Pros: learning quite a lot from the experience, people were easy to get along with and a good management team as well as training staff.
Cons: long work hours; injured my leg on the job, won't be doing door to door sales again.
It's very hard to make money when you first start, and the hours can be extremely long, so you should know what you're signing up for.
Commissions only. This is hard when you're doing door to door sales for a lot of people but if you're good you can hit the early start bonuses for newcomers. Some people do have a lot of experience in the sales will have a much better time at this.
However, when you do get rolling, you kind of get the hang of things, and it gets a lot less nerve-wracking, and you can start on some income, but it's still not guaranteed since you'll have good days and bad days. A lot of the people who stayed on for a year or more can do very well, but that really does depend on the person.
Hours are long. You're rarely going to get to leave before dark, regardless of the season. Since it's a commission only. you don't have much to do other than to continuously work. There's good incentives at the start for you to work, but a lot of people fail at hitting the bonuses. They insist on a 6 day work week with sometimes long trips to places far away. There's not a lot of free-time afterwards
The training crew did a very good job providing the skills required for the job, and the management was pretty close to team. There were a lot of co-workers joining and leaving the team on a weekly basis so it was a bit hard. I can't say I got along with everyone but I learned a lot from the senior team.
Job culture is not incredibly unique, they do what a lot of good sales teams do to try and have people get along, but you work mostly by yourself. A lot of people there had – more... really bad music playing really loudly in the car though. – less
