    I have been working at GAF full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GAF offers very generous salary, commission, provides a company vehicle for field positions, and provides you with all the tools you need to succeed.

    Cons

    Not a con, but a field position is not recommended for someone who performs better under micromanagement. A self-starting mindset is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
