Great workplace and atmosphere, professional and fair

This is a company which does very high quality good work. I would highly recommend this workplace for many individuals. This is not for people who do low quality work, but mainly for people who want to do the right job, take their time doing good installations, and have an eye for quality things done right. Very professional. I have yet to ever see a company do good work like this.

Great set of people to work with.

The company and its people treat you like family. When you do start working there, your supervisors will make sure you understand the job and make you feel welcomed. It's very easy to fit in, especially when everyone greets you with smiles. If you do apply for sales. Make sure that you are willing to learn and put in the work. This is definitely the best window company out there. 100% would recommend.

Pros

Great staff. Good pay. Flexible hours.

Cons

Literally None.

Ask questions and get it in writing

Was disappointed overall. Asked for help but never received it. Company sends senior sales reps to “your” customers that you just visited behind your back and offers the customer a better deal to close the customer. You receive NO compensation for your efforts. Their territory is all over southern Ontario despite their advertising. No compensation for driving time/fuel/food/etc. Was in Barrie one day, Fort Erie the next. Then to Pickering/Oshawa to Cambridge...it’s nuts. You receive the worst leads possible and need to drive all over to try and sell 1 window then convince the home owners ALL their windows need replacement.

Pros

None

Cons

Too much driving, should have satellite branches

Great company to begin your career in sales

The company and the management offers everything - training, script, and other tools for you to keep your head up out there. Neverending little something to motivate people with very detailed and diligent management.

Pros

Bonuses, short hours, great pay and great product

Cons

This is, in the end, about sales so be ready to get rejected

This company is Great in the beginning but you wont stay there more than 3mths unless managers like you. Ivery very high turn over

Dont bother with this company if you want to stay long! The turn over rate average is 3mths! Company managers will set you up for failure if they dont like you. A lot of pressure to close deals on the first visit. You spend 3-4hrs at a customers home to try and sell them windows and doors worth 35tho. If they dont buy you cant give them any discounts

Pros

Great money

Cons

They chose and pick! Very high pressure sales!

Hard work - but it pays off!!

I work as a Design Consultant here and I have to say - it is one of the most challenging jobs I've ever done BUT I am earning more that I ever have. I have flexibility with my hours and it's FUN! Everyday is different and it is very rewarding work.

Pros

Not sitting in an office

Cons

Driving a lot

Productive and improving culture

Was please to learn that company was aggressively addressing its growing pains and had made significant improvement in process, accountability and culture over the last 7 months.

Good $$ if you are good at sales but not worth it long term

High pressure sales tactics used by company. There is minimal life balance and will work you until you get sick. Management has an ego problem and feel they are always right. Yankees running the show, stay with a Canadian company.

Worst experience of my life run away from this company

I have never worked in such a disrespectful place, starting from how they treat their costumers to how the staff treats each other. They won't even train you properly and then they will ask you to do literally anything including things not related with your job. The culture is to lie to the costumers and shame their employees. They will ask you to lie to costumers as well as leave them hanging just to cover their backs. Awful company run away and don't let them trick you into telling you the company is growing and that they have the best culture.

Great training, great leaders and amazing customer focus

Working at Renewal by Andersen is challenging and rewarding. Leaders care about the success of their people and are ALWAYS available, even in the p.m. appointments when you are challenged with a measure, product or sales question

Run don’t walk RUN!

Totally sales driven company. Unless your a scumbag don’t work here it will completely ruin you. Poor Management, poor training. And yet they will expect everything from you. You will not be happy working here unless your a total scum bag. They talk big talk but can’t walk the walk. They will take good people and try to turn them into thieves and scum bags.

Pros

None

Cons

Everything and everyone working there

Run!! Deceitful Company with more morals or conscience

They have no conscience and only care of fattening their wallet. They have no issues taking food off MR. & Mrs. Customer's table in order to sell the window which they cannot afford. Trainer - very disrespectful, very crude, rude to the point of harassment. He is very proud of his behaviour. Sent out without teaching all products and without all the material or equipment to sell properly. When customer resists they encourage you to be rude. In their words:" They called you in so you are there to punish them." Mangement doesnt care how you get the sale just get the sale and you are berated if you do not sell. Their leads are not qualified leads and you are wasting your time and money to go to dead-end leads. Clients are lied to by call centre that the consult is 60-90 minutes but management wants you in there for 3.5-4 hours. This places a bad taste in the customer's mind. Workplace Culture - Boy's club. Same as being as Univerity residence -it's all about the raw-raw. There is no life balance - you are constantly getting disturbed by the pinging of your phone with nonsense. There is a reason that Mississauga office is not growing as very few Reps stay due to the disrespect, bad leads, no life balance, poor training and no support. All leads are filtered. If they do not like you you will get all teh bad leads. All great leads are given to who they like.

Worst employment experience of my life.

The most disrespectful and unprofessional experience I have ever had. They did not make good on their promises and I could not believe how they talked to their staff. Expect everyone on this "team" to be playing for themselves, starting with the owners. Do not expect them to follow labour laws either. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Disrespectful, Unprofessional, Slimy

Great Company, Great Part-Time Job

It is a great part time job. I get to attend different events in the weekends and make great part-time money. This job can be very rewarding if you becomes good at what you doing. The company culture is very good. Everyone in the team is friendly encourage. Management cares a lot about your growth, and really want you to succeed in the field

Pros

Flexible hours and good pay if you become good.

Great Part time job

This is a great company to work for. You get to attend so many events, meet a lot of people, and have so much fun along with making money. You could make a lot of money working a few hours a week.

Pros

Culture, people you work with, and Money

Cons

Rejection from customers
