ProsVery decentralized, so you get a fair amount of leeway in how you run your book of business, depending on who your manager and district manager is.

Cons10 hour days... if you keep your growth up you can make good money... If you hit a wall and stop growing or you have even a bad month your commission decreases GREATLY. You are also responsible for making sure your customers pay their bill. If they go over 90 days delinquent they take the commission back... and even if the customer eventually pays they don't give you the commission back. Also, the way you are scored and paid changes ALOT.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing the way branches function, as well as how commission is paid so much.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
