Repo Man

Odds of Getting In

It's pretty easy to begin a career as a repo man. You don't need a degree or special schooling to become a repo man. You can get your foot in the door by seeking out a reputable company or repo agent, who can show you the proverbial ropes. Many successful repo agents get started by working with another agent or repossession company. It's also not a flooded career market, which means it should be relatively easy to find someone to hire you. But repo companies don’t want to hire people who will…fail (see the worst-case scenarios above). Makes 'em look bad to the banks. However, once you've established yourself and get the hang of the business, you can always branch out on your own.
