I worked at Bath Fitter full-time (Less than a year)
Employees all get along. If you start today, you'll probably be second in high seniority
Straight commision. Use your own vehicle, no vehicle allowance, no gas allowance, no expense reimbursement. Required to be on call 12 hours a day without compensation. Sales manager is also a salesman on commision plus a small salary. Over a sixty mile radius sales territory. When interviewed, was told to expect 2 to 3 QUALIFIED leads a day. Turns out we were lucky to get one. Except the manager who always had two. Many days we got none. They covered it up by saying they wanted us to trane that day. The only qualification was they were breathing, The manager, who was horrible salesman, cherry picked through the leads to get what he thought were laydowns. Also would not let us go back on a call even if they asked for us. He would take the sale that we already set up, Most leads would tell you they just made the appointment to get the call center to quit calling. Many leads would be cancelled before you got there. Many times I would get a call from the HQ call center minutes before arriving to the home. Which meant 60+ miles there and back. Frankly, what little money you do make, you eat up in gas. Their solution was "you can right off the mileage at the end of the year on your taxes", True, however my gas station required I pay them every day. Longest seniority for salesman in the Grand Rapids branch was 6 months. The top salesman, who they liked to use as an example, had one good month, and quit the day he got paid. Figured he broke even and cut his losses.
Advice to Management
Don't make the sales manager a commision salesman. It turns them into liars and theives.
