Tell me about the shittiest sales manager you ever had.

God, I've had so many.


Maybe the kicker is the manager who told me I had resting bitch face and reminded him of someone he fired in his last role.

So far have not experienced any shitty sales manager but I think the worst kinds are the ones who give unsolicited advice and got the role due to knowing someone with little to no background cold calling themselves

So true. Have definitely dealt with younger managers / 1st time managers who have little to no closing experience.ย

First manager I had, right out of college into first job, was never direct and always beat around the bush, didn't provide much guidance on how to build pipeline & how to grow a career. Kind of explains why he got moved out of the manager role my fourth month in.

Ugh I've had a manager like that before. People pleaser who couldn't give direct feedback.ย 
Would rather have someone hurt my feelings and tell me the truth than not give me any helpful feedback at all.ย
