I'm sure most of them are, but when I've politely asked one of them to not ring my number again and they still persist then they deserve everything that they get.

Except most telemarketers who work in sales also have efficiency to take into consideration, which can't be below a certain percent (my wifes was like 94%). Then, you average call time is taken into consideration. The longer it is, the more likely you are to be targeted for critiquing, being yelled at, or even separated. You basically want to make a sale (if possible) in as short as time as possible, preferably under 6m (again, time varies... the rival company here gives there employees 8m). It's a terrible job, but the real trick is to say "I want you to take me off the call list". Hanging up on telemarketers, yelling at them, etc, is the same as saying "I'm busy right now, call me back later" in their system. If you don't say those words, they can't take you out.
Also, for those who are confused, the Federal Do Not Call list only applies to Sales reps. A survey rep does not have to abide by the FDNC, so getting angry and saying "I'm on the FDNC, you can't call me" and hanging up only guarantees you a call later. Just be patient and ask the person to put you on their DNC; trust me, if you're a decent person to them, you'll get much farther, and have a much more helpful/kind rep. Just a few tips.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I used to work at a survey/marketing research call center, we weren't allow to bias the respondent in any way we could just try for them to be more specific in their answers, also, we were instructed that if the respondent showed him/herself very tired of getting called or doing the survey we were allow to tell them that we could take them off the list. If a respondent immediately said "Take me off your list" or "I don't want to be called again ever" we just took the out of our list, otherwise it is taken as an RNA (Respondent Not Available) and we were instructed to ask for the most convenient time to call them again, even if it was days or weeks after the initial call.

I have a few questions:
If someone always hangs up rightaway when he gets called, for how long will companies keep calling?
Are companies allowed to call people's cellphones and is there a do-no-call-registry for cellphones?
Do employees at callcenters often get mental problems/anger issues after working there?

1. You'll be called as long as you don't specifically ask to be taken out of the calling list.
2. In the company I used to work for (I don't know how it works with other companies) there were some projects in which we only called house numbers,now bear in mind, that the employees don't actually dial the phone number, there is a system in which a central computer takes the area code of a city and then randomly generates the phone number. Now the company I worked for had projects/campaigns that were house numbers only, but there were a couple of projects that involved cell phone numbers too (I personally didn't liked those because I knew there would be some pretty angry respondents, specially in the surveys that were about life insurance).
3. I myself was getting really depressed after a while of being working there, I was having suicidal and self-harming thoughts, I was getting disconnected from all of my friends, I started smoking much more than what I used to, I was very angry at all times, and to make things worse, I had just broke up with my then gf at that time (who I have to add, is still a very special person to me). So yeah, I was pretty much fucked up mentally. I also had to work on weekends, on saturdays it was from 7am to 4pm, sundays 8am to 5pm, not to mention, there were times in which we were offered to work double (7am-6pm saturdays, 8am-7pm sundays) and even triple (7am-9pm saturdays, 8am-9pm sundays) hours, and I took those just to earn some extra cash, I also have to mention that my hours from Mon-Fri (my free day was on Thursday tho) were from 2pm-9pm, and if it was a reaaaally long survey (30min-1hr long) I was unlucky as to stay until almost 10pm. Man I'm glad I don't work there anymore, I would have harmed myself real bad if I was still an employee there.

That sounds seriously horrible....I'm glad you don't work there anymore.
A friend who turned out to be an asshole thought it was funny to use my mobile phone number 2 years ago in random surveys on the internet, and I got called over 10 times a day, and just always hung up as soon as I knew I was being called. But since all the numbers were private I couldn't block them, and here in The Netherlands the registry for people who don't wanna be called is only for house phones, not mobile numbers, and I ended up changing some settings in my phone so every call would get forwarded to a number that didn't exist, and I also had to turn off my phone whenever I was in a public place because I got called at such annoying times...
Since about a month I can finally leave my phone on without fearing another random call, after almost 2 years of annoying the shit out of me.

But what if the person you're (now) calling every hour, gets called multiple times per day by different companies? You're no better than that person when you call just to annoy.
It's people who do this that makes me angry whenever companies call me after I've been working all day and already got a call or two from other companies.
