    It has its ups and downs.

    Field Marketer (Current Employee)
    Fairfax, VA

    ProsGreat coworkers to surround yourself with. Compensation is generous when earned. Company treats employees really well.

    ConsBattling against the climate. You must be willing to knock on doors during winter storms, thunderstorms, code red heat, etc. The tension received from prospects can be difficult to bear with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop having us do outdoor field marketing during life threatening weather conditions.. And enough with the false hope.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Be Aware of Everything

    Maryland (Former Employee)
    Lanham, MD

    ProsIf you are socialite and can carry the "Brouhaha" Marine-like mentality around company goals.. you'll fit in here quite nicely. The employees are very helpful! If you get stuck on something and need some understanding, the employees are happy to assist you with their knowledge and understanding of the field.

    ConsBe prepared to drive a lot! I was putting in 100 - 200 miles on my car daily! That can add up to a lot of expenditures. Gas and wear & tear on your car is not compensated for by the company so you will be spending you own money on your car's upkeep and mileage.

    In addition, beware the managers! They will collaborate to induce your termination if they do not like you. Their is a lot of office politics going on here so be prepared to deal with it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs an Equal Opportunity Employer, you should provide your staff with an EQUAL opportunity to sell. Managers should not be allowed to withhold leads from their sales staff based on personal feelings or disdain. The only time an employee should be limited in their interactions with potential customers should be as a result of poor performance and for the purpose of retraining. In addition, your company's metrics and the way employees are reviewed need to be revamped and modified. When a sales person arrives at a specified location to meet a client and where the client failed to meet that appointment, it should never be reviewed as an aspect of the sales person's performance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fair and Square

    Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Lanham, MD

    ProsIf you are truly a closer you will make $150K - $225K... Really!
    Great customer service and a very competitive product.
    Top tier leads for sales performance.
    A place where you can make a lot of money, save a lot of money and get out!

    ConsYou will work 60+ hours/ week (don't pay attention to the schedule).
    Be ready drive 125-175 miles per day.
    You must be friendly and in a great relationship with the managers at all times.
    If you're not making at least $90K your job is always in jeopardy.
    If you're not in the top 10 or 15 you're not making $90K.
    There are 50+ outside reps at anytime. Quite a revolving door. Very few oldtimers.
    Managers can say what they want and however they want to say it to you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more professional. Run the company on the inside the way that it is perceived from the outside.

    Ok

    Factory Representative (Current Employee)
    Lanham, MD

    ProsThe Factory Representatives are great people, fun to work with

    ConsSchedule, it can be a long day appointments at 10am, 2pm and 6-7pm. Yes more appointments more opportunities for income. But your day can be over 10hrs long + travel time, and down time between appointments....

    Great but Challenging Part Time Job

    Canvasser (Former Employee)
    Landover, MD

    ProsThe people you work with on a day to day basis are fun individuals and are very supportive of your ability to succeed. The pay is excellent for an hourly job with no education requirements, $13/hr + $50 bonus for every lead set. On average for working about five days a week, you clear $900 after taxes. They pick you up for thunderstorms, bathroom breaks, and provide all the training and methodology you need to excel.

    ConsThe job is mentally and physically challenging. Often times, homeowners are rude, angry, and incredibly frustrating. The hardest part is keeping a good positive outlook and being pleasantly persistent in all weather conditions and homeowner situations. If you can push through and set appointments you will do fine.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement seems to do a fairly good job. They provide bonus contests for canvass employees such as free Redskins Tickets in the company suite at FedEx field, free U2 tickets, and $500 cash bonuses. More programs such as these are advised.

    My experience at Thompson Creek has been filled with friendly outgoing people who enjoy working together as a team.

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Lanham, MD

    ProsGreat group dynamic, team oriented, very supportive atmosphere, friendly faces in all departments, well oiled machine

    ConsSometimes the work load is a bit overwhelming but with so many people available to help out, everything can be completed as a team!

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to let employees express themselves, it's the best way to get employees to do their best if they have the freedom to be themselves!

    A grind with little support if you are not doing well.

    OUTSIDE SALES (Former Employee)
    Lanham, MD

    ProsMoney, if you're doing well

    ConsRevolving Door Employer, High Pressure, No compensation for gas/expenses. Little regard to loyalty to company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProfessionalism is substandard for a company that aims to grow nationally.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
