    Pros

    Great Products. As an independent rep you make you own hours. No caps on income, unlimited earning potential. A truly family company and atmosphere. They stand behind their products. Cons 100% commission-first couple years are extremely challenging Advice to Management Keep up the good work and the great support

    Cons

    Being a straight commission position, the first few years can be tough until you build a good book of business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Schaeffer Mfg. for more than a year

    Pros

    Schaeffer offers world class products and great support form home office.

    Cons

    Their pay, you are 100% commission which is a challenge these day for people to raise a family on. They have quite a few very successful sales reps but first couple years are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    To think about the way they do the pay. Maybe after a year of hitting the road and really working hard to be successful to consider some sort of salary.
