    Pros

    Be able to make a lot of money. Gives you customer service experience. Be able to meet new people everyday. Opportunity to move up.

    There really isn't any bad things about. I mean if you're lazy, this isn't the job for you. You gotta be able to take rejection. The better the salesmanship, the better you're going to be in this business.
