Yes ,you drive your own. I had a rough time, driving hours to Kokomo and back at night with a vehicle that had its headlights smashed in so I could barely see. Ended up buying a car and getting in debt just so that I could have some reliable transportation. They should give company cars. And they dont count the miles driven from home to office as mileage they should pay you for. About .20 a mile

.23 cents a mile for milage reimbursement. If you itemize taxes you can claim the difference at the end of the year. They do not offer a company vehicle, however you may be lucky enough to get to use one every once in a while.

Mileage in very minimal. You start tracking mileage from the time you get to your first knock until your last knock. If you are a door knocker then you won't be driving very much if at all. You park, get out, walk and knock all day. They sell you the gas mileage during the interview process but it's really nothing.

They tell you they pay you for mileage but I haven't seen a dime. Keep asking about it and they keep giving me the runaround. Not worth your time unless you're truly desperate for a job. Even then you could probably find something better with the hours they make you work you're lucky to average $10/hour with no overtime pay working 6 days a week.

You drive company trucks, paid by the hour. Miles don't matter.
