    I worked at Closet World full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No cold calling, all warm leads and repeat customers filtered via Closet World Corporate office. Flexibility to accept or decline leads, ability to work interdependently via home office and travel to customers homes/businesses, working one on one with client/customers, helping customers to fulfill their desired design outcome and building a report for repeat business.

    Cons

    Once fully trained it is 100% commission based and you have to factor that into your mileage/travel/gas. An average customer meeting can go anywhere from 2-6 hours and you may not make a dime off all that time spent traveling, consulting, measuring, hand designing and helping the customer to receive the best deal possible. It is a lot of work and personal expense for what can lead to no compensation.

    Advice to Management

    A base pay plus commission would keep Sales Designers on for the long run and help new ones be able to stay on. There is a lot to this job and each lead regardless of outcome should amount to some sort of pay for the Sales Designer for all the time and money they have to spend working with that customer.

    Pros

    Set appointments, bonuses, co-workers are cool. Initially they pay per appointment...

    Cons

    Commission structure decreases to straight commission after one month. Commission is only %6 plus bonuses if you meet your quota.

    I worked at Closet World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    meeting clients/the design process. Flexible Schedule(which still isn't great. You must be available full time even if you are given 2-3 jobs a week)

    Cons

    the entire company uses dated methods of business. You are entertained, under paid and treated like a juvenile.

    Advice to Management

    Give your customers quality design and respect.
