    I worked at Superior Lamp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to earn good income with concentrated effort. Products are excellent and company stands behind them. All for commissions, but rates are favorable for salesman.

    Cons

    Impersonal management. Depends on how much you sell. No loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Easy to get started, but be sure you know what you are getting in to. 90% quite within two years.

    I worked at Superior Lamp full-time

    Pros

    The only positive I could find is that you set your own hours as an independent contractor.

    Cons

    You accept the job thinking that you will be the only salesman in your area but that is not true...they will recruit all around you. There is no protected terrritory. Training is a joke. Before they cut you loose, you are required to attend several days of online training run by a trainer that literally follows the script of several CDs they send you. Then you are expected to begin cold calling and promised in the field training which, likewise, is one day. You are on your own - you are classified as an independent contractor despite being micromanaged. You are expected to see 30 prospects per day and report the results daily. The hook to get prospects to see you and hopefully buy is to offer a free tactical LED flashlight which you have to pay for in the end. Superior promises extended warranties and brighter bulbs that no one seems to want. Their lighting product is overpriced to such an extent that a potential buyer can buy similar product at the big box stores like Lowe's and Home Depot for considerably less and still achieve a useful life approaching what is promised by Superior Lamp based on customer input. Superior will tell you that they are lying. So, then if you can't sell the expensive bulbs to a potential buyer, you are to offer other less expensive bulbs similar to what the big box stores sell and offer + shipping and handling costs. The negatives far exceed any positives and when you're on your own paying your own expenses, you need more positives.
