    It's coming up to winter, so the weather will be cold, wet and windy. You'll be walking outside, and many people won't be in or won't be interested. So it's going to be a miserable experience - would you be able to cope with that?

    You'll find a lot of people either aren't in or don't want to be disturbed. So you'll need to be the kind of person that can overcome objections - you'll need to be able to persuade people to answer your questions. And if you don't persuade people, you've been working all day for no pay.

    Thanks very much for the reply. I’m currently in an office job but it very tedious same thing day after day.

    They keep telling me how easy the job is I just don’t want to leave a stable job for one that is not as stable

    Have you did the job before what are your thoughts on it ?

    How much can you make on an average day?

    I haven't done this job before, so I don't know how much you can earn - but it won't be as much as they're saying. Most households will be out or don't want to be bothered. If someone came to your door right now would you want to do a survey?
