Pros: great staff discounts.
Cons: very long hours - as all of my ordering, etc., is done at the end of the day, once i've finished seeing clients. there are several night calls which need to be done.
I go out to clients' homes to provide in-home design solutions for window and floor coverings. I never get to do the same thing twice, so lots of variety. My local management is great...couldn't ask for better. National management is fairly new and going through a learning curve.
My co-workers are ALL fabulous. There isn't one single one I'd change. – more... We are all very close and get together to "brain storm" on a regular basis.
Hardest part of the job is getting used to new systems that have recently been put in place (after 18 years of doing the same procedures) -- you know..."old dogs/new tricks"! We went from a system of less formality..."you do what it takes to get the job done and deal with the minutia later" to a more rigid "Procedure (A), (B), (C), Black & White" system.
I like the diversity of people I deal with on a day-to-day basis. I have met people from all over the world (I have many foreign embassy clients). – less
