    Pros

    A lot of freedom, not constrained to an office. Company truck, laptop and iPhone. Bump elbows with a lot of people in the industry.

    Cons

    Branches may try to exploit you to make small deliveries, but other than that, no cons. They are just trying to make a deal happen, can't blame them for that.

    Advice to Management

    Let rep take truck home, instead of having to drive up to specific branch every day.
