There have been some stories about the level of pay being quite low and there are some big expenses but providing you have a suitable car, license and insurance.

In the UK you can obtain a CBT for around £100 and be you'll able to ride a scooter/moped up to 125 ( depending on your age) You can obtain your CBT in one day and there's no test just an instructed observation. Buying a scooter can be relatively cheap and would also be a tax deductible. You earn more if you become a deliveroo courier if you have your own vehicle. I would says these companies are recruiting the quickest at the moment.

These companies love young blood, if you do go for interviews with companies like the ones above, you want to tell them you want to make a lot of money and willing to put the graft in to do so. If you make money they make money. This goes against any other interview for an organisation but in a sales, the company is a profit driven company and if you have the hunger to make money you'll be in turn making them money. If you can handle the environment and can give as give as good as you get, you can be making a lot of money at a young age.

You need to be thinking outside the box a little bit too. Imagine if you did really well at it, think what jobs you could go into, recruitment consultant,car dealer, mobile phone sales,estate agent. if you can make sales from walking up to someone door or just by ringing them up think what you could achieve if you had people coming to you to buy something, or looking for work for themselves. Recruitment consultants earn a commission for every person they put in to work by the employer. You can make a 6 figure income if you'r an excellent recruitment consultant. All these jobs love it you have a sales background.
