Hard job, great pay
Field Sales Rep/ Trainer (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNSeptember 23, 2015
Best job for commission pay I've had. Management is hit or miss, depending on what territory you land in. Hard work and many sales people can't do it, but if it's a good fit for you (and it was for me), and you have a decent territory, you can make a good 6 figure income.
Pros
Autonomy and the money. The sales team is fabulous, but you rarely see any of them, since you have a large territory to work everyday.
Cons
Very high turnover, due to near 100% cold calling. You can request referrals and that helps, but you're still walking in pretty cold.

Road Warrior
Field Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Eastman, GASeptember 7, 2015
Good place to work if you like to drive 40k-50k miles per year. You must be a motivated, self starter and strong closer to get the job done properly. Great pay for those who can do the job.

They say you can make tons of money. reality is a little different. Great flexibility. But it is door to door sales B2B. great cause, but the pay doesn't stack up, even for the top 10%
Pros
flexibility
Cons
pay is similar to low level sales jobs

Not for me.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Northern NevadaFebruary 13, 2014
If you like cold calling 100% of the time (no leads) then this is the job for you. If you like paying 100% of your own expenses while traveling overnight, then apply.

Excellant place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Salem, OROctober 29, 2013
Very interesting place to work. Every day was different. Had to learn what NFIB mission and goals were. Had to work independent do to the fact that there were only the Director and myself, which we were both new.

I very rarely saw any of the Sale Associates only communicating by telephone.

The hardest part was learning out the NFIB operated.

I work for a Manager that was terrific, an excellent trainer and very dedicated.
Pros
parking provided and the pay.
Cons
none that i can think of.

Company tries to make people happy
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNMarch 22, 2013
And that's a nice change. Management is effective and coworkers generally get together after hours - because they like each other.

Commission Only-Lots of Freedom
Membership Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Outside Philadelphia areaAugust 29, 2012
A membership representative position is a sink or swim position. After initial training (which is 4 days with a trainer in the field) you are pretty much on your own. As long as you're producing things are great. You can make great money and you're pretty much left alone. If you struggle and need help though you are forgotten about.
Pros
freedom, good commission
Cons
100% cold calling, 100% commission, no car allowance etc., not much support
