    Pros

    Great training to start with and good compensation to start with.

    Cons

    After a while it is 100% commission and you will spend a lot of time on the road going to every little hole in the wall. No real benefits to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding that agents will not hit the quota every week. Of course they want to but there are bad weeks.
