    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.

    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
    Yeah me too and I wouldn't want to be on a ****ty team either. Thanks Young Gotti.

    - 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.
    OP, don't listen to this guy, he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    Not sure if you're joking or not but it seems like solid advice to me.

    The Touey is chivalrous; English is subpar but language is poetry of Petrarch, no sonnets though.

    To be a good rep you think they should require a college level psychology course?

    Another thing about a good rep is: they not only know their products, they also know other products and can/will let customers know if a product the customer already has will work to run with one of theirs and not just say, "You need to buy ours instead!" Sometimes there is the inferiority issue but when that's not and it's just another company's product, be honest with the customer! A lot of it really all boils down to being honest -- that and being knowledgeable.

    Being a rep for a company you value isn't all about "what can I get for free", its the fact that they look at you as an asset for promoting their name and properly educating other members on a wide variety of topics...

    There should be a balance between reps and owners, Ive seen some reps not be acknowledged for their hard work in the past. If you work hard you should earn something.

    I do agree 100% it shouldnt be about "what can I get for free." If thats the case then its not going to be a good long term relationship.

    Being a rep can get you to a lot of cool places. It took me to a job up North, a city I loved being in, a wife that I love, a close friend that I stay in contact with, and brought me where I am today. I'm now far removed from the industry as a whole, but it was a great trek along the way. I had some great opportunities and wouldn't take it back.

    It really depends on who you're repping for. If you're just a shill "product champion" for a message board, it won't do you much good. Use it to network and build relationships.

    There are lots of rep gigs for other industries that are actually a great way to earn a living. Being a supp rep can boost your resume, allow you to advance a career, and deliver you some outstanding changes in life. You have to use it to your advantage in more ways than free supps.
