    "Nice place to work"

    Former Employee - Design Consultant

    I worked at Porcelanosa USA full-time

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work at Porcelanosa Walnut Creek. Not only is it a beautiful showroom, but I was able to help people create designs for their home remodel projects, new construction, and commercial spaces. Known for it's high-end, top quality products, the design options were endless. The company maintains a hands-on, friendly, and down-to-earth approach for meeting the customers' needs. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to work in the tile, kitchen, and bath industry.

    Cons

    6-8 week lead time on some materials.

    Pros

    - Was given a lot of assistance while transitioning into my role. - Felt appreciated for hard work. - Friendly coworkers - Generous amount of paid holidays which even include New Years Eve and Christmas Eve, in addition to your own paid days off. - The company seems to be constantly growing - The company's founder emailed us at the start of the new year with his direct contact information, which really makes you feel like there is an open line of communication with higher ups, even to those in Spain.

    Cons

    I'm still in my first year, so nothing so far!

    "Porcelanosa Showroom Sales: Northern California"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Showroon Design Consultant; N Calif in Walnut Creek, CA

    I worked at Porcelanosa USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is large and has lots of money to make a big statement with whatever they do.

    Cons

    From day one you are told NOT to tell the owners in Spain anything while on the video conference each month. Like the other review stated, the commission structure is outdated (9 years old!) especially since California is one of the most expenses places to live. If your not in the San Jose showroom don’t expect to see much of a commission check, regardless of how hard you work for thr company, which hurts your motivation. You are told during the interview that you will bring 3 checks home a month- NOT TRUE. You are not shown the commission structure until after you start the job. When you offer any ideas or suggestions, you are shot down and the manager in Northern California will even get upset with you (narcasitic).
