Pros: pay, people, management, growth, trips, trainings, cancun, events
Cons: none of this is given to you or is easy, this is not for the weak hearted or the lazy or the entitled.
A typical of day at work is well atypical. Thats the part I loved most about this job is that its NOT your 9-5 desk job where you clock in and out and do the same mundane tasks every day. Any day could consist of any one of or combination of the following: calls, marketing, advertising, sales, management, training, networking, leadership, painting, – more... hiring, interviewing, recruiting.
All of these things I was taught by professionals in each respective field. MOST IMPORTANTLY I learned EXACTLY what I wanted in a future career. I found that I wanted something I could work directly with people, work with my hands, work outside, minimal desk and secretary work, and DID NOT want a job with hourly pay, uniforms, clocking in and out, sitting at a desk, and i KNEW that I HAD to have a job that challenged me every day and allowed me to grow and develop as a person.
On top of these things you will also learn a higher level of time management, stress management, management styles, and dealing with a more demanding workload than college will prepare you for in terms of your actual future job.
The management of this company are so supportive of your growth. Literally its the life or death of the company- growth and development. This is one of the few companies built to consistently grow yearly and never become static. Not one level of management just does their "job" they are constantly training people to be better and to move up in terms of sales, commission, job title/position.
The people that you work with range from college students in the same position as you, people who have already been in your shoes and are teaching you, your painters you hire, the clients you gain, executives you meet, and guest speakers you learn from.
The hardest part of the job is keeping yourself motivated to keep performing. Everyone at every tier of the company must perform to keep their job. If you lose the motivation, you don't perform and therefore hate your job. Ex: If you hate door-to-door marketing and can't figure out a way to motivate yourself to do it, your business will go nowhere. If your too tired, sore, behind in school, lazy, (excuse, excuse, excuse) then you can't be successful here. This job demands high performing, highly motivated individuals.
The most enjoyable part of this job is that it is constantly changing and keeps you on your toes 24/7. Ive never had a day where I woke up as was like: "I'm not going into work today." or "I can't believe I have to work again and do the same things."
Your a business owner, you make your goals, your schedule, your level of success, your business track. Its 100% on you and I love that level of control on myself and the impact I chose to or not to make in my future. – less
