Pros
  • I love working as a Design Consultant with 3 Day Blinds because of the flexible schedule, great pay with an awesome bonus structure and amazing support (in 6 reviews)

Cons
  • There is a fair amount of turnover in the customer service department, and working with newer reps can be an extreme challenge (in 8 reviews)

  • They constantly talk about the fabulous Bonus structure yet it is near impossible to earn because they go by error rate of 1% and under (in 6 reviews)

    Pros

    This company has their act together. They make quality products and stand behind them. They offer good benefits and incentives. Earning potential is very good.

    Cons

    You will spend a lot of time driving. They do reimburse $0.54 a mile plus tolls but you will put an incredible number of miles on your car. Also, no paid vacation.

    Pros

    In depth training at several of their facilities, the trainers are amazing, very helpful and will like to actually see you succeed inside their training center.

    Cons

    Working with a manager who has her favorites and takes appointments away from you to give to her top sales people; the manager pretends to know it all but when you ask a question she tells you to call customer service, this company is a revolving door, the people that I trained with are all currently gone from the company within weeks, poor management skills especially when management plays favorites and purposely messes with your sales quota and gives fake appointments to give away real appointments to senior sales reps for an easy sell. This is a sales position, BUT YOUR NOT ALLOWED TO PREQUALIFY THE SALE; this particular manager is sneaky and will pretend she has your best interest, but don't be fooled, she isn't a team player. Again she has her favorites, whom she resorts to for answers to questions she should know and pushes off her responsibilities onto them. Products are very expensive and the quality doesn't justify the price. The commission and bonus structure and "errors" is set up for you to fail and the manager will take a customers word before she does her own hardworking employees. I won't be here for long, this company and the New Jersey territory is a revolving door. And it has all to do with management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of leading with an iron fist, try leading by example. Maybe learn the products that you are pushing your employees to sell and stop pushing your responsibilities onto your top sales people. Believe me, they say yes to helping, because they're team players, but they don't want to do something that is managements responsibility. Leaders lead by example, the weak ones who don't know how to lead are the issue.

    I have been working at 3 Day Blinds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been an interior designer for about 8 years before joining 3 Day Blinds. This is my first commission based job so I was a little nervous. But after going through the training and getting set up the way they do, I feel its a great place to be. It's a slow start at first, so don't get frustrated, but for the majority of my week, I have a full schedule of appointments, which is great that the leads come in so much! I'm in the San Diego District and I love our team here. Everyone is open to giving advice and answering questions, not just from my District Sales Manager, but also the other designers. It's refreshing to be able to work well with other designers! Tarnia is my District Sales manager and she's been a gem! I work best with positive management that's open to questions and not only is she helpful with questions, she really takes to heart questions and concerns from myself and the team. So I find myself so lucky to have been placed with a great manager! I love the job too, I'm a talker so it's fun for me to meet new clients everyday. I like that I can use my design skills everyday with clients, I wish I would of looked into this company sooner! I would recommend this for any designer that's open to change and hustle!

    Cons

    You've got to love this work! The hours can sometimes be long, so you really have to manage your time well. Organization is key and the technology will help you, but you have to be open to it! I don't mind it because some days can be long, other short, so its a give and take. Overall it's still pretty good. This is also made for someone that hustles! You definitely can't sit back and hope clients will buy from you. You need to really be on your game and follow-though! Eye to detail is also key! Make sure to double check your work, don't let errors take over! That's really the only hurdle you have, yourself! Give yourself a learning curb, of course you may not be making the big bucks at first, but hang in there! This company is in it for the long haul!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, I love that we change and adapt with feedback from everyone in the company, I'm a believer in change for the good and every time we've made a change it's made my job easier. So thumbs up!

    Pros

    From the training to the field, there is non better than 3 Day Blinds.
    4 weeks of intense product,design and sales training prepares you for the position.
    Our manager, Tony Tampa is top notch. He truly wants everyone to do their best and to make a great income. He trains and uses positive encouragement for better results.
    It's a wonderful opportunity to help people get superior products that fit their design style and their budget. Window treatments add one more layer to a completed look!
    The income is fabulous!

    Cons

    You need to be comfortable with a lot of driving. Your appointments can be far from each other.

    Advice to Management

    You just can't be better! We are more than fortunate to have Tony Tampa as driving our force!

    Pros

    Great job is you like meeting new people on a daily basis. Company gives fabulous training and fabulous resources once you are in the field. It is entirely up to the Design Consultant on how much you want to earn and how you build your business. 3 Day does provide appointments and Design Consultant can add as many of their own as they can/want. Self generated appointments are compensated higher than company generated appointments. They make a great product and back it with a great team. This is a commissioned job with a minimum guarantee the first year in the field. Mileage included and health benefits available.I am over 60 and can take the time off I need to visit my kids and grand kids and still make a good living. I love this job!

    Cons

    If you are not people oriented, going into "strangers" homes every day and turning them into friends will be exhausting. This is not a job for shy or lazy people. If you are people oriented you will have a blast and make a very good living.
