    Pros

    yes. you walk around all day so you get good exercise. and sometimes you can play wiffleball at a park nearby.

    Cons

    i would not suggest anyone work here. it is a door to door job from 11-8. they will feed you tons of lies and hype up the job to be something it is not. more than half the people dont even have a college education. stay away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest and realistic.

    I worked at Power Home Remodeling Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    When looking for a career, it's always fair to ask a set of questions to gauge the company fit, growth opportunity, compensation, etc. You can be certain that Power offers an opportunity for immense earning potential, and given the nature of the business (on-call, one call close environment) your rewards are directly correlated to the amount of effort and dedication that you put into the position. You quickly find that those who fully immerse themselves into the company culture, in training sessions and boot-camps, are the ones who rise to the managerial positions and typically stay there. Regarding the culture, you have to understand that you are on-call 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) within this role, so your work friends are your only real source of support and provides a unique cultural environment. A real work-hard/play hard mentality exists here, from weekly hangouts to an all inclusive yearly trip to Cancun in December.

    In summary: you get out what you put in, and how far you go within the ranks is how much of the kool-aid you're willing to drink.

    Cons

    This position is 100% commission based, so if you are not in a financially stable position, prepare to struggle for the first few months. You will receive $2000 over the first 4 weeks, which constitutes the advertised 'base salary,' but after that you're on your own. While there is no cold-calling required for the sales position (the marketing department knocks door to door, works trade shows to generate the appointments), you will be on-call from 7:30am to 7:30/8pm every day and have to leave at the drop of a hat to reach the appointment on time. You also won't be compensated for your gas/mileage, so if you are not performing you are essentially paying to be a part of the company. Finally, this is a one call close environment, so if you uncomfortable with a passive but high-pressure sales approach, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You certainly have a winning formula in your business model, and you can clearly prove that with your rate of growth over the past years. I would, however, recommend that in choosing leaders within the organization that more factors are considered than solely Dollar Per Lead Issued; just because someone is a great salesman does not guarantee they will be a great leader. You have lost too many solid employees because of this line in the sand and would benefit greatly if you can find a way to improve upon a 5-6 month average employee turnover.
