    -Relocation necessary for promotion in retail organization, once promoted hours worked typically increases drastically -Dealing with rude managers in stores -Physical labor -At times, more of a glorified shelf stocker than a sales rep -Depending on territory, long drive times -Long hours to work in peak seasons -Certain displays for stores are sent to your house and takes up significant space -70% of the... "training" is done on your own in the field, must be comfortable being uncomfortable -sometimes the only option is to "work hard" not "work smart"

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training opportunities to new RSRs. Perhaps a more traditional training period at home office.
