatre patrons to sell them tickets and/or ask for tax-deductible contributions from our cool little office here at Indiana Repertory Theatre in downtown Indianapolis (across from the Hyatt Regency). This is a permanent, year-round position, Who? You, if you can use a phone, speak clearly and intelligently, and can think and learn quickly. Its not rocket science (not even rock science, actually). You do not have to have had telemarketing experience as long as you have had plenty of talking experience (in English). When? Now, this is the sticky part - the schedule is firm. Coming in late, missing days without verifiable reason, etc, just does not fly here. If you are hired to work with us then you have to work according to OUR schedule, not yours. There were a few that could not understand this and that is why we have a few spots open right now. SCHEDULE: Monday-Friday 5p-9p (must work at least 4 of the weekday shifts) AND Saturday 10a-2p is mandatory. Seriously, if you cant be here at the beginning of each shift at your station ready to work, please, for the sake of humanity, do not waste my time! Ok, enough of that...(but, seriously, do not waste my time). How? I will give you a presentation and LOTS of other papers (too many, probably) with all the information you need on them to sell tickets and get contributions. I will give you sheets of paper with patron names, phone numbers, and other information on them. You put on your headset and smile and dial in your own little calling station. Why? Money.....well, I could say it is because you love the Arts and would gladly volunteer your time to do this; but, let us face it, that is at least half lie. We DO hope that you love the Arts (or at least can convincingly act as though you do), but we DO also realize housing, hamburgers/hummus, Starbucks, etc, are not free. So, we pay pretty well as far as this type of job goes: $12/hr guaranteed OR commission, whichever is greater PLUS bonuses. If you are good you can make $25-30/hr or more-you probably will not at first, but if you stick around and learn from me and some of my other professional agents, you can do it. PERKS: Four complimentary tickets for each play. Free/discounted admission and stuff at just about every cultural/arts organization and some other fun places in/around the Indianapolis area. Very strong coffee.
