    Pros

    The training is top notch (just follow their system closely and you WILL make a lot of money, it's been proven many times over). The people who decide to follow the system and stick around are great and a big part of the reason I stayed as long as I did. Bonus and commission structure allows you to make A LOT of money with no previous experience. Company gives you a draw to help you pay for expenses while you wait for your first commissions to come in. You can take time off almost whenever you want/need it. Great tax write-offs.

    Cons

    Tremendous turnover. Since most salespeople don't want to learn the new system and give up their old ways they fail and quit. (If you don't want to continue to improve and/or aren't teachable and coachable then don't apply). Long and uncertain hours. No medical or benefits, or paid vacation because of commission-only structure.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to some changes and listen to the top salespeople about what needs to change instead of being stuck in the old ways for no other reason.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at K-Designers (Gold River, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Being new to Sacramento, CA, I unknowingly applied online for a job there. Received a phone call by a VERY rude lady the following day.

    She was rude the whole conversation. She called around 3 PM & asked me if I could come in the following day & I informed her I couldn't (because it was of short notice) she then begin to tell me that "the reason that I come in the following day is so I can start that day as soon as they get my paperwork done" without telling me anymore information. I was then pressured into coming in the following day despite already telling her, No.

    She then asked me to come in at 7 AM (keep in mind I had no idea what position she was referring to) & I informed her I wouldn't be able to. She then snapped her lips & sounded very annoyed saying, She will schedule me for 10 AM then. I simply replied with an "I guess." Shocked at her behavior as a recruiter/manager/HR or whoever she was, as she failed to mention who she even was, except for the fact that it was for K Designers. She was VERY pushy.

    She then began spewing out the address & I stopped her to ask if she can email me the information so I can have a hard copy to look at, also some more information on this company. She then cut me off, "You know what, to be honest, I really don't have time to write you an email, so just write it down." She then continued giving me the address as I pretended to write it down, already knowing I was skipping this, just because of how rude she was.

    She then said, "Come at 8:30" (even though we "agreed" on 10 PM) then hung up without even a goodbye.

    Needless to say, I didn't show up for this "on the spot job" and I don't regret a thing. Except for the fact that I should've been nastier to this lady & not taking her name down & writing an official complaint to her company. People like this should not be working with other people. I would not trust these people to work on my home, if I can't even trust to work for them.

    Interview Questions

    • It was more of a demand then a question.

      "Come in tomorrow at 7. We will do your paperwork then you can start that day."
