I did that for 1 year when I gotta outta high school, I got Top New Dealer of the North East Region. Does this vacuum start with a k?
We had morning meetings from 10-11 to talk about sales, then we'd travel far out to nice towns to grab some deals and wouldn't stop knocking until 9pm. Most of the time, I didn't get home until 12am-1am. It's a different story if you go out on your own, but you're never going to make money the way you do when you knock on doors with a van crew (stop, drop, and knock). You can get 1 out of 2-3 doors if your entrance ratio is good (plus I'm so good looking
). You do 3 presentations (hour +) you're bound to get atleast 1 sale a day if you play your numbers. Even with that, it's still very unstable, you can become wealthy and successful at it but remember, you'll always be knocking on doors everyday, always be looking for that big buck, and always be out there in the field unless you get your own store, but you'll always be running that store, and always be running those crews. ALWAYS.
I don't reccommend it, no matter how enthralled you get, or good you get at it. Nothing is worth the time you spend out there, every situation possible that can happen at a door WILL happen. I'd give you details but I don't want this to be too long, but just ask.
This was a whilte ago, I work as a coordinator now, the best thing about it is I get to go home after work, have a life, and I'm not worried about relying on door-to-door commission to pay bills. You on the other hand, will get to go home after work just to sleep for your next day of work. If you're completely serious about being in the vacuum business for the rest of your life, go for it. There will be plenty of incentives for you to stay but just remember if something's great at the time it doesn't mean it's worth it in the long run and if this is the place I think it is, they'll do everything in their psychological power to make you feel other wise. The reason they stay, is because they make money, the reason they make money is because they're good at psychology. I gotta leave now muahaha!
