Sales Representative (Former Employee), Reston, VA – August 21, 2013
Pros: lots of give aways
Cons: low pay
You will be told when you reach 150 customers you should be making 100K per year...In one year I reached 125 customer and was making around 45K. You spent most of your time competiting against your own products labed under a different name. I had no other choice but to take the job at the time and I threw myself into it doing the required demos each – more... day... the Money is not there unless you are in a very ndustrial area – less

Cons: paying my own fuel
I traveled everyday visiting customers and new leads. I had four territories which I visited each one per week. The most enjoyable part was visiting a customer that didn't want to buy and left with a sale.
Cons: starting a business with well known competitive brand names.
To market a range of health , safety and hygeine products to the care home , medical and hotel industry accross Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Other sales portfolois included products to the engineering sector . These all marketed to reduce customer costs and improve productivity . I worked on a self employed basis based upon commission . The most – more... difficult aspect of the job was the cold calling nature of sales contacts . Once proven , the products sold themselves .The most enjoyable part of the job - getting sales and customer positive reviews . – less
