    I have been working at Carico International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Carico began in 1967. It is the purpose of the Company to produce and market products which sustain health which is so important to us all.

    Cons

    Difficult to get into people's homes to educate about the benefits of Air and Water Purification systems as well as a mattress which eliminates electro magnetic fields. Silver threads throughout, this mattress produces an environment which stops bacteria and dust mites-hence, a deep rest! People will live a healthier life breathing fresh, drinking fresh water and sleeping deeply.

    Advice to Management

    This is an opportunity to market healthy products with a well structured organization behind the sales force. I would urge anyone interested in sales to look into becoming an associate! All sorts of possibilities to do well financially and reach new levels in personal confidence.

    I have been working at Carico International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly and biweekly pay depending on sales, control your own schedule, never work in a confined office again, all paid vacations, easy to learn, anyone can do it

    Cons

    You have to travel by your own means, find propective clients to make more than the set biweekly pay, if you want weekly pay you have to sell, phone inquiries, door to door sales depending on your style, if you dont make the minimum promotion slips you dont get biweekly pay

    Pros

    You have flexibility with your work schedule.

    Cons

    There is no hourly or salary income. It all depends on closing sales.

    Advice to Management

    A minimum hourly pay rate should exist, to help the sales consultant not go empty handed if no sales were made.
    If your sales out way your hourly rate then pay you accordingly.

    I worked at Carico International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sales training were very good.

    Cons

    No pay (only commissions), you have to compromise a lot of time in training (three days per week, three hours per day), generating potential clients and visiting clients, and you only get paid if you complete a sale.

    Advice to Management

    Pay at least for the sales visits time (at least the minimum salary)

    Pros

    I am able to make more than 6 figures, with the possibility of 7 figures, depending on the amount of effort that I put into it. This job provides security in an unsecure world. The diversity is excellent and everyone is treated the same. Very quick advancement to management if you put something into it. I love working with all the people.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated, so if you're someone who wants to punch a time card, this isn't the job for you. There is no one looking over your shoulder.

    Advice to Management

    There are so many brochures about products and services, spice up the brochures for prospective hires to be in line with the quality of the products and services.

    Pros

    - Good sales training
    - It's an entry level start if you really can't find anything else
    - Teaches you other work ethics and work principles

    Cons

    - Bad compensation
    - Direct sales at its worst
    - No leads, you have to sell to your family and friends
    - Expensive products that are not worth it

    Advice to Management

    It is what it is. Their business model thrives on a high turnover rate. Maybe you can sell to some of your family and friends before eventually stopping and then either quitting or getting fired. I would suggest lowering the pricing of the products, they seem okay but not at what they are currently priced at.
