Pros: benefits, commission, training
Cons: work-life balance, inconsistent work schedules
Overall, not a bad position. I do not enjoy cold calling, which is essentially what you are doing, but it paid the bills. Immediate management was great. Fun and empathetic crowd. Upper management creates problems with their constant hovering and micro-management. However, the lack of consistency in the work schedule creates a poor work life balance. The use of your own cell phone, extensive use of your vehicle, and immediate use of your own money for event costs (you do get paid back...eventually) creates some well-founded frustration. However, if you are young, and are looking for a starter job, this is a very good choice to learn and develop customer service/marketing skills from professional (although a little unpolished) employers.
