High demand with little/no compensation. Run the other way!!
Interior Designer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – 27 August 2019
Horrible company to work for as an Interior Designer. With customer prices being so low, it's the designer that takes the hit, leading to high turnover.
They claim that each project should take around 5 hours total to complete but that is crazy unrealistic, especially if you are trying to do a thoughtful, half-decent project. And this doesn't include speaking with the client and additional revisions or work they might ask for.
Deadline expectations are ridiculous, especially since they ask you to take on way too many clients at once, leading to generic poor designs just so you can keep from drowning in work.
Pay for completed projects is ridiculously low considering the hours put into it. Clients often don't buy from you and when they do, the commission is so low it's not worth the effort.
You are not paid for the training/ required sample projects and you won't receive your paycheck for months after starting. By the time you realize how horrible this gig is, they will have already sucked a few months out of your life and then they will move on to the next unknowing designer.
Work from home. People are quick to respond to questions on Slack. Not responsible for ordering.
Extremely Overworked, Horrible pay, No benefits, Unsteady paycheck, Only paid monthly, Need to provide own Photoshop
