Pros

- 39% of net profit (Event Coordinator level)
- 68% of net profit (Owner level)
- not an office job, somewhat fun
- travel within the GTA
- orientations with business vendors
- great learning experience, if you tough it out

Cons

- NO BASE (warning: should be well off, and want to do this as a hobbie)
- must have a vehicle, doesn't matter if borrow, purchased, or rented - you need a vehicle to get from A to B
- kms, gas, cell phone - get ready to rack up on YOUR credit card. ie. always on the road, opposite ends of the GTA and making cold-calls on your mobile (THEY DON'T REIMBURSE YOU)
- 7 am meetings (not paid for), ridiculous - if you've been there longer than 3 months
- like every sales role, territories will be worked up; you have to persevere.
- shady colleagues (non-stop cattiness, it's your business, so people will climb on top of you if they can. ex. steal a lead within your territory)
- more than 12 hour days if you want to survive with this job/at this company
- if successful, and become owner, your expenses could drag your earnings back down if the team you run, does not do well

Advice to Management

- TELL THE CANDIDATES WHAT THE ROLE, REALLY IS, because this wastes both parties time
- OFFER A BASE, even if it's minimum wage, AFTER probation period - considering EC has met requirements
- HAVE SET RULES - DON'T MAKE EXCEPTIONS and show obvious favourites

    Pros

    Sometimes can be a fun place to work.
    Fun job
    Meet lots of people
    Travel to different places
    Sell a product that is really worth the money

    Cons

    They do not understand that you have a life outside of the office.
    Want you at work at 7am for a meeting
    Expect you back at the office at 6pm for another meeting
    Expect you to do most of your work on your off time (evenings and weekends).
    Full of promises, but most are lies.
    Make you think you will get your own office and make hundreds of thousands of dollars in return for your slave labour in the two years it will take to get that office (if they ever really give you one).

    Advice to Management

    Understand that a job is not who you are, but is just a part of you.
    Don't make promises you will not keep.
    Treat employees with respect and don't talk bad about them behind their back.
    Remember that you have a good product, but without good people, you have nothing.
