Cold Calls for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Springfield, IL and surrounding areasJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Meeting interesting people every day.
Cons: Long days with lot of driving, Tiring and Stressful to be on commission only
The best part of this job was meeting someone new that was welcoming, open minded, and easy to talk to every here and there. The worst part of the job was the dozens of cranky buyers I would run into every day. Attempting to turn their opinion of a sales person was much harder than I originally anticipated. My typical day would consist of about 20 construction or similar type of companies. Meeting the qualified buyer at each of those calls would be another story. Sometimes it would be 15, other day I would only see 3 qualified buyers. I learned that you cannot take business personally, and that sometimes things just don't work out the way you plan. I am seeking a new opportunity with a company that can offer stability and a more concrete definition of hard work. Working alone in my car every day was also a downfall of this job.

Job preys on new grads and those from other countries
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Plainview, NYMay 18, 2014
Pros: health and dental benefits
Cons: poor management, bad hours
This job requires long hours with nights where you can't leave until 2 or 3 am, low compensation, management is abusive and unfair to employees. The company is cheap and doesn't provide the appropriate time, training and equipment to properly do your job, because of this the company lost it's accreditation last year. Hardly anyone stays longer than a year.

Established company.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 14, 2014
Pros: great products.
Cons: see above.
Management is ok, treat you fairly, but expense compensation is horrible. Be prepared to spend a great deal of your own money to build your "business".

The company is extremely cheap, and the competition within the organization is damaging to the overall success of some individuals.

Plan on spending a great amount of your personal free time organizing your data, and entering orders into their outdated system. If you don't have a life, you may not mind.
