Pros

Power HRG is a group of like-minded people who are there to make things happen; therefore, if someone is looking to just slide by under the radar, they won't make it. In a company of DOers the expectation is that you will do your job and do it well.
With that comes some things that would shock most companies: 1) Power is very clear on what is expected of you and your role in achieving the company's goals. 2) When you achieve your goals and perform as expected or above, you are rewarded handsomely and immediately. 3) Your coworkers genuinely want to see you succeed and find a long term role at their side.
Power is a team. A team that each of its members can be and are proud of because it is changing the remodeling industry. We are doing it by holding no one but ourselves to a standard higher than anyone else. If you are a DOer, you'll fit right in and your life will never be the same :)

Cons

It's not a 9 to 5 kind of job. Power becomes a lifestyle and a mindset. As a read a lot of reviews, people complain about the work/life balance and how Power demands so much which is absolutely true. Power demands 110% of your EFFORT. If you've ever played a sport, so did your coach. No coach ever told their players, "I'll be happy with you giving me 75% effort while you are at practice and never working out or practicing on your own time." Not one.
Power is the same way because it is a team of people working together. Power people count on one another and work hard because they do it for each other. Sure, it's demanding, but it gets easier as you mature and discover your own strengths (which Power will help you do). All Power really requires is effort and the side effect of giving an effort at your job is becoming more efficient at it, easier hours, and better pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A few offices are on an island in the sense of being further from HQ and the bulk of the offices. Company-wide or inter-office events that allow for those offices to mingle more often may help further company-wide culture.

    Pros

    Amazing training, cool people to work alongside, good commission scale for the ticket prices you sell, can work independently away from the office, company paid trip (not including airfare). Upper management cares about the sales division

    Cons

    100% commission including car and gas money. It may not seem like a big deal but the amount of driving you do they need something in place to keep you on the road. However the offices are hiring at an alarming rate probably because they need to protect themselves from their high turnover rate especially during the winter months. Also the appointments were supposed to be within a limited number of miles from my home address and I would end up having to drive across Long Island with little time or notice. You are on call everyday and must WAIT around for work to come your way, this may seem nice but it is a horrible time-management job where you're always on the edge of your seat and afraid to commit to anything until you know the day is done. Lastly, they keep 2/3 of the commission you earn-meaning if you sell $900 you will only get $300 from it for your first paycheck. Essentially they keep the commission you're owed "as insurance" however its just so that the money stays in their name longer so they can recoup the interest off of it. They manage your money for you and when you do finally resign or get laid off it is like pulling teeth to receive your final checks, not to mention they take out taxes from a 1099 check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give remodeling consultants something to live off of, if not them at least their car. Also senior reps get to save cancelled or financial declines essentially stealing sales from other reps that may be just starting out.

    Pros

    Company culture is unmatched, the guys that you work with become family and any one of your co-workers would go out of their way to help you to be successful, even if it meant that they would have less opportunity to put money in their own pocket.
    Sales training is top-notch, the sales aptitude You're given all the tools you need to succeed, it just depends on how you choose to use them. Yes, power has the system down, and yes there's a script, but if you have no idea on how to tailor a script then you will not be successful.
    Compensation is lucrative if you can earn it, but not all do for various reasons; the main one would be "winging-it", you listen to your managers, commit to the proven system, and commit fully to the job/lifestyle then you will be financially free.
    You're able to actually grow as an individual if you actually give it your all. The values they claim to live by are not just talk, they are values demonstrated by all superiors and are contagious if you fully invest in this as a career. Can truly say you learn the traits needed for success. More beneficial, you learn ALOT about yourself as a person, in addition to a lot about how many different kinds of people there are out there. You learn how to connect with people, read and diagnose a situation quickly, become a great public speaker and to say the least grow thick skin.
    I cant say enough about the people that you work with. Everyone in the organization is looking out for you best interest, but also you genuinely want to look out for the best interest of your peers. For example, marketers are doing everything they can to get reps appointments, reps are doing everything they can to make sure the marketers get paid, and beyond that every person that you deal with in the process is looking out for you. Selfless environment where people go above and beyond for you. Got a question about something technical and it's midnight? You don't feel weird calling your project manager to get the specifics, you just woke up someone to get advice or a more specific answer, the pick up and are happy, actually excited to help/educate you? That doesn't happen anywhere. Special shout out to Chicago's TCI dept. DP is the the best of the best, always willing to go above and beyond to help a rep out and like everything else, if you utilize the resources available to you, you will be successful.
    You can speak with conviction because you know you work for a company that does things right, and is always looking to improve. If you can be mentally tough and disciplined, everything your told at your interview is attainable

    Cons

    Hours are crazy and you're on call basically 9am-7pm and you never know where you might be going, or where it is located for that matter. Very mentally tough, and the swings can be debilitating. Nothing is every for sure, but you can control it to a certain extent. Never know exactly what you will be making but it is in your control. Very hard to have a normal social life with this job, you don't work normal hours and can be working till 1am. Very hard on a relationship, better suited for single guys, unless you have been there for a while; the longer you're there the more you control your schedule and can actually have a normal life where you can spend time with your significant other/family. It is a mental battle everyday and difficult to separate work life from personal. Pay for your own gas initially(reimbursed on taxes). As much as there are people willing to help, much of the time when you need them ASAP they are working and can not help you; not always the case but happens because they are doing the same thing your doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PII managers should be more equipped with knowledge of what a sales appointment is like and vice versa. With a growing office you should have more people you know you can turn to while on an appointment that are off the clock. Difficult for managers to handle so many people when they are in need asap. Great system, great culture, sales training and installs are top notch; it's just the grey area between a sale and a project visit that could be more efficient. Entire process aka before-after a sale should be more transparent to employees to become more efficient and adapt to answer question/comments made by h/o's; most importantly more enjoyable for the customer.
