    I worked at Calico Corners full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous employee discount and beautiful textiles. The early training is very beneficial and thorough, especially for those who don't have a interior design background.

    Cons

    The company has not stayed current with technology. They demand that their design associates perform at a very minimum of 14 to 15 times your hourly wage. If you fail to meet the grossly exaggerated sales goals, you are written up and warned that you may be at risk of being terminated. At $12.00 an hour, it is abusive. The design associates job (many of which are design educated) requires an extreme attention to detail, extensive knowledge of window treatments along with hardware knowledge and an ability to work creatively. The company has no marketing or advertising program in place to bring in the type of "customer" that can afford Calico's "custom product and services".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All design associates should be In-Home Design Consultants. Pay your employees a decent life's wage. Understand your market (not every demographic is like Arlington, VA) and set realistic goals. Get on top of your technology (e.g., design software on iPads so customers can better visualize what is being designed for them). Get out of the re-upholstery business. You are retail (the middleman) and your prices are over-the-top. Stop taking advantage of customers by overselling and over quoting yardage "required" for a "project". Step up your advertising and marketing.
