Advice on job...

Now I've finished uni I'm looking for some work, and I saw an application on WorkThing yesterday which I applied for. The job description read...

"Title: Start Imediately

Central Nottingham, Fast expanding Marketing Company requires Hard Working, Motivated People to start training in all aspects of our promotional campaigns. Working with a leader in the direct marketing industry, can only lead to some of the best training and support!!
Successful applicants will be required to learn sales and marketing, client liaisons and team management.

Must be 18+. No experience necessary as
FULL TRAINING is given."

I applied last night and they phoned me today to arrange an interview. However I've just been on their website and it looks a lot like it will be knocking on peoples doors and generally trying to sell things to people who don't want to buy. The fact that the front page of their website is focused on potential employees and is not client orientated seems to indicate this further. Can someone check out their site and let me know what you think as if it's knocking on peoples doors it's not my cup of tea as I don't think I have the confidence to handle the abuse.

    I'd personally be wary of any company that advertised a job using capital latters and exclamations marks!!!!!!!!!
    The fact that they're trying to "sell" you the job imo means that it's not as perfect as they say. I did some part time call centre work recently in sales and found that when I initially called up about an interview they literally sold me on how great the company was etc. Only to find they have a huge turnover in staff.
    If you want a job for the meantime then give it a go, you can always jack it in if it's pants. imo you'd have to be a salesy type person to do this long term, and from what you've said you don't sound like you are.
