Should improve on how they pay their worker because people do not like to invest where they do not benefit, otherwise the conditions are not bad for anyone

In the first five weeks you do not get paid. You spend long days working, everyday. The field work is highly competitive and dishonest. But you learn alot about how to market pretty much anything.

It taught me a lot about people skills and how to apply a proven system to get in the heads of customers which works if you apply it well. It is quite a challenging job for introverts, but you can always learn and discover your own entrepreneurial skills.
Pros
The ability to ask for help from other sales agents in the office.
Cons
Long hours and the reality of your own weaknesses head on.

Pros
Advancement, Own boss, Travel

Long hours and lots of effort

Upshot provided an environment in which all employees interact and train together. We were taught more about how to communicate with potential customers and it was a life lesson. After field works we'd all meet at the office where we review our daily performances in relation to our daily goals.
Pros
learning
Cons
long working hours
