    Pros

    Income and Benefits were good, but for a price!

    Cons

    Everything.... They expect so much from you, yet give you no support when its needed. No work-life balance. They don't see you as an asset to the company, or even a human being; you are just a number, and it is all about the numbers!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and maybe your turn over rate won't be so high!

    Pros

    Rare opportunity to find a company that you can make a terrific living, have great benefits, and work for a management team that wants to add value to your career. Design skills combined with sales ability can create a long lasting customer relationships, very fulfilling and rewarding career. Great health care plan, 401k and long term benefits.

    Cons

    Multi tasking to the max is a requirement. Negative Nellies will try to bring you down and hinder your success. You have to maintain the ability to rise above. Work life balance is difficult but if you ask for what you need then management will accommodate you.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who put in the extra work and effort to be successful. This isn't little league everyone doesn't get a trophy for showing up.

    Pros

    It’s a job... it pays you money... you will quit anyways so don’t worry. Find a better job to grow in your career! This is just a job.

    Cons

    DO NOT BE DESPERATE! They offer jobs to almost anyone. Say NO No work life balance at all. VP is not a leader, he is a 2 faced “boss” figure. No one has your back, they will throw you under the bus to make themselves look better. Upper management takes weekend off and requires the rest to work 6 days a week. If your not at your numbers they will force you to work 7 days a week. They do not and will not value... you. It’s all a show until they hire the next person.

    Advice to Management

    Value people. Get rid of both “VP’s”

    I worked at The Tile Shop, Inc.

    Pros

    This is a good company to work for. There is a lot of opportunity to grow with this company and with high performance you can move up quickly. I started as a sales rep and moved to assistant manager within 3-4 months. I have also heard since I left assistant managers are making better money and working less hours. Great health insurance too!

    Cons

    For me the only thing was work/life balance. Which is mostly a given in retail all together but I did put in many hours to excel at the level in which I did.

    Advice to Management

    Regional Managers could be a bit more involved at the store level and get to know your Assistant Managers early on, these are the potential leaders of your company in the future.

    Pros

    Love this Company. You work hard and the Company recognizes your efforts. Company very much believes in their people and rewards you for it.

    Cons

    Finding a work life balance is challenging. But i still wouldnt change it for the world

  8. "Sales design associate"

    I have been working at The Tile Shop, Inc.

    Pros

    New experiences everyday, never boring, good training, learn daily, keeps you fit. You can learn everything about the products, installation, competitors, and reading people. They promote from within and definitely will fast track you,if want it.

    Cons

    Working Saturday and Sunday is not work life balance at all. Also naturally excludes anyone married, with children, with dependents, and candidates older than 30. Maybe that os intentional?. Sales management training needed to motivate, applaud great sales, team building desperately needed. Be that quarterback! 100% commission and "subsidy web" can be dreadful.

    Advice to Management

    Sales and design associates should only be scheduled one day per weekend. You will retain staff and make happy employees= profit,lower turnover, and great work ethic. Throw staff bone here and there;fit bit, shoe store gift card. A water cooler would be nice too!

    Pros

    Fair pair if your a top salesman. Benefits

    Cons

    99% of people work for minimum wage like earnings. Commission based job but they have you cleaning, stocking, loading customers, taking inventory etc. and not being paid for those duties. Actually hampers income, because you can't sell. Terrible work environment, have to watch your back all the time because everyone (including mgmt.) is trying ti steal your sale, Terrible work/ life balance. Always working. RUN AS... FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Salary plus commissions. Have salesmen sell, not clean or do other duties.

    Pros

    Once you are established and know what you are doing making money is easy! If you are into design and love people you might be ok.

    Cons

    LONG hours! Really no work life balance. Loads of heavy lifting. Really inconsistent paychecks. People you work with can snake your orders if you aren't careful.

    Advice to Management

    Do not make your employees feel like they are replaceable. People who feel valued are more likely to want to do more for the company.
