Selling to salespeople?

Currently interviewing with a sales-tech company I'm pretty excited about. The primary stakeholders in deals will be AE's, VP of Sales and Sales Ops. Maybe enablement as well. I've always thought selling to salespeople would be a lot more straightforward and less BS involved.


For those that have sold into similar roles/departments in the past (tech sales a plus), what did you like about it? Was it easier? What was difficult? Obviously there will be challenges with any role, but I'd love to have an idea before I decide to make the move. Feel free to ask any clarifying questions.

Usually its easier cause they get it, other times they are dicks and will push you through the gates of hell.

Iโ€™ve noticed they are more personable and transparent. I feel like this is because most Vpโ€™s/AEโ€™s have been in your shoes at one point and know the feeling of cold calling.

I'd be scared to sell to people in sales. I'd be worried they'd be judging my skills the whole time.
