    Pros

    excellent place to develop your interpersonal communication/sales skills. I learned how to be aggressive and accumulated a great work ethic! Great pay if you are successful!

    Cons

    HIGHLY COMPETITIVE! It's dog eat dog in there! Because it's commissioned based, you need to watch out for your fellow employees from stealing your customers/clients! This job is not for everybody! If you are shy, you will have to learn how to overcome it!
