No weekend work required, but during Monday to Friday it is pretty full on as there are a number of customers within ones portfolio to manage. Time management is key in order to accomplish all the necessary tasks. In terms of limitations, the chemical sales industry is a niche industry, it is difficult to obtain employment outside of this industry once you have entered it (i.e, 10 years work experience in chemical sales does not translate to experience in sales within the advertising & media industry).
