    Carpet One is a good National organization as a whole but Paradise Carpet One is a crappy place to work.

    Retail Sales (Current Employee)
    Lawrence, KS

    ProsGood national product support. Poor assessment of franchise owners.

    ConsHorrible leadership and management. They lost or fired every good employee they ever had. Changed compensation plans with the seasons and business cycle or whenever they were going to be tight on cash.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a different career.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    There is no room for advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsThe best part of KW Flooring was the coworkers.

    ConsThere is no room for advancement. The morale is terrible. The company has too much competition between stores.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe the comany would be a great place to work if there was a training program to help help employee succeed at their jobs and there was some kind of room for advancement. In addition, there needs to be a program set in place that would stop different divisions from competing with each other.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    High Costs

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of top flooring lines to sell. Lots of product knowledge available from industry reps.

    Great Opportunity To Be Successful, If Willing To Put In The Hours

    Sales (Current Employee)

    Prosenjoyable atmosphere, responsive management. It was a great opportunity to grow in basic business fundamental knowledge and experience in advancements. It is a great place to work with few negative experiences. You must work hard to be successful and if not willing to commit then do not attempt to work for the company. If you work hard you will be compensated. Very enjoyable work life balance, if that is a concern of yours.

    ConsSometimes I experienced, special treatment amongst management. But when does that not happen?

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue what you are doing and the future outlook for growth will be phenomenal.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
