      Selling Credit Cards at Gas Stations

      Nov 22, 2020 - Field Marketing Representative 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It depends on how comfortable you are doing it. When I was employed, the program was RBC Bank Credit Cards and AirMiles program. Your goal would be to sign up as many people as possible and your initial contact would be when the pull into the gas station to fill up for gas. Training was good and the employees seemed genuinly nice people.

      Cons

      Feels like a scam, similar to how Triangle rewards gets pushed onto you at Canadian Tire stores. You are signing up people to have more credit cards and you are doing it in a rushed manner, approaching them at unexpected timing and you have to be convincing and persistant.

      Pros

      Decent staff flexible hours around school comission based pay

      Cons

      The contracts they had me on were about pitching credit cards to everyone in a department store. If you have amy morals around selling services like that to retirees and the like, don't bother with this job.

      Pros

      Very flexible, and competitive wages if you're willing to work for it. I just did this job while studying and it was good for that period in my life.

      Cons

      So much disorganization. And you're selling credit cards, which isn't the best job, but whatever, it paid the bills.

      Pros

      Team environment, Travel, You learn to accept rejection very quickly. You get to speak with a lot of minorities, elderly folk, and immigrants.

      Cons

      You are scoping out financially illiterate people who walk into the store, you are then bombarding them with a BS pitch on why they should have a credit card.
