    Pros

    Setting your own hours. Pay is good for the type of work.

    Cons

    Work varies and travel is harsh. The call orders are too generic and often don't match the work to be done in store. Expected to call both FOM and support with near every issue, people get tired of you calling them. The promise of moving up seems to have not been real. Management has no problem writing emails that refer to reps as "lazy". Training is almost non-existent, you must be a self starter to do this job.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more.

    Pros

    No pros since 2016. Management has changed the way they work with the field based employees and we have just become a low low number.

    Cons

    Management, mainly middle but also upper. Client managers have zero knowledge of what they are doing, the clients they represent and how to get the field proper instructions, directions and motivation.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    The training was really efficient and easy. Web based orientation, support materials and data submission. Other training available on their website as a bonus.

    Cons

    The store I was placed in was rather slow with business so it could be quite challenging at times to come up with sufficient customer interactions

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, depending on the program you get to work with interesting products.

    Cons

    Constantly worried about layoff and program endings. HR that doesn't care about the employee, cares about money and the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your employees. If your about to ruin their lives with a short notice layoff tell them as soon as you know, don't delay it.
