-Paid work training to Italy and New York.
-Great high end client relations
-opportunity to make contact with other designers, architects and builders
-10am to 6pm means a really good work / life balance
- Appliance brand training
-Beautiful showroom environment
-Highest quality kitchen and bath furniture hands down
-no pay raises

-You must protect your client relations and projects.
-Coworkers, manager or other showrooms will steal them from you if the opportunity arises. In the end its sales over anything else.
-Clients can be overly demanding and sometimes absolutely crazy...but it's expected when dealing with the wealthiest people in Los Angeles if not the United States.
-Clients try their hardest to steal your designs without paying for them by taking pictures with their phone. Never leave a client alone with your drawings.
-Constant issues with plumbing products can be a pain to deal with. Takes a lot of time out of your day to locate parts for one bath faucet.
