    Pros

    I was offered a job and yes I have heard it was a good company.

    Cons

    They told me I would make 12.00 an hour, but guess what it didnt happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was offered a good job at another place and could have got the treatment instead of Renewal by Anderson. The manager told me if I turned them down I would get 2 dollar raise and guess what it didnt happen. Train your employees on how to fold mats and don't tell them they can't have water unless they are on break. I worked there for 1 day and the manager told me that he thought I was going to have a heat stroke and called me slow, but all of the employees told me I was fast. Don't work for Renewal by Anderson they will have you work from 8 am to 10 pm at night I am serious they had me work that late and then they let me go. Terrible company to work for.

    Pros

    The chance to advance your career is good if you have a strong work ethic.

    Cons

    This is not for someone who is looking for a typical eight to five mundane career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people who run the departments make the decisions without so much micromanagement from above.

    Unpaid, overstressed

    I worked at Renewal By Andersen

    Pros

    None. This place made me feel like scum and never even paid me.

    Cons

    On top of the idolization of the movie Glengarry Glen Ross, the management refused to answer calls about my paycheck and, as of this review, had yet to pay me for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees and stop treating customers like cattle.

    Pros

    Weekly pay. Lots of customers that are happy with the products.

    Cons

    Zero appreciation. Small office, too much gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want people to follow rules, make sure the rules are laid out for everyone. Not just for whoever isnt on your buddy list.

    Pros

    Great compensation plan that allows employees to determine how much they want to make depending on how much time they can spend. We get base pay plus two types of commission, including a fraction of the final selling price of windows. They even help with driving time and gas, which makes a big difference. Employers that are willing to appropriately compensate their employees have hardworking, happy employees that are really able to focus on their job while keeping a positive attitude. Managers are available, considerate and willing to hear what you have to say.

    My position keeps things fresh by only being in the office part of the time and getting to travel around the area and work at home shows and events the other part of the time. It's a good balance of being inside/outside and at a desk/working directly with people.

    Cons

    Job is part time and summers are very busy and winters are slower, so that can be hard if you're not careful with managing your time and money. However, you make enough commission in the summer to last or find something extra in the winter time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job being involved in day-to-day workings of the company and being able to make more informed decisions. Company is opening new offices around the NW and obviously growing.

    Pros

    Nice people, comfortable environment, interesting work, small company so it's easy to get to know everyone. The company is also known for providing good service to the public and does give back to the community.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive but that's everywhere and it's a small company so maybe doesn't pay as much as some of the larger companies but there is for the most part better job security. Certainly it's a more relaxed and down to earth environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a pretty good job so not much to say here.

    Pros

    I was recruited at my college, and this job completely changed my interests in careers. You can make $1000 in a week, and a fair base pay when you have a tough week.

    The system uses psychology that completely changes someone's mentality about door to door soliciting. Its amazing to see how quickly you can turn a rude homeowner into a customer.

    Cons

    Anything door to door is hard, but if you take it serious then you will overcome these challenges.

    Sometimes you end up not having a lot of time to knock doors if you're on a big team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate makes us (Boston office) use the call center in Minnesota. A lot of them ruin your leads, so they should let us use the Boston call center instead.
