Another question would be your coverage area. Where you live and how much area you are willing to cover would determine your volume. Volume varies every week, everywhere. Obviously, if you live in a metro area your volume will be higher. Some people will start with us on a part time basis and enjoy the work so much, they go online and find other field service companies to do work for. Some of our reps work for several different companies and make this their career. Others go to their day job and do our accounts after work and on the weekend for additional income. There are due dates and instructions on the accounts, but for the most part you control your own schedule as long as you meet the account requirements and due dates.
When someone first begins, we always advise not to judge the job for at least thirty days. There is always a learning curve when you begin a new venture. After 30-60 days you have a good idea of the volume your coverage area produces. In all of our states the volumes varies from week to week.
As a field representative for DCFS you will be assigned an account manager who will provide you with support, and help you with all aspects of your assignments.
