    Young people will get eaten alive by door knocking. Find another job right out of college.

    Pros

    You can make good money if you bust your rear and door knock dawn till dusk.

    Cons

    Absolutely no leads.
    Watching other people in sales jobs make 10k a month out the gate with phone in leads or other leads.
    Door knocking sucks. Tons and tons of rejection. No other business model for building your business than door knocking house to house.
    Do not get a BOA from another office. They will just bring with them bad habits to your office and they are untrainable.
    If you are Young or Look Young. Find another job. Because you will waste your time door knocking for prospects. Since no one takes young 20 somethings serious. You will work double or triple as hard to build a business as another new older IR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is Management in this company? LOL. The regional leader, never saw him, nor did he really help me out except for a couple of hours. Granted he gave me a terrible failing office to take over.

    My mentor. Couldn't be bothered. He took me out one time for 20 mins. Wasted my time.
