got some barwork,pay is pretty poor but can have as many hours as i want so i guess work hard and then reap the benefits come pay day!Hope you have a fun time. What I´d really like to know, is how you find the job hunting. We always seem to tell people on here that work is hard to come by and bar work tends to be unreliable and poorly paid. That seems to be the current opinion, so if you could tell us how you get on it would be really helpful!! If you find it easy I might get my butt down there and see what I can get!!
Good luck and enjoy
Yes, I´ve applied and had a couple. The first one I stayed for two weeks and the second was so disorganised I only stayed for the morning.Can I ask what is the script with all the tele sales jobs that you see advertised on the Costa del Sol. Why are there so many, are they a con and how come most of them don't require you to speak Spanish.

The "cons" are that they all appear to be commission only, so if you dont get a sale then you dont get paid and because they expect a high turn over of staff, they really dont bother to train or even familiarise you with whatever it is you´re selling. You´re literally given a phone and a sheet of paper with basic info on it, a list of phone numbers and left there to get on with it! As I say I stayed on at one for two weeks, I made 60€ in those two weeks and maybe I could have stuck it out and earned more, but I wasnt comfortable that what I was selling was genuine?????,I also felt there was no company back up or policies. And I was in a small office with four other people, no windows and no air con from 9am - 2pm then 4pm til 6pm !!!!!!!!. I also found that cos I didnt really know about what I was selling I was either having to ask my colleagues, who didnt really know either or lie!
Selling is a numbers game, the more calls you make the higher chance there is of selling, So you sit there dialling, number after number and plough through the list you´ve been given, mind numbing stuff!. Most of these you see advertised dont need Spanish cos they use a VOIP phone system and you´re phoning the UK, the people you speak to on the other end of the phone dont even know that you´re in sunny Spain!!!
I was involved in sales in the UK when I was younger so I kind of know the "drill" and I found the two I tried here very unprofessional.
