This is a perfect job for me because I do not need supervision and I am self directed. But don't expect a raise or advancement.
Pros: great for people who are self-directed and enjoy meeting people and promoting products.
Cons: we are not able to solicit work for ourselves and little opportunity for advancement.
My assignments are determined by corporate working with our sponsors: Nabisco, Kraft, Kellogg, Unilever, Nestle, Coca Cola, etc. Then how often we work is determined by the size of our store. I am fine with 4 days a week, but lately it has been 2, and that doesn't cut it. The company has several positions, all part time, but doesn't seem to enable people – more... to combine them for more hours. Not enough opportunity for cross training. The positions which are full time and higher paid involve lots of travel with territories poorly laid out. My supervisor has to drive 3 hours to meet with me! Fortunately, I am self-directed and responsible, and I know how to get what I need. I know how to adapt. – less
