    Pros

    Great motivational speeches in the morning is all I can say

    Cons

    It's $10/hr VERSES commission. If there is only one wave in the morning and you're not chosen to sit with a family, that's it. By 10am you're done for the day and you go home. There's no way you'll ever see 40 hours a week like that. Many times there are far more reps than there are guests and so many reps have to go home. During slow season they start to trim so they go on a termination spree. I was one of like 20 people they let go IN JUST ONE DAY. If you're actually selling packages, you have to sell your butt off and sell large packages to earn anything over 30k.
