    Stay away from California Closets Las Vegas

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe designers and staff are all great to work with.

    ConsOne 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 Senior ManagementDon't let one of the owners speak to ANYONE!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great product, poor management/people skills

    Designer (Former Employee) Wheeling, IL

    ProsGreat product, good installers, decent pay. As long you don't ask questions and handle all customer complaints yourself you can avoid management.

    ConsAbusive management. No respect for clients shown by management. Designers do not support one another in company meetings. Owners are divorced and personal disagreements are on display daily.
    Must be available to clients 24/7 by phone and email.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with one another and employees clearly and professionally.

    Corporate's values are not reflected in this franchise.

    Design Consultant (Current Employee) Wheeling, IL

    ProsFlexible work hours, excellent product, good training program. Most customers are great. Would be best for a secondary income, since it is straight commission and sales may not be consistent.

    ConsLack of support from franchise management, poor communication, verbally abusive management style, inconsistent sales tools, overworked support staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your business as much as your employees do. Empower individuals by listening to their concerns.

    Design Studio Manager

    Design Studio Manager (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsGreat company culture. Franchise owned so dependent on your specific area, but ours was like a family. There were about 40 of us total. Leaders were extremely motivating and great mentors.

    ConsMy job required specific hours as well as working nights, weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEither pay more or offer better incentives for your retail locations.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
