Advancement Opportunities Family Atmosphere Charity/Giving back Fun enviroment Pay
None! I can honestly say I absolutely love working for LEI. I genuinely want to come to work every day and be around my people and co workers.

-opportunities for advancement FAST -opportunities to climb the corporate ladder -caring, colorful, and diverse staff -if you don't like what you're doing they'll try to put you on something you enjoy -hours are fairly flexible in the corporate office and short in sales (like, 4 hours a day) -the default entry level sales position makes an average of $1k a week -work with school schedules -owners buy everyone's lunch often -family culture -Christian faith based company -rewards hard work often -a career, not a job
-a little disorganized -pay structure is a little confusing -occasionally a paycheck will get messed up, but mostly never -it is HARD work -difficult to make it in the company if shy or lacking "gift of the gab"1

The people are wonderful and honestly treat each other like family. The whole atmosphere is positive and encouraging. The hours are flexible. The opportunity for advancement are quick and performance based.
It is cold calling personal homes during the day, evening and Saturdays. Although I have many years of experience with B2B sales, calling on homes was not a good for me. The hours are M-R 12-7 pm and Sat 9-2:30 which was hard for me to have time with my children.1

Love the advancement opportunities and the income potential. I've been with LEI for 2 and a half years and it's been an amazing journey. I've learned more about myself and business than I could ever hope for and have made an awesome amount while doing so.
Must be resilient and understand that sales is about consistency and trusting the process. This career is not for those who are complacent.LEI Home Enhancements Response5y

Great advancement opportunities. Since I came to work for LEI I have been treated like family and promoted! I appreciate the team environment and positive atmosphere. Thank you LEI Home Enhancements for my chance to shine!
The fact that they don't have more cities near the beach.1

Good Work Family Managers help and are involved with training Free food most days Opportunity for advancement
Walk door to door and sell windows memorize sales pitch weather can be a pain HIGH TURNOVER pay for your own gas During the interview they don't tell you all the logistics of it but you get the idea when you leave. There is a week training process and you get paid but very little. They sell you on an idea of working up the corporate scale. Even though you can set an appointment you don't actually get the commission if the sales rep does not close the deal. This happened to me multiple times. I would get around 4 - 8 "Sets" everyday and my commission was about 2K every two weeks. Sure that sounds good 4K every month but in reality it should have been much higher, also the cost of gas and paying for my personal car repairs did not help. In addition to that it is very easy to work well over full time when training to get a promotion. The numbers that they give you on salaries is only accurate if the system works as it should. But to no surprise it does not. Don't expect to get paid big money unless everyone can put in the effort to care about everybody else.9

Man, this company has changed my life around 180 degrees. Before I found LEI, I was your typical college student, just doing the bare minimum to get by. I also didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. I had been praying for direction. After getting my Associates Degree in Business College, I was contacted by a woman in the HR Dept for LEI. The opportunity sounded like something I would be good at, and I was kind of interested/but skeptical. So, I accepted the interview to just check it out. After sitting down and seeing the pay, the opportunity for advancement, and how the company was growing, of course I took the position. In my first two weeks I had made more money working part time than I did in a whole month working an hourly job. Not only that, but I worked my way up into Sales within 2-3 months. To this day, I have been given the opportunity to travel and develop other business-minded and business-like people to be as successful and prosperous as I have been over the last 2-3 years. When I started with the company, we were a $1.9 Million company. We are now just shy of an $18 Million Corporation. As the growth and money speaks very highly, those aren't the things I am thankful for. The leaders at LEI are all people I look up to. Since I have started at LEI, I have learned to become a servant to others, to be a giver not a taker, the importance of HUMILITY, perseverance, consistency, to be positive, and I have learned to set and master goals for myself and my teams. I have been able to apply these skills and the experience to other parts of my life, excelling in those areas as well. I was not any of these things before I found LEI. Now, I can honestly say that through humility and servitude, I have changed several lives and their families lives throughout multiple cities, by helping them with the same opportunity that I was given. I thank God every day for what he has done, and what is still to come, for me and my family.
Just like anything else in life, there are pro's and con's to just about everything. In business, you have to be organized, good at planning and preparation, punctual, and efficient. If you are not use to being all of those things because maybe like myself, you never had to be, then it is difficult getting to that point. But, you will. As long as you don't give up. Also, in sales it is easy to become negative and to let other negative people effect the way that you perform or think. You have to remember that you will either succeed or you will fail. Whichever one you end up doing is because of you, is because you didn't get back up after you were knocked down, or is just because you're so self-righteous that you made bad decisions in your work-place and were reprimanded for your actions. I'm sure that a lot of the negative comments you see on GlassDoor (about any company, not just LEI) are because the person either didn't get back up after getting knocked down, or they took for granted what they had and were let go for making bad decisions. Just promise yourself that if you didn't get the results, maybe it was because the business just wasn't for you. Which is okay! Because if it was for everyone, everyone would work here! I say, just give it a shot and give it 100%. If it doesn't work out or you prefer you want to be in a different position with a different company, you know you tried.6

Endless opportunities for advancement as long as you show effort. Thought this was door to door sales; however, homes were pre-selected based on specific criteria.
The only issue is I am constantly moving with my husband and there wasn't a location in California.3
