    Pros

    A terrific company with a wonderful product that supplies great support and training as well. Not for the meek or timid though. However, if you're out going and high energy you can make some sweet money. I'm averaging about $25/hr.

    Cons

    None as yet for me, though I suppose an extra day or two a week might be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great hours, especially for college students. Great pay hourly and the commission adds up quick. They are very flexible with your schedule, they ask for you to give advance so they do not pay for your spot where the table sets up. They understand that people have things come up. There products are great and very easy to sell, they design it for a wide variety of people.

    Cons

    I really have no cons so far. I guess if I had to pick one, it is simply that you have to store a lot of stuff in your house. It is not really an issue, that is the only thing so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and you guys are great about contacting us.

    Pros

    The compensation structure provides great opportunities to be awarded for doing well in sales. The scheduling is very flexible and allows promoters to find substitutes under certain condittions.

    Cons

    Since the performance of a promoter depends on sales, some work days can be very slow, which in turn lead to low sales numbers. The inconsistency of the sales market is the biggest drawback in some stores.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is doing great as each manager is working hard and trying to maintain a good stream of communication between them and the promoters.

    Pros

    its commision sales so it can be pretty good money if you are willing to work at it. i know a few promoters in our area make good money but i think it depends on the location too

    Cons

    training is lacking and you have to learn as you go and you really don't know where you stand compared to others in the company. confrence calls once in a while are helpful but not enough.

    Pros

    EcoDrink is an excellent nutritional that is supported by a very professional company that pays on time and provides all the necessary marketing materials and ammunition to sell this product against its competition.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the job is located in Costco, a company with an arrogant management profile and complete disregard for the well-being of its vendors.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing any vendor can do to overcome Costco's entrenched policies except transfer their allegiance to Sam's Club.

  7. Fun, easy sales job for those who can sell

    Pros

    Part-tme job with base and comm. 2-3 days a week. Some days make $150-250 in commission. Great product and brand. There is constant support during the day. Help w sales, motivation, etc. Easy part time gig for those w gift of gab and can sell. They conduct conference calls to help with your sales, they pay for your time on the call.

    Cons

    You are on your feet all day long. Its sales, you do have a quota. Driving to other stores to work on your own dime. Sometime it does get lonely during slow store hours since you are working alone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Our area manager was awesome, great trainer.

    Pros

    Fast pay and delivery of supplies.

    Cons

    Lack of local and store support limits the ability to sell the product depending on where in the store your demo table is positioned. I was assigned a very obscure location with little foot traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate more visible placement of promotion tables.
