what do you think about working as a telemarketer?

I am an student of Electronic Engineering program, and I am at summer vacations right now, so I decided to look for a job, they offered me a job as a telemarketer consisting of selling insurances. I am 19 years old, and never done telemarketing before. They said they are gonna pay me 10.25 per hour ( minimum wage), and if I sell more than two in one hour, a bonus pay will be added. what do you think?

Well, first off most never sell one the whole day/evening, because a lot of people hang up. Second, outbound calls are have to consistently be on the phone. Blah. You should try inbound telemarketing that's not so bad and usually pays 10-12. ; )
