Its a

Design/Sales Consultant (Former Employee)

ProsBasically money is the best thing about this job. When sales are good you can make a lot of money, however, slower months are impossible to survive. If you are a hard worker and a good seller than you can move up the corporate ladder.

ConsYou work at least 45-50hrs a week - 6 days a week.
The job is physically demanding. No one buys just one bag of thinset or mud for a project, so if you are loading up a customer you wind up lifting an average of 200lbs of setting materials alone.
While they promote from within, if you don't want to manage a store there is no other options for good employees.
Because the salary is 100% commission based, you need to constantly watch co-workers and your own assistant manager and manager sales numbers to make sure they are not stealing sales. There is definitely a cutthroat attitude that is not for the feint of heart.

Advice to Senior ManagementExcellent sales don't necessarily make for good managers.
Better training for employees and managers - the sink or swim mentality worked before they went public but now that you are trying to build a national brand there needs to be consistency.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at The Tile Shop, Inc. for less than a year


    Pros: Its indoors and there's a restroom Cons: This bunch expects minimum 53 hour week at barely legal pay scale ( more time is expected at the end of the pay period). … Advice to Senior Management: Value your employees... They work very, very hard. More

    Pros: If you can have repeat contractors come to you can… Cons: Your always watching your back worrying that another sales rep including assistant manager will steal your clients when your not around or take a percentage… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
