My rules for hiring a good rep. They won't apply to other companies but here is what I look for:
- If they have asked to join loads of companies already, we don't want them.
- We pick someone who clearly loves the products first and is clearly outspoken about them.
- If they apply to join our company but I have never seen them talk about our products, we don't want them.
In my opinion a good rep should be specific to the company and not just be looking for a rep gig with whoever offers. Too many people want free supplements and don't care who they rep for. These people aren't for us. Forum reps should be helpful, knowledgeable and polite.

^ what he say plus. I will tell you what make you a good rep. from the point of view from the owner that will want to sell product to as many people the can is about people having sheer knowledge (coop) and those who writing is interesting not dumb/run of the mill to read (bdcc) people will like to reading both.
But most importance too wanting to help/have fun with everyone the key. From an overview honest most rep. do not have a heart in it I think.

A good online rep actually reads the thread before making product suggestions. This forum is currently being over run by reps who are just copying and pasting the same thing into every thread. Even worse is that it is in the nutrition and training subsections. Those forums should be reserved for nutrition and training ONLY. The AM app has signatures removed as so people can't tell if you represent someone or not, or people new to the forum world probably are not aware that reps exist and just want an unbiased opinion.
-Read the OP before making suggestions; take into account personal stats and their likes and dislikes
-Genuinely like the company and the products they produce and take the time to familiarize yourself with their entire product line and how to dose them appropriately
-Represent the company both on and off the forum. I know SNS and PES reps do this very well. I give away little baggies of SNS products (like pre-mixed pre workouts or 'pre mixed fat burners') all the time. I know i'm not alone in doing this.
-Recognise that other companies do make products in the same category as your company and be willing and open enough to recommend both as options. Repping isn't just about making a sale, its about spreading awareness of the companies product line so that in future that person can experiment with your product as well

Hayden's post says a lot of things I missed.
He also demonstrated what a good rep is, helpful, polite and thorough.

i just genuinely like helping people, i did that for free before, sharing my experiences in real life applications
besides what has already been said:
i have to see the reps on the team are also stand up ppl that make good posts and aren't arrogant a holes....i wouldn't rep for certain companies just because the members of the rep team are terrible, even if their products are great...kind of turns me away from even the products
but is it a good gig: depending on what your looking to get out of it, if you want more exposure to help ppl in a genuine fashion then it's great...the free products are a bonus at that point

haha , most reps just get some free product as pay every month. its RARE you are going to find somthing considered part time let alone full time. its possible . but most places get reps for product and or commission each month. so no not on its own , NO way . but as a side job sure its great.

[QUOTE=jimbuick;4221934]OP, don't listen to this guy, he doesn't know what he's talking about.

P.S. How long before AB affects your appetite? Few weeks or days?
Not sure if you're joking or not but it seems like solid advice to me.
And what's AB?

I have loved MAN Sports for a while before being offered a rep position. I am a believer in our product lineup and now I get to show more people what I initially loved about MAN.
BTW, if The Touey ever wanted to run a log on Gameday, I'm sure I could get him set up. More energy then he is the having for running Touey Wine Corporation over say Bartles & James or The Franzia.
