Treated Like a Used-Car dealer

Home Consultant (Former Employee)

ProsSolid Corporate Structure
Good Communication from Corporate Office
Freindly People from the Knoxville, Tennessee area (Corporate HQ)

ConsEach sales center operates as the manager sees fit, regardless of his experience and management style
Home centers away from Tenneesee area are treated differently than those in the south
Pay should be based partially on locale. West Coast is WAY more expensive to live than rural Tennessee or Kentucky.
Poor home center managers are left alone to manage poorly as long as sales figures are being met.
"Home Consultants" should not have to adopt a used car salesman mentality. We could sell cars and get paid more quickly.
The draw system of pay sucks, especially when the economy slows down and sales drop off. A base bay plus comission structure woud be nice.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the used car salesman mentality and allow people with good sales and personal interaction skills to shine and act in a way that works for them.
Promote good, young employees and let poor sales center managers leave.
Remember that certain areas of the country differ from the south. Customers in Washington, Oregon and California (for example) expect to be treated differently than "trailer lots" in the south.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
