I was recently approached by a PFS rep at the store I work in. She told me that the few times she has been in that she was really impressed with my customer service skills.
She told me that she thought I could be a real asset for her company and, if I was interested in a career outside of sales, I should give her a call. Raising three children, I called her and agreed to meet with her to discuss the possibility of a job with better pay and better hours. At this meeting I spoke with an office manager while I waited for the rep. Both basically said the same things.
What I was most excited about was the concept of not supplementing my paycheck with a sales commission, something that BOTH of them ASSURED me I wouldn't be doing. I am supposed to go in tonight to meet with their Vice President. After seeing quite a few of these posts however, I am very afraid. The position I hold now isn't glamorous and the pay is mediocre.
But it is stable and I can count on it every week. I can't afford to leave my job now for something that, so far, seems too good to be true. I am not afraid of hard work and if that's all I need for this job, great! I have visited the BBB website as well as Primerica's site and haven't found anything that would lead me to believe that everything's not on the up and up.
Can anyone please tell me exactly what I would be getting into? I would appreciate very much any (fact based) insight someone might have for me.
