Pros: upward mobility, flexibility to make hrs, commission, training
Cons: commission, charge backs
The most important thing about working at Combined is being HIGHLY self-motivated and being an above avg saleperson, they teach you alot in sales school but its up to you to use it and taylor it to fit your personality. I left the company because I struggled getting consistent sales and this is a 100% commission job (live by the sword, die by the sword). – more... As with any job, there are pros and cons and in all, the pros at Combined were more numerous then the cons. However, this is a very tough job to do well in, if you are one of those people who can "figure it out" you will do well finicially, if not, get out sooner rather then later.
Unless you already know a TON of people (150+) that may buy from you or get referals from this it is hard to establish a customer base. Education and exprience do not help or hurt you in this job, it basically comes down to your ability to knock on a door of a stranger you've never met, go into their house, present them a product and walking away with money in hand; NBD. – less
