  1. Great training for life skills, requiring a lot of self motivation and unsupervised hard work.

    Pros

    100% commission, so it's possible to make a great deal of money. This job allows you to manage yourself and determine your own success. It's possible to earn enough during the summer to support yourself during the school year. Most sales reps get to take 8 months off every year.

    Cons

    Saturday is the longest day, usually about 12 hours. In order to do well, you really need to commit to working every single day (except Sundays) for about 4 months, without taking any vacation. Because it's 100% commission, it is possible to work hard all week and not earn anything, although that was a very rare thing in most offices.


  2. Alright company in most areas, a little sketchy on the sales process though

    Pros

    Good benefits, fun coworkers, free lunch, a nice rec room, and it pays pretty well. If you just need a job this one is pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of shady corporate practices while I worked there, shifting managers around too often to have real leadership. Sales process is legal but doesn't feel honest anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that people are more than cogs in your machine to make money.
