Legally a company does not have to pay mileage from home to first stop and last stop to home. That is considered normal commute miles, I believe it's usually 40 miles. The law assumes everybody has at least some commute time to work, you don't get paid mileage if you drive to a factory or office to work. They do pay if you are required to drive from one location to another during the day, however it is your responsibility to plan your stops efficiently. You usually have control over how your day is planned, and usually reps are hired in areas close to thier accounts. Some rural areas will have more mileage than city, and city territories will have more traffic delays, same as working any other type of job. Sometimes a supervisor will ask you to pickup a project in another area, mine usually points out that mileage is covered if you agree to help out. Unless you are in a very rural area you usually won't have much mileage.

It depends on what you like to do, your skills, and your financial situation. You cannot support a family, or even yourself, with this job. It is part time, and variable hours. Perfect for second income or retired. Work is mostly very easy and you can usually arrange schedule to suit your needs. Yes there are other companies that pay $12, but you will probably have to hit 4 - 6 stores a day and be expected to upsell the managers or even obtain display space for whatever you are representing. I know, because I've worked for several of them. These days most space tightly planned and few managers can or want to be bothered finding display space for you. Yes they will pay mileage, but they still do not pay for your drive from home to 1st stop, or your drive home. Work at the other companies can get pretty boring, week after week trying to upsell or get display space for one or another product. No thanks, not worth the $2 or the few cents for mileage. Driveline has pre sold projects, wide variety of projects and store managers who appreciate the service you give them.

I am guessing it depends on your skill level. I have experience and was hired in at $10.00 and I know someone else who has experience and was hired in at $10.00, as well. Another person I know, was hired in at $9.50 and he had no merchandising experience. However, I have heard from numerous employees that they pay you less for living in a major city, the idea being that in major cities they have a huge pool of workers to choose from and far out in the country workers are harder to find. Not sure if there is any truth to this. I would absolutely not work for them for less than $10, and that is only because the stores I service are all within 10 miles. If they wanted me to drive all over the place to get to my stores I would quit. Not worth the pay and most of the jobs are only 30 minutes-3 hours long.

Every two weeks. Pay always falls on a Friday, but I have always got mine on the day before, with direct deposit.

I started over 4 years ago at 9.00 per hour and went to 9.50 pretty quick. In 2015 I was raised to 9.78 an hour and even after asking have been left there with no raise since.
