How can I tell a legitimate sales marketing company from a pyramid scheme?

I've never sold for commission. A friend of mine started recently, and seems to be making good money doing it. I'm tempted to apply for a job at the same company, but also hesitant — after all, don't lots of these companies turn out to be scams? I trust my friend's judgment, but I'd feel better if I had enough information to make my own judgment.
So how do I know if it's a pyramid scheme, or some other kind of scam? And if it is legit, how can I set my mind at ease about it?
