    I have been working at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an outside sales representative, you have the benefit of selling some of the best products on the market. It's a lot more fulfilling to sell someone a product that will actually benefit them at a premium price, than selling them something worthless and making it sound better than it is. When you do your job right, there is the potential for hefty commission checks; however, you need to realistically expect that there may be slumps when you close little to no sales in a week. Mental fortitude and positivity are key. You'll be supported on a salary until you're ready to be trained on high value project sales.

    Cons

    Long hours. You will likely work 12 ~ 14 hour days regularly, these days can feel particularly rough if you close no sales during that timeframe. The average appointment with a homeowner will be about 45mins to 1 hour. If you make a sale, the entire appointment may take as long as 1.5 ~ 2 hours, assuming you are pacing yourself correctly. Thus, most of this 12 ~ 14 hour day will consist of traveling between locations, or occupying your time creatively.

    Advice to Management

    Great management staff. Very supportive. As far as commission goes, it may be worth exploring a small salary to support reps during rough months.

    I worked at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, Flexible hours, Great company events, Staff is great

    Cons

    Departments do not work together and appear to be in competition. Problems take many e-mails to many different people before they are solved. Processes are not completely efficient. Needs updates in technology

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees and the problems that they bring forward and take them into consideration. The people are who drive the business and should be considered one of the most important aspects. Employee turn around will then improve.

    I have been working at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you'd like high quality leads for a fantastic product line, then this is the place. At my past job I felt like my own install manager. Here a professional team make sure it gets done right.

    It's a real family atmosphere too. We work hard but play hard too. The company is growing and promotes from within. The care about their staff and customers.

    Cons

    As a growing company, there are growing pains. The IT backend appears fragile at best, and seems to be held together by some very competent staff. It needs to be fixed before any large expansion. A work life balance for outside sales needs to be found, such as rotationing weekends etc.

    The training is great, but sometimes it seems like just filling time.

    Advice to Management

    We need one more of you and they should be a non training person. Just administrative.

    I have been working at Thompson Creek Window Co. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my time here I have seen incredible growth. It can be a very fun place to work with a lot of inside and outside activities and contests available. The company is very diverse and everyone gets along great. There is ample opportunity for growth within the company as well. Additionally the company is big on providing training to help one with their career.

    Cons

    Sometimes things can feel too corporate which is probably par for the course as a company gets bigger. Like any company some in management play on favoritism over fairness.
