    Good pay with benefits

    RSR Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsGreat pay with great benefits. There is plenty of room for growth if you push yourself hard enough. There is opportunity to make a large sum of money because of the commissioned pay scale.

    ConsThe hours are long and not ideal if you have a family. You are basically married to your designated routes with no hope for a personal life if you have a wife and children.

    ProsGreat brands, great/smart talented employee base, strategically focused, proven winner with a drive for results.

    ConsSometimes bites off more than it can chew. Never a dull moment. Need time to recharge the battery at times. But the good news is that I feel i do have the flexibility to do so.
