    I worked at California Closets

    Pros

    Working for a reputable nationally well known company. Franchise has support from corporate offices. Very nice staff at local office.

    Cons

    Management favors designers. If you fall out of that category then you are treated differently and not as valued. Working 10 + hour days are the norm. Out of closet companies to work for this is the best out of all the bad. I expected a higher caliber of people and a true team environment going into this for a nationally recognized company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are other employees besides the designers, listen to your entire team, fight for them and treat them fairly with the same respect. Eliminate favoritism and you will see how your team can and will work for you if you work for them.

    Cons

    So far, I have no cons to report. I have had a really positive experience working for California Closets. The only con I can say is that my long term career goals are not in the interior design field.

    Pros

    Great product to sell, non-pressure sales approach, great management. Wonderful support system with ongoing training, industry-leading CAD software and IPad sales materials.

    Must work some evenings and weekends; schedule varies which is hard to plan around but which also provides some variation in the week and some flexibility.

    I worked at California Closets

    Pros

    The designers and staff are all great to work with.

    Cons

    One owner is hostile, foul mouthed, belittling, and rarely has a nice word to say. He has a short fuse and if the wind blows wrong he turns into a nightmare. He is the only reason I left the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let one of the owners speak to ANYONE!
