Please share the actual amount paid. The actual number was never truly spoken. Believe it or not $800 or $900 a month does not cover the costs on a new vehicle at 35,000 miles a year. Payment, ins., taxes, maintenance and tires. I already have a brand new car and own a newer red pickup, the purchase of another new truck does not make sense. If the job does not work out, you now have a 500+ car payment + ins. And taxes. I felt if they want you to drive a specific year and color vehicle they should mention that in the phone screening interview. Have you seen the price of new trucks??!! I am being conservative when I say 30k (+2,100 sales tax). Remember, it cannot be older than five years. If you purchase a three or four-year-old truck you'll be replacing it very soon. The starting pay for this position was also $35,000 with no guarantees.

This is changing this year. They are providing new Ford’s to all outside reps.

You lose money on the truck allowance every month, before you pay any maintenance or repairs. I did it for almost 10 years!!!

You are given an extremely generous allowance for the truck plus paid mileage
