Great company to work for.
Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) –  Marysville, OHJanuary 5, 2016
The company treats employees better than anywhere I have ever worked. Busy season is just that, no question about it, but they make up for it during slower times. Culture is laid back and everyone is awesome about working in a team environment to get the job at hand completed properly.

Got a lot of leg work in walking door to door for lawn service. I loved the face to face interaction with the potential customers.

door to door sales
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Fishers, INFebruary 7, 2015
This type of work - door to door sales - is not for the faint of heart. It takes thick skin to endure rejection time after time while seeking to bring in new customers. This position requires long hours and the only real way to justify the hours put in is to make sales. At least this job does provide a weekly salary and is not a commission only structure. This can be a very high pressure job since, if you do not make the minimum number of sales per week your job is in jeopardy, this in itself can add to the stress of daily rejection and long hours - again it's not for everyone. Some people love it, some don't.
Pros
good income potential
Cons
rejection, door to door sales, high pressure

Door to door sales (former employee)
Sales (Former Employee) –  Hummelstown, PaApril 28, 2014
It's an alright job if you want to be out all day working in the summer. You work well over 50 plus hours a week and you need a sell a minimum of 3 a day. It can be very stressful when the customer doesn't even want to talk to you. They first tell you, you get paid "every week" $500 dollars plus the commission but it's every two weeks and your most likely going to get 400 plus the commission.
Pros
An hour lunch, work phone, time by yourself
Cons
Long days, pay, manager

good benefits..... bad work life balance!!!!!!
sales rep (Current Employee) –  atlantaAugust 30, 2013
6 days (50+ hrs) a week with promises to get off next Saturday if we hit the goal which is unreachable.top producers are lied to and worked until they don't care. use this job for getting experience in sales and to build a resume for something better. if you have a family really think twice about taking this job. they will also short you of overtime(Chinese overtime) hours if you're not paying attention and keeping track.
Pros
benefits (if you can get them), resume building
Cons
extremely long days and weeks with no tolerance for time off. micromanaging non caring bosses.
