More Pros and Cons

  1. "A personal development experience."

    Pros

    A great experience for pushing you out of your comfort zone and developing a stronger and more resilient mentality.
    The mentorship approach and emphasis on personal growth is pretty nice.

    Cons

    This is a purely commissioned position, meaning that reps only get paid for the work they put in. Despite this fact, management insists on putting additional pressure on reps for tasks they are not compensated for (meetings, working a particular number of hours etc.)

    Less of a con and more-so a reality: This is a door to door, B2C sales role. You’re outside, in any weather, knocking on the doors of private homes, trying to sell them something. It is what it is.

    Advice to Management

    More autonomy and less micromanaging would make this a more appealing role.
