    Pros

    Never run low on jobs. If you like to travel than this is considered to many a paid vacation.

    Cons

    Not any cons of the job or its description. Unless you would like to be home more than 2 days a week

    Advice to Management

    Maybe to be more cost efficient and schedule the team close to home when no project is currently scheduled. 5 nights + hotel+per diem+mileage reimbursement + travel time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule; interesting work handling different products; opportunity to meet associates in various stores;

    Cons

    Hourly rate on the low side; many store visits are relatively brief (around 1 hour) so unless you are in an area with many projects available, the travel time and gas etc may effectively eat up the compensation;

    Advice to Management

    project budgets should allow for two-hour minimums when visits are brief and infrequent, otherwise it may be a losing proposition

    Pros

    You make your own schedule for the most part. You're told a time frame that you need to be in the store and the stores you must go to but that's it. You determine when and where you go for the day.
    Decent pay.
    You're always given an opportunity to move up in the company. Even if you wanna make a move to do so!
    Awesome, caring management.
    Even the higher ups are down to earth and fun to be around!
    You are given a once a year meeting that gives you chance to mingle with everyone you work for. It's an awesome bonding experience.

    Cons

    Some territories have ALOT of driving.
    The cent per mile could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Take a harder look at what you're paying for gas milage. There's no way that wear and tear is included in the cent per mile.
    Gas is almost $3.00 in my area and I only receive .35 per mile.

    Pros

    Part-time work - usually late morning to early evenings. Able to take off personal time when needed. A variety of different products to promote.

    Cons

    Schedule changes often without any notice. No pay raises for part-time works or any type of health benefits offered. Corporate does not acknowledge groups that have outstanding sales. Equipment was out dated and broken and yet the Event Specialist was expected to use it.

    Advice to Management

    I was employed with this company from May 2014 to June 2015. I believe management could do a lot better in maintaining the equipment and make sure that OSAH regulations are followed. Turn over rate is beyond normal for even a part-time job. Raises should be mandatory for all levels of workers on a regular bases.
