Lead Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NS – May 23, 2013
Bath Fitter is a GREAT company to work for. A typical day at work would be starting in the morning, checking messages to throughout the day, entering in new orders into the Bath Fitter Database, answering the phone (customer inquiries), giving support to Sales Consultants as well as Installers, scheduling installations, ordering Bath Fitter product – more... as well as office supplies. At the end of each day I would also do a daily bank deposit. Those are just a few of the many things I did working for Bath Fitter. It was a small staff of around 20 so we were all like a family. The hardest part of my job I would say was when I would need to call residential customers and find out when the company would get paid for work that was completed. I would do it but it was hard hearing people say they didn't have the money, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer would call and give a compliment, whether it was towards an office member, Sales Consultant, Installer or the company in general. It was great! – less
Customer sservice rep (Former Employee), Etters , pa – August 15, 2014
This is a complete waste of time , there are NO full time options , you start part time and then they fire you after you're done helping them get a few customers . They literally want you to meet your LPH(leads per hour) when you start! Training is only 2 days and then you're out on the floor making calls . It's a sucky job and annoying environment – more... . Don't waste your time ! – less
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – June 27, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and travleing
Cons: being away from my daughter for the weekend
I loved this job. Meeting new people is my thing. i would set up the tub/shower at shows and literally had to drag people in to check out how they could remodel their bathroom for hardly anything. I learned how to market, this was my first marketing gig. There really wasn't any management. I would walk into the office and have a list of all the shows – more... we would be at and I just had to show up. I had no co workers. I was the only one who worked as a vendor for Bath Fitter when I was working there. – less
Most of the time you are bored, waiting on someone to show interest in the product so you have something to do. They go to places that have nothing to do with Bathrooms..really, who at a car show is thinking of remodeling their bathroom.
Consultant (Former Employee), Laurel, MD – February 6, 2014
Pros: if they pay on time it is fair
Cons: 100% commissions not paid on time and they find ways to delay paying
You have the opportunity to learn their products and represent their product as the only option that makes sense to anyone which is contrary to common sense. They expect you to believe that their product and company are the best available bar none. And if you don't "believe" with cult like behavior of pledging 100% loyalty to be available at all hours – more... of day and night to them, then you are shown the door, or if you don't get the hint, they delay your projects from being installed and hence delay paying you or make it harder for you to earn a living. They also don't like anyone questioning their system or process of selling or communicating about them and refute disputes with customers for nonperformance with very petty tactics. – less
Install Technician (Former Employee), Morgantown, WV – November 15, 2013
Pros: you might make money
Cons: long hours for the first 9 months
I was promised I would be making around $20 an hour doing bathtub replacements. They also tell you that you will be in training for 5 weeks but the pay is $10 an hour while in training then you have to go to Harrisburg, PA for 2 weeks. I was stuck in training for 8 weeks because the install Manager forgot to schedule me for corporate training. The product – more... itself isn't bad but they expect you to slap there materials right over the old that is there. It doesn't matter if there is a moldy substrate or the shower base they gave you is the wrong size the job NEEDS to get done in 1 day. it makes the company look good and increases your pay. I averaged $12 an hour working 15 hour days and since there is so much work they made Saturday work mandatory ( without notice). If you don't get your Saturday job done you will be back on Sunday to finish it. – less
sales (Former Employee), Kent Ohio – November 9, 2013
Cons: pay, commission, hours, no benefits
I worked for them a few years ago in Kent Ohio. They promise you a lot and deliver nothing. Their product is junk. It is often more than to replace the entire bathroom. I got a lead for an entire hotel and the job sold but never saw a dime in commission. They lie about everything. The owners in Kent are cut throat. Stay far away
Run, don't just walk away from this (?)opportunity(?)!!!!!
Sales Rep (Former Employee), Kent OH – October 8, 2013
Pros: good training program at corp hq, great installation people
Cons: late hrs, bad leads, overpriced product
Expect lots of driving time and auto expenses. The best leads are given out to the manager's favorites. Many set appts. are no shows or have not been qualified properly. Went on many appts. where the cost of the product exceeded the value of the mobile home or ghetto property. Don' t expect to see your family M-F, as you won't be home until 11 PM. If – more... you don't close the sale that night, the manager will follow up and can cut the price...you get nothing. They are always hiring. How great of an opportunity can it be when the longest tenure of any sales rep is under 2 yrs? – less
Marketing (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FL – October 4, 2013
Pros: mileage reimbursement. $10.00 per hour. staff.
Cons: no insurance. part time. was not notified when they no longer had contracts.
Traveling to various events to show bath remodeling product. I learned great marketing skills. Management was a bit unstable. Co-Workers were fun and very helpfull. The hardest part of the job was the wear and tear on my vehicle but they do have mileage reimbursement. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people, the customer service part.
Bookkeeper (Former Employee), Castle Hayne, NC – August 13, 2013
I enjoyed my days at this workplace as it was always something new, constantly learning something different. New customers daily and never a dull moment. I enjoyed working with everyone from this company and hated to have to leave
