    I have been working at Ethan Allen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent product line with a lot of custom options. Designers get portion of all web sales and web traffic. Good brand name recognition. Loyal clients.

    Cons

    Weekends are highest traffic days so it's hard to take them off, especially if you're new and need to build a client base. You have to learn to work the "free" design service to your advantage. people who have no business experience may struggle unless they have a great manager or team to guide them, the public offers many opportunities but you have to know how to work them.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better sales training and hire fewer weak business people who crash and burn. Allow retainers for big projects so designers don't waste their time.

    Interview

    Fun but long like so many other hiring processes. I wouldn't go through it again unless I was sure the job was really interesting. They ask for too much information in this form on the survey.
