    Pros

    Worked independently. Make your own route Flexible hours, team members are like family. Boss work with you 2 or more times per month. 2 weeks paid vacation and 3 Heritage holiday of your choosing.

    Cons

    No more than 20 hours per week To many calls in to large of a territory Work day time should start when you leave house Meeting are long distances and no overnights. Pay and raises not what you deserve No recognition for hard work New boss every 2 years Mileage stays the same No insurance or benefits No sick days Mainly a sales job not a merchandising job. Does not give you the numbers to be a good sales person only numbers they want though to know.
