I have been working at Bath Fitter part-time

Pros

It's nice in that you don't have to deal with $$, you arrive, windex your display, and sit for a 5 hr shift, then go home. It's great to get out of the malls and work Home and Garden Shows, because people are LOOKING to renovate and the leads flow faster than you can count them. But sometimes only the senior reps get the chance, which in my opinion, is all wrong when you're trying to build a team; it's a morale blow to employees who have been working constantly in the malls which produce much fewer leads.

Cons

Unless you are new to the mall, the shifts can be so boring, because the mall walkers are there, and the regular shoppers, and you rarely see new faces. Sometimes only 3 people will even bother to look at the display in a 5 hr shift. Trying to engage people can be discouraging because you can't sell a bath renovation to someone who doesn't need or want it. Obtaining leads is difficult even for people who DO want to renovate, because most people don't like giving out their personal information. And after a few years at the mall, you feel as if you've saturated the market.

Advice to Management

1. Give everyone a fair chance at outside events, don't play favorites. Build the team, let new employees work together with seasoned employees. 2. Don't focus on obtaining leads in this day and age when people protect their privacy. Instead, distribute coupons with the sales rep's name on it, and let the customer call YOU. If it turns into a sale, give commission bonus to the rep whose name is on the coupon. 3. Don't call people to death. If they say NO, respect it.

    I have been working at Bath Fitter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Company paid 1 week intensive program,
    -Although commissioned based, they book the appointments for you!
    -Understanding and caring managers

    Cons

    Towards the year end, there are less appointments to go around.
    They don't show national sales figures to the field, never knowing how you stand against the others,
    Why are there no sales contests or recognition awards?
    Other than excellent commissions you can earn, what other incentives are there?
    Sales people are a competitive breed and thrive on sales achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Exceptionally great products, unrivaled training programs, but can use a little assistance in marketing and sales incentives.
