    Pros

    You will reap what you sow. If you put in the time and effort to study their sales methods and know them inside and out you will succeed.

    There are ups and downs but once you learn the material and knowledge base you will do great.

    If you can recite/answer confidently anything a customer could bring up, just as easily as you could spell your name if someone asked you to, you'll hit your goals and get paid very well.

    Cons

    Some long drives here and there but nothing too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing

    I worked at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to do what you want in between meetings, peers are helpful

    Cons

    Commission isnt what it used to be, and you need to fight for your payment tier and self generated leads which they tend to try and claim as their own

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they usually do what they are supposed to do

    I worked at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the overtime pay was the best part of the job - this job would be best for a stepping stone career - you can see what the internal operations of what a company should not do..

    Cons

    you can only give positive feedback on anything - you were never allowed to say or give any negative advice - it is frowned upon. A lot of hypocrisy in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat each employee the same, favoritism shows tremendously. Training is also very much needed in all areas.
