    Pros

    Lots of unqualified leads set from cable TV ads promoting "Free Installation," "Buy 2 Rooms get the rest of the house for free" or other promotions that give the potential customer the expectation of a low price.

    Cons

    You'll make ony 4% on most sales, and this is net (after miscellaneous/noncommissionable) items are subtracted from the sales price. I've seen over over 22 sales reps come and go and only 1 make a decent living (@ 800/wk) in only 6 weeks working with this company. (This is only for the Dayton Ohio location that also services Columbus and Cincinnati.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a month to try to make a living being an Independent Sales Contractor for Empire Today and then look in the mirror and admit that it's impossible and designed to be that way.

    Pros

    Large company with a small company feel. Management is open to suggestions and willing to listen to and implement ideas. Recognition of good ideas and implementation is met with immediate response.

    Cons

    Compared to other companies Empire might be too lax with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue the customer service focus.
