Pros: working from home allowed me to put in the extra hours without being in an office.
Cons: working too many hours, (i would receive phone calls at 1 or 2 am at times), working every holiday, and basically missing out on time with my family.
Beginning at 6 M I went over the daily reports to establish any possible issues. I entered orders, solved problems (which ever they may be), and worked on new concepts with my clients during the day with face to face interaction. I prospected new accounts, prepared detailed product listings tailored to each of their individual needs. I introduced brokers – more... to customers that I thought would be a good fit for the locations specifications for additional help. At night I would update our data base on all of the particulars of the day, finishing around 9 PM.
Management put me on my own territory prior to training, so I basically had to teach learn on my own how to accomplish the necessary tasks to perform my job and keep the clients happy
The most difficult part was the amount of hours I worked including weekends and holidays. There were no days off unless I took vacation time, in which I would still be on call in case my back up had any issues.
I never really had a relationship with my co-workers as we rarely saw each other.
Helping my clients drop their food cost by introducing new items, bringing them products when they forget to order, and helping them succeed in their business was the most rewarding part of my job.
