    @DuckEBee: I don’t work in inside sales but my husband is in outside sales and so I do have some knowledge of inside sales.  With my husbands company, basically there is an inside sales person assigned to 1-3 outside sales people.  The inside sales reps are responsible for calling and setting up appointments for the oustide sales reps. Sometimes my husband is able to give his inside sales reps leads to call and schedule, other times my husband expects the inside sales person to find their own leads and do cold calling.  You have to be comfortable talking on the phone to people and doing some cold calling. You have to be aggressive to get people to agree to setting up a meeting. You’ll definitely have the oustide reps you work for hounding you if you aren’t setting up enough meetings.  

    I have no idea what the pay or commission structure (if any) would be.
