    Pros

    Fun job, great environment, supportive management TO A POINT!

    Cons

    Highly unrealistic sales goals for smaller areas

    Advice to Management

    Make goals difficult but obtainable with effort! 4+ years of a goal NEVER being met at local store other than a handful of times during sale period says something...

    Pros

    very hard working employees and middle managers, good training opportunities initially, good product that doesn't get enough credit

    Cons

    upper management tells you that you will make more than you can actually make. no matter how carefully you follow the suggested sales methods, you are not going to support your family on what you make. the customers can be very difficult and standing for 8 hours straight in one place for that little of compensation is not worth it, and in fact, a down right disappointment. If you approach management about this, they will tell you how it is you, not trying hard enough. This is not factual, they know it, which is why they go through so many reps and have a hard time keeping the ones they have. Very counter productive.

    Advice to Management

    Change the formula, because you know that customers want something without sucralose, please stop exaggerating how much money people can make selling this obscure product. Get the big box stores to allow the vendors to sit on a high stool on the floor. It is way too painful for anyone to stand there that length of time. the CEO is completely out of touch with the plight of the sales reps.

    I worked at SGN Nutrition part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the first couple days, but i was pretty boring the next couple days. The customers were nice i just wish they had more products for you to promote.

    Cons

    The job was pretty repetitive. I wish there were more products to promote. It was pretty boring and you have to sell to many boxes before you start to actually make your commission pay.
