Job work/Life balance: sales is a lot more stressful than I had imagined. I struggled quite a bit in the beginning but luckily my manager was always there to help me in the beginning. It is a 24/7 job, sometimes I have to take 5-10 minutes call at night or on weekends to resolve issues for my customers.
Compensation/benefits: Commission compensation - more ... is the best I found when I decided I wanted to get into freight sales. 30% commission. Benefits are great if it's only you, they are very expensive if you're enrolling your spouse/kids/family.
Job security/advancement: it is sales, it's all ... - less
