    I have been working at Chem-Dry full-time

    Pros

    - Gain a lot experience in carpet cleaning and process, also with sales and customer relations.
    - Potential to make average amount of $$ (25K - 30K)
    - Get to meet a variety of people from all different walks of life
    - Mainly independent (as an employee) once out of the shop
    - No gas or vehicle maintenance costs (covered by company)

    Cons

    - High expectations for one individual (Sales Pro, Carpet Knowledge Pro, Carpet Care Pro, Customer Service Pro)
    - Work solo (at least at the franchise I work for) having to repeatedly lift heavy equipment in and out of home as well as move furniture and belongings solo
    - Commission based, with much unpaid work such as Estimates, All Driving time, Re-services (not always your mistakes), loading and unloading
    - Unpaid driving can be anywhere from 1.5 - 5.5 hours a day
    - Very long days 10+ hours per day on average
    - Employer expects employee to pay out of pocket for all damages that may occur (accident or not)
    - No room for advancement, once on commission that is "as good as it gets"
    - No benefits or incentive to make a career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality attracts quality. To have long lasting employees that will want to stick around, you need to create a position that is worth staying around for.
