If you are considering an Independent Route be very careful, a lot of demands from the company, never ending pressure to purchase more product than you need, a payroll system that is so complicated you need to be a certified accountant to understand how it works. I do understand some routes do okay in densely populated areas, but if your route requires several hundred km per week in more rural areas your chances of success are very slim. As well Voortman has a guaranteed sale policy which means you buy back any stale dated products, in essence you buy the same product twice and lose your commission, THIS CAN KILL YOUR BUSINESS. Voortman boasts a 1% return rate this is nowhere near the actual amount of stales most distributors encounter, I have yet to speak with one who has achieved a 1 % return rate. The job can require a lot of hours on the road and nights away from home, you do get to meet a lot of great people and see a lot of country and you are your own boss. I would not recommend this company especially if the route involves a lot of driving, and when the time comes you wish to exit be very prepared, it is not likely to go as you would hope. They have you on a contract and will screw you as hard as they can, always remember Voortman is selling cookies to the distributor, not the public and don"t care what issues you run into they always collect. As some previous reviewers have said run far, run fast.
poor money for the amount of time and effort
