    Top Notch Company

    Pros

    Thompson Creek has the highest quality products which makes me proud to represent them. They are not just a broker but rather design, manufacture, install, and warranty all of their own windows. The buck stops with us. I've worked for quite a few companies and none have invested in their training like Thompson Creek. Tim Shanty is an incredible trainer and they will give you ample time to get up to speed on their products, sales process, and the industry as a whole. So much so, since training I've seen immediate success because of the comfort level I was able to achieve from Tim's training. Plus, there is no cold calling. We are provided the leads from a very robust marketing department.

    Cons

    The schedule is taking some time for me to get used to because I'm used to a regular 9 to 5 gig. Think realtor and you will understand how the schedule works. Lots of free time but you need to be available when the clients are available so expect to work weekends and week nights when needed. This is not a con for me because I was informed on what to expect, but it's just something different I need to get used to.

    Great Sales Training

    Pros

    Tim Shanty is a one of a kind trainer. He truly cares about the people in his class - even those that aren't a perfect fit. Basically, he is a stand-up guy.

    Cons

    High-pressure sales is not for everyone. You are expected to drive for hours in your own car and close the deal on the first sitting.

    Incredible Opportunity!

    Pros

    Outstanding company maintains high level of standards, dedicated to providing only superior products and services to meet the needs of their customers! Most engaging and relevant training program I've ever experienced! Tim Shanty does a fantastic job investing knowledge in the trainees and preparing them for success! The training program is extremely thorough and provides new sales reps with all the tools and support they will need! Appointments are pre-set. Call center works tirelessly to schedule solid appointments for sales reps in efforts to make their time in the field valuable and meaningful. Managers are unbelievably supportive and accessible, providing a constant flow of applicable feedback. A true team environment where every member is a valued and integral piece of the puzzle!

    Cons

    Sales reps will do some serious driving and work long hours, but this is offset by being given real appointments with sincerely interested customers. The investment of time and effort is absolutely worthwhile!

    Pros

    Home Office is AMAZING!!! with a top-notch training program. Rick is an amazing owner who cares about his company

    Cons

    BUT... Rick is not in the field offices and those are run very differently than what training in Maryland tells you they will be. Interviewing and Training is done of out of the Home Office in Maryland. If you are not going to work in Maryland, what you are told on your interview may not be accurate. You work REALLY Hard at this company - FIVE DAYS A WEEK, your two days off are NOT Weekends and may not even be two days in a row. You are expected to memorize scripts and say them verbatim when called one (The Managers are not expected to do the same - it is a "Do as I say, not as I do environment") You will do A LOT of driving and work 10-12 hour days (with traveling) Pay is o.k. You WILL make a lot of money, but compared to competitors for this type of work, it could be improved. As with any sales job, there is a "pecking order" on who gets the sales appointments, it helps if you have friends/family who will buy from you in the beginning. Some field offices are much better than others - INSIST on talking/interviewing with someone in the field office you will be working at.
