The Shade Store – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Three Generations of Expertise

We're a 70 year old family business that prides itself on delivering a world-class customer experience and product. We’ve revolutionized the custom window treatment industry by simplifying and stylizing a traditionally complicated and expensive purchase.  We’re growing quickly and expanding aggressively: 65+ showrooms across the country, a state-of-the-art e-commerce website and a beautiful yearly catalog. But with all this exciting growth, our core values and principles have not changed.  We still handcraft every product right here in the USA and we still treat each and every customer with the greatest appreciation and professionalism.  These are our guiding principles and the backbone of our company – they will always remain true.

    I have been working at The Shade Store full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work atmosphere in beautiful showrooms; average compensation with opportunity for added commissions & bonus. Available corporate assistance almost 24/7. Self-managed, every team member is an equal.

    Cons

    Additional PTO days - 10 for vacation and sickness is not enough for those of us that work additional hours in a day/week/month and also work from home because we are dedicated. Pay attention to those that put forth 110% and recognize/compensate them for their dedication.

    Advice to Management

    See notes above in "Cons" - constructive criticism for our owners.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Shade Store in November 2016.

    Interview

    The person I interviewed with was extremely cold and rude. The interviewer barely asked me about my experience and instead kept asking me about college and what I wanted after I graduated. I graduated 4 years ago and have been working management positions since then. Why the interviewer kept asking me about college I am unsure.
