    Subject to the law of diminishing returns

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsGood products, good customer service

    ConsAll transportation costs out of sales reps pocket. Drive 200 miles to sell one window; commission pays $12. Less than one appointment per day. Floor flooded with to many reps

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not schedule appointments for products or services not offered by the company; screen or glass or door repair projects

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place with tons of leads

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are a good sales person you will thrive at Feldco. Other reviews from disgruntled former employees were most likely because they didn't know how to sell. I am sure they will fail at all places they go to. If you cant sell with a brand like Feldco then you are probably too stupid to sell anywhere.
    Awesome leads
    Always pays on time
    Great brand image in the marketplace
    Good products for a competitive price

    ConsTough hours. You have to work nights and weekends.
    Lots of driving. You most use your own car and drive to appointments.
    Highly competitive. If you are not there to "win", you will most likely get fired quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep bringing in those leads. The job is tough so make sure to continue to give accolades to employees.

    Using you to make money, one window at a time.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEffectively trained new hires and other employees were fun to work with. Upper mgmt communication was good, with regards to expectations, however at times unrealistic.

    ConsThey don't care about their employees and use them at all costs, the phrase "using you to make money" rings true here. Make unreasonable requests of employees at times. Compensation and support were terrible. Little reward for above expectation performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat your employees as replaceable and value what they bring. Nurture and grow your faithful and good employees, you get out of them what you give. Treat the installers better, make them happy, they are your direct customer experience and everyone else's job becomes easier and more fulfilling. Value ALL your employees.

    free installation, buy one get one free, 30% off..........what a joke

    Sales (Current Employee) Downers Grove, IL

    Pros- name recognition
    - descent product
    - advertising
    - locations of offices
    - there is really nothing except for the first three things listed.

    Cons- not getting paid what your supposed to
    - terrible management
    - good luck making a yearly bonus
    - consistently having to check and recheck your commissions because things just happened to be missed.
    - consistently having to lie to customers, good luck explaining the "buy one get one free" sale, or the "free installation" sale.
    - (hint) basic installation is included in the pirice of the window
    - constantly hiring new salemen to replace the ones to fed up to work there any more

    Advice to Senior Managementdo not sell your salesmen, sell your customers. Treat your sales team with respect. Learn how to properly run a sale (not the same one over and over again). Don't screw your salesmen on there commissions. Try keeping someone more than a year or two, it might benefit you to keep your salemen happy, you might be supprised how they treat you in return.

    Sweat Shop!!!

    Installer (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsWinter Season off, with no pay.

    ConsThey want you to work in the rain, snow, hail, heat doesn't matter. They take money from your checks for supposed services that someone else had to repair for you, but when you ask what job it was for no one knows. The place is horrible. Customers are always upset no matter what.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit!!! Hire people who know something about windows. The operations manager before Feldco was a warehouse boy at target.
