This is no time to be meek

Heating Oil News receives quite a bit of e-mail in the New York market pertaining to how to approach a new heating oil company, and what questions to ask.

Some questions may seem intimidating, and to some just too embarrassing to ask the new company within the telephone interview process.  Get over it-it's very important that you start by asking yourself a few questions before calling the company that you may potentially work with in the future.  Who is the customer?  Who is paying for the service? 

Remember one thing in the negotiation process, when dealing with a heating oil company or any other company you may be working with, the only stupid question is the question that's not asked.  If you're not happy with the response, you can just hang up and call other New York heating oil companies.  Think about it, if anyone should be nervous on this call it should be the heating oil provider, they have everything to gain obtaining a new paying customer.
