Development and progression is very dependent on your department. No Christmas bonus, no free food (maybe a sandwich once a year).

An early start calling on retail outlets selling chilled food products. You learn very quickly to know your route and the use of handheld technology. The management for the most part were helpful and would give you any assistance needed to surpass your given targets.
The other employees were all very helpful if you needed any help and it was like being part of a family. The hardest part of my job was the long days. The most enjoyable part of my job was closing a sale.
Pros
lunch allowance, good salary.
Cons
long hours.
