    Current Employee - Carpet Technician
    Current Employee - Carpet Technician

    I have been working at Chem-Dry full-time

    Pros

    - Gain a lot experience in carpet cleaning and process, also with sales and customer relations.
    - Potential to make average amount of $$ (25K - 30K)
    - Get to meet a variety of people from all different walks of life
    - Mainly independent (as an employee) once out of the shop
    - No gas or vehicle maintenance costs (covered by company)

    Cons

    - High expectations for one individual (Sales Pro, Carpet Knowledge Pro, Carpet Care Pro, Customer Service Pro)
    - Work solo (at least at the franchise I work for) having to repeatedly lift heavy equipment in and out of home as well as move furniture and belongings solo
    - Commission based, with much unpaid work such as Estimates, All Driving time, Re-services (not always your mistakes), loading and unloading
    - Unpaid driving can be anywhere from 1.5 - 5.5 hours a day
    - Very long days 10+ hours per day on average
    - Employer expects employee to pay out of pocket for all damages that may occur (accident or not)
    - No room for advancement, once on commission that is "as good as it gets"
    - No benefits or incentive to make a career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality attracts quality. To have long lasting employees that will want to stick around, you need to create a position that is worth staying around for.

    I have been working at Chem-Dry

    Pros

    its a good job to work while you are a student and done with class for the semester. Good for overtime.

    Cons

    its a job where lots of heavy lifting is required. this job may be difficult for smaller people or in my case women i worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be better to have an apparatus attached to each van which enables you to get equipment in and out of the truck with ease.
