I have been working at Good Will Publishers full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great program to market. Management supportive to representatives needs. Lots of customer loyalty in good programs. Badly implemented programs are challenging but not impossible to repair.
Once familiar with the program, and if you believe in the concept, a rep can make a nice living. As with any sales position, you need to work hardest in the first year to establish yourself. The company is a Christian company that practices good values. Compensation and balance will increase as territory is built

Cons

Some minor glitches in customer service and communication Must mail work instead of using an online system which becomes difficult to get in on time for pay at holidays or with lost mail. Pay plan is written on a single page and leaves out the nuances. Following a poor rep can result in difficulties but a quality rep can make things right for the customer. Travel is extensive

Advice to Management

Better written policies and procedures. Provide reps with territory history readily and with list of companies that have national presence/sponsorship. Otherwise, great job

    Pros

    Company is well established and presents programs and publications that are good for the community. Job includes a lot of freedom and lets you set your own hours and schedule. Management is courteous and established territories can bring good results with decent income.

    Cons

    Underdeveloped territories can make this position very frustrating. As a commission only position, you can have multiple weeks of no income. Add to that, you must "trade" services with motel to have your overnight expenses covered. Gas reimbursement is limited, and travel is thousands of miles monthly. Average rep lasts under six months in a poor territory.

    Advice to Management

    Spell out the facts in detail when hiring. Be specific, don't hold back information.
