    I have been working at The Tile Shop, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is not a typical sales job, it allows for creativity and working with people to achieve their design goals. It's a great fit for anyone interested in design or home improvement and is an excellent way to get started in the industry. You can build relationships with contractors and your good customer service, attention to detail, follow up, and hard work drives repeat business and the potential for big sales. It's...

    Cons

    Just like other retail jobs, the only con is the long weekend hours but that only allows for more sales and making more money.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked in several stores and with multiple managers and see a common work ethic of dedication, ownership, and hard work.

    I have been working at The Tile Shop, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    With the largest selection of tile and accessories, free design work, and the best return policy in the industry, The Tile Shop offers unbound opportunity in the world of tile.

    Cons

    Literally everything. There's no formal training outside of an occasional powerpoint presentation glossing over key points. Turnover is ridiculously high, due to that there are tons of inconsistencies in their transactions that have given The Tile Shop a bad name in the business, this leads to low pro-customer business, which in turn leads to low sales and more turnover. It's a downward cycle. Managers are promoted...

    I worked at The Tile Shop, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Potential to earn a lot, assisting with designs, managers are your friend until they aren’t hitting numbers

    Cons

    Long hours, contractors and customers contacting you on your days off-otherwise you’d miss out on a sale, poor system to give credit where necessary, too much competition, sales goals being shoved down your throat, not hourly plus commission, no paid overtime, managers don’t give you the time off you are entitled to

    Advice to Management

    If someone works their tail off, don’t fill their heads with reasons why they aren’t good enough. Not everyone is a car salesman- not everyone likes to be referred to as pushy.
