poor treatment, horrible bosses
shop minion (Former Employee), BarrieJanuary 4, 2014
Pros: nice staff doing installation and shop
Cons: no job security, bad management, bad treatment, uncomfortable environment, low wages, no benefits, long hours, degredation.
What did I learn here? That if you are under middle age (50 ish) you are below par and not deserving of any respect. This place is a revolving door with no security, no benefits, very low wages with very high expectations. You get treated like a moron or at best a child and reprimanded when anything goes wrong or even when it doesn't! The management – more... is a joke. Only one person of the 3 ( yes this place is a lot smaller then they lead their clients to believe) has any sense of decency and unfortunately he isn't the one in control. Real talent is overlooked here and any sort of extra effort or drive to succeed is frowned upon. Blame is placed on everybody who works here so that the "management" can have a clear conscience regarding their issues. The only time you will ever get a raise is if you try to quit.. and considering they cannot keep any employees certain people do get raises under dire circumstances. Flat out this place is degrading. It is full of lies and disrespect. The " GM" allows for abuse and mistreatment and is a person who dishes it out regularly herself but is too entitled to see how she effects people with her quips. This place is going downhill. The young people that management loathes and disrespects and makes feel inferior.. are the only reason this place is afloat. When they are all gone... so will be closet's By Design. If you want to keep any sense of self respect or dignity do not work here. You will get paid nothing, blamed for everything and made to feel like you aren't capable of the most simple tasks. On top of all that you wont make enough to feed your family. BUT if you join a temp agency and get hired here you will! Its only permanent staff that are cheated out of everything. – less

harsh working conditions with no room to grow
Lead Installer (Current Employee), Barrie, ONMarch 14, 2013
Pros: really nice employees
Cons: long hours, lots of designer/administration mistakes
A typical day at work is loading the van, driving (usually an hour or more) to site, collecting payment first (which angers most customers), then start installing the unit(s). Run into designer miscalculations and design flaws, stop, assess, fix and continue with install. This company has nothing to offer as far as learning and has zero room for advancement. – more... The most enjoyable part of the day is leaving to go home. – less

Pros: flew to other states to evaluate location for new factory
Cons: flew coach, many connections, use taxi's or limo rather than rent a car
Very small company. Some fine people. Became ill and had a long recovery time. The hardest part was that they would not let me return on a reduced schedule.

Fun, exciting place to work
Designer (Former Employee), Shirley, MAFebruary 5, 2013
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

out of business due to lack of experience by franchisee. however good potential for someone who has some basic knowledge of industry. Not a very recession proof business, when times get tough business goes away
