    Pros

    Since I was a contractor and not an employee, I set my own work hours.

    Cons

    I was lied to by the recruiter, the trainer and the sales director. I was told one commission level by the recruiter, another by the trainer and yet another by the sales director.

    The lure of preset appointments is a smoke screen. During training the group was told that we would experience an 8-10% no show rate of merchants. My experience was more like 40%. The trainer and recruiter both stated that these were qualified leads that wanted to see you. BULL!

    Commission is mostly based upon leasing equipment when the competition is giving the merchants equipment away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the whole program and quit lying to the field agents.
