    Pros

    some of the reasons oi like working here is that the owner has an open door policy He understands where you are in life and is very helpful

    Cons

    The only challenge I see here is the same as any other home improvement company: the quality of leads

    Stability in an otherwise unstable industry!

    Pros

    The team atmosphere really makes coming to work every day a pleasure. In today's economy the home improvement industry has been hit the hardest. There is a ton of competition for customers and homeowners just don't seem to be investing as much into their homes as they've done in the past.

    Instead of closing the doors like so many other companies have in the past years, ownership really ensured us that everything would be alright, and that business would continue to grow as it has for the past 30 years. They've invested more into marketing, started partnerships with Wal-Mart and continue to employ new workers.

    The stability and continued effort to grow during tough times ensures that Premier will be around for years to come. They really value hard work and continue to recognize the efforts with generous compensations.

    Cons

    The benefits and vacation packages could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step it up with benefits and offer paid vacations.

    Sales leads are dead on arrival.

    I worked at Premier Window & Building

    Pros

    Tax advantage of independent contractor status.

    That's the only plus, but I need twenty words to make this website happy.

    Cons

    Sales leads are set by any means possible, not because the prospect has an imminent home improvement in mind. Examples: "We'll come out and give you a free estimate so that if you decide to do the job in the future, you'll know how much it will cost." or what they call "redbooking" in which telemarketers promise previous non-buyers that prices are much lower now, even if that non-buyer has already been previously promised the lowest possible price. Sales leads are run by managers who cherry-pick the best for themselves and for the top salesmen, newbies get the junk.

    Sales made at typical market prices pay 6% total commission, too little to live on. Sales must be made at list or above to make a 10% or better commission.

    Company has no installers, doesn't even have a warehouse! It's just a sales organization. Because they have so little control over install, their ratings on Angie's List and Consumer Checkbook are below average. Customer's who do due diligence won't be buying from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design your business model to be sustainable by others besides yourselves. When your employees and customers win, you win also.
