Pros

Pros:
Learn a lot about health supplements.
I enjoy my co-workers.
Meet many link minded people.
Friendly customers.
Love helping people get products to help aid in their health.
Some freedom in getting customers what they need.

Cons

Cons:
Pay is very low. Especially considering all that is required of you.
Advancement not that easy.
Criticism is more often the norm rather than praise.

Advice to Management

Upper management (Regional and higher) don't seem to care about people.
My opinion matters little or not at all.
Again seems like their job is to be critical rather than help.
