Fun place to work at.
Pros: trips, hotels, fun
Cons: long hours of walking (8-10 hours), bad weather
A typical day at work was fun. You get to meet a lot of people door to door on a daily basis. You experience people who welcome you, and people who refuse you.
I learned that sales can be a harsh environment and if you cannot handle rejections or criticism, then sales is not the job for you. However, I excelled at my job due to my friendly and approachable nature, and good vocal manners.
The co-workers were fun and encouraging. Despite it being commission basis, they never really made it seem like a competition, but rather like a team effort.
The hardest part of the job were the weather, since it was door to door, and also convincing people to be let in to have a look at their hot water tanks in their furnace room.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the travelling to places I have never been to.
