The are many things to deal with as a outside sales person. It requires a adjustment all the time because business owners are always busy. There is the fun part of the job is that always meeting with new people and learning from what people want from your product.
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – August 20, 2017
This was the easiest job I've ever had but the management was so bad I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. the pay wasn't bad, but again the management. Bunch of women managers( I am a woman) who cross boundaries daily, cheat on their husbands with other husbands, thank God not mine ;) They'll be closed soon anyway who reads phone books anymore?
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Walnut Creek, CA – March 21, 2017
You are your own boss. What you put in will determine outcome of your performance. Not everyone can make it, even if you put a lot of hours into it. You'd need a lot of motivation with determination to make it in this industry.
If you have a weak mind, you will not make it. It's the tough market when your product is old fashion publication against an army of digital marketing sources that your clients have access to bring in new customers of their own.

Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – July 7, 2016
For the most part your co-workers are great and you will learn a lot about sales. But it is a cut throat and there are lots of turnover. You can make great commission but have to be very thick skinned.
