Check out this Post of Shaming a Sales Rep...so fucked.

Anyone else SO over this kind of behavior from the same leaders who yell at their SDRs to "smile and dial" until their fingers bleed?

He outs somebody, gets outed for it, and deletes his post. The irony lol. Can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen, champ.Β 

Good riddance to people like that.

Man. Dude leads a 7 person company and thinks he is above everyone. The email was clearly a template, but still provided a tiny bit of value (by linking PDF)...

What a dipshit. The rep sent a harmless email with an "opt out" button...OH THE HUMANITY!Β 

I guess His Holiness is too important to spend a millisecond clicking that button or the "delete" button in Outlook. He also referred to the rep as a "salesman" and a "he" when she's obviously a woman by one look at her profile picture. His profile picture looks like it was taken in 1988...too embarrassed to show his current appearance, I guess.

I hope all kinds of salespeople send him their best pitch via email for the next year.

And the guy doesn't have the decency to take out the rep's cell phone number. Also, it appears the email that he copied had an unsubscribe button. What a buffoon.

Right? That prospecting email wasn't even offensive.Β  Short, quick value add and a harmless meeting CTA.

I feel bad for the rep. Has she responded?

I know right haha everything he's highlighted she technically did. I'd be willing to bet the population on Linkedin thinks it's more offensive to put an individual on blast and share her cell # on social media than to write a prospecting email with an opt out button.

Literally what I was hoping for. Was so pumped that Sahil saw it.

Yeah it seems to be a thing that all these "sales gurus" do on LinkedIn. I don't think anyone likes it than other gurus who point and laugh at it too. It's gross.

This guy doing the shaming is an IT person (who knew they used Linkedin?) so not AS hypocritical, but you know somewhere out there is an SDR who is smiling and dialing to sell his vaporware.Β

Well...I can't see it. So either he changed the setting to have it only visible to his personal network, he started blocking specific people or he deleted it. My money is on the first option.Β

What obnoxious, nonsensical Linkedin headline do you use to covey the sophistication of your role in the workplace? Or What are the most ridiculous Linkedin headlines you've seen other people use?

Stole this from a LinkedIn post but it's actually good advice. For all of us going through interviews.
