    Pros

    NONE AT ALL EXCEPT THE 2 hr paid at home training. Learned how to lie to people to get sales

    Cons

    Fired by email. AND THE PRODUCT SUCKS NASTY AND LIARS . Says no sugar in it but believe me it is. Says its all natural thats a lie. It is both natural and artifical

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time by putting people on to demo then taking them off schedule. Full of crap. Glad that i didn;t depend on this job for my spare income

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, awesome product, good environment

    Cons

    Company HQ is a joke, pay and commission is terrible unless you live and work in a major city, none of the managers truly do their job or help, and scheduling is a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and do everyone else a favor.

    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.

    Hard to sell their product and lack of management within their company.

    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.

    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.

    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.
