It's a firm of brokers that sells fixed income bonds and equities over the phone. Basically a bunch of licensed brokers who call people up randomly and fast-talk them into buying bonds or stocks. To put it bluntly, cold-calling.They hired me to train me for my Series 7- (licesne to sell stocks). After about three weeks, they concluded that I was too introverted and didn't talk fast enough over the phone to become a stockbroker. Tough job, lots of hazing.
I think it was better that you left that place of employment. From your description it sounded like a boilerroom type operation.
