Pros: dynamic environment that is always changing with new products and designs
Cons: fluctuations in pay and schedule
A typical day at work is usually one appointment per day, 12 to 15 per month. I learned how to design, and sell custom storage solutions, as well as manage accounts after installation.
Management was excellent, in the sense that they did whatever they could to help you close the sale, as well as ensure 100% client satisfaction with a quality product.
Co-workers – more... were open to helping however they could, whenever asked, and everyone met at sales meetings once per month, at company headquarters to discuss the previous month.
The hardest part of the job was competing with other companies, as there are many of them in the area. Closets by Design is the best quality, so it is not always the least expensive quote a customer will receive. Customers will also try to compare quotes on a design with another company that is less expensive, not understanding that a more complex design, will cost them more money.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the designs after they are installed, and the excitement from the client. – less
