    I worked at Good Will Publishers full-time

    Pros

    They set the Towns you work....the territory but they will decide what towns you work...many times not in your territory!

    Most of the towns are very small 2-3000 and are being worked by the companies other divisions.....a small town wont support 3 different book programs!

    If this territory has been worked before ....you will find that accounts are sold at very small contract amounts which you must re sell at 3 to 4 times the amount!!!

    Wont happen....The Heritage program is the only viable product and that still depends on area.

    Program , product, and company are very dated and not trust worthy!

    Don,t waste your time...they churn through reps and even if you take the Draw you wont be paid until week 3....and then only for week number 1! You will never see the money for weeks 1 and 2. THEY KNOW HOW TO WORK THEIR SYSTEM!!!!

    Christian in name only...don't waste your time...you will make more money at WalMart

    Cons

    Management, program, and competition which is the other divisions of GWP selling similar product to the exact same business owners.

    These towns are very small and there is an even smaller amount of business owners that are willing to support this type of program and VERY few that will pay the asking price....you will be forced to sell very low and make nothing!!!

    They churn through reps.....I found out there were 3 before me in just 3 months!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to be something you aren't.....they don't walk what they talk

    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.
