Pros

You are rewarded for success.

Cons

The older experienced representatives farm young talent to grow the business and then cut them loose when they have gotten every dollar out of you.

Advice to Management

Give new employees a stable work environment.

    Pros

    no ceiling. Chance to really make a difference in people's lives, not just make money. Community service. Great and supportive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    No ceiling but also no floor since it is all commission based. Not a well known company and its not for profit so at the beginning there is a lot of cold calling.

    Advice to Management

    Management is always there and can be relied upon. Management people also started right where everybody else did so they always know exactly what you are going through.

    Pros

    No Experience or Education is required to come on board. You go through 3 tiers of interviews, but as long as you don't have a felony, you will be offerred a job. They will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you pass the state exam (about a 1-2 week study-cram). Then you are given a rebate (refund of exam and licensing fee) when you pass. Your computer, business cards, and other incidental biz expenses are credited to you and taken out of your paycheck, gradually.

    Cons

    Must have abouth a 6-month business expense to live on. It will be at least a month before you will start receiving income. So you must pay for transportation and supplies. Leads are cold (luke-warm at best). Low name recognition of "Modern Woodment". Extensive 1-week District training in Rock Island, IL, is given after you have been on your own for about 6 months. The training was good, but very late.

    Advice to Management

    Give the District training immediately after the agent passes the state exam and BEFORE having the agent selling, unsupervised.
