Recruit etiquette

I've decided to become a PC consultant.

I have a time set to talk with a director-level consultant about joining up. Without my knowledge, my wife has also set me up to talk with another consultant. Both are very successful. I'd like to talk to both and choose but am not sure if I'm going to create some friction down the line.

Advice?

Also, I'm glad I found this forum - from all I've been reading, seems like a great support group.

I would sit and talk with both of them cause frankly once you sign on the dotted line you are stuck with whomever you choose!! Feel them out and figure out which of them them you prefer to deal with. Then make your decision from there. Best of luck and welcome to the Pampered Chef Family.

It is very important that you are comfortable working with the person who you sign with, because you will be working with them a lot. Just be honest with both people and they should both understand. And if they don't, that might be a sign that you don't want to work with them...

I agree totally! You must feel that "connection" or you'll feel left in the dark. Where in CO are you?

The one thing I would add is to let them know that you are basically interviewing to see who you would like to sign with. Folks get pretty excited about an interview, and by letting them know that you are talking to other consultants, you're being honest and upfront.

You are way ahead of a lot of folks by knowing ahead of time about the importance of finding the right upline!

One thing I would ask is about upline support. While I love my Director (and she is now my "BFF"), had I known about issues with her upper levels before I signed, I would probably had picked a different line. We get very little support from her upline, and it's frustrating (she doesn't get much either, no matter how much she asks or how much is promised). So, ask them about their relationship with their upline and how much support they get. Ask who their NED's are, and if they are different, do some research about them.

I agree that you should go with your gut instinct - the one you think will give you the most support. ;)

Congrats on making the decision to start your new business!!!! :D

I agree--talk with them both, but let them know you're talking to someone else. It's imperative that you feel really comfortable with your director. Plus, frankly, I think their response to that information will tell you a lot.

I am in the Denver area.

This would be my first experience with an MLM-type business but I've seen what friends and family have done with other brands. Upline support always seemed important so I'm glad that I'm talking to both. I also wanted someone in my general part of town.

Phone conversations with both have been good but one of them sounds more "connected" than the other at this point.

You'll find this to be an easy and best paying job you've ever had. Treat like a biz, work it everyday and the results will match.

Also, know that much of your support will come via phone calls and emails, in addition to the online training and biz guide provided by the company. With today's technology, location is not as crucial as it might once have been. There are cluster meetings, once a month, for you to attend. Even if your recruiter is not in Denver, there's hospitality available where you still get the same benefit.

I have several team members who are not local, and they just skype in for my meetings. They've not suffered due to distance.

Good luck with your decision! :)

NED's are good, but so far up that it would not be the most impt factor. Most PC reps are generous in sharing knowledge and sites like this are also good tools for helping him. Remember, all NED's are all in that position because they all worked hard to get there. ;)

I think who they will be in most direct contact (recruiter, director and AD) are more important.
