Nice environment for office in a retail mall setting
Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – April 11, 2017
Loved working with a few of the employees. Loved having the trust and freedom of designing from home. Only had to go out to meet with clients or cover the showroom one day a week. Loved the opportunity to visit many client's homes with spectacular views or secluded locations. Quality and selections of product were easy to sell.
Working from home, upper management seemed to be sincere about our thoughts and showed interest in our input, Sales were easy to make because of the reputation, quality and options of materials and designs.
(Former) manager had not done our job so she had difficulty in understanding our scope of work, Commissions were challenging to make because we didn't have control of production, stock of materials, scheduling of jobs to install or client's scheduling.
Shop worker (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – April 10, 2017
Would not recommend this company to job seekers or clients. Managers treat employees like numbers. No one in the company cares about your personal life, expect you to Dedicate your life to the company. Very hostile work environment. Employees don't care about the product and send stuff out to clients damaged. So called "Designers" are not capable of using tape measures or levels. Over all a horrible company to work for or do business with.
Showroom Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – April 3, 2017
Unfair treatment amongst employees. But most importantly, we've had far too many times where clients' would call because they got the wrong piece to their closet, installation wasn't done properly, or finished, or a no show for appointments. Wouldn't recommend to clients or individuals seeking for a job.
May not apply to all locations as they are franchised
Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – February 16, 2017
I worked out of Bellevue, WA. It was VERY difficult to build business out of the showroom because the leads went to the most seasoned 'favorites'. If you wanted to grow as a new person you had to find your own leads. Not based on territory as originally thought. You'd have to drive for an hour to see a job that may be in a trailer. No guarantee that people weren't just using you for your measurements and designs to DIY. 100% commission was terrible for at least the first year. The training was okay. If you think you're working from home... think again.
Very fun job when you start getting good leads and actually sit with people who could afford to purchase very high-priced storage spaces.
designing, seeing great houses, the sales process from start to finish
commission only, no good leads from the showroom, having to work in the showroom on saturdays
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 28, 2017
Under the franchise I was employed by I have to say was exceptional. The new company Closet Tamers I have no good experience with and do not have the faith that I had with the California Closets I worked for close to 20 years.
They taught me from the bottom and brought me with them as they grew.
Do not recommend corporate takeovers that result in the hearts of the company being eliminated!
Sales & Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 17, 2017
California Closets has a great training program. The company is the leader in the closet organizing biz. It's very high-end so the opportunities with homeowners may not be qualified, on the other hand, you're working with an well-known premier brand with integrity. With any in-home sales, there are many prospects that are just wanting a price. Must love driving.
Carpenter/Installer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – October 5, 2016
A reputable company offering competitive wages and an overall satisfactory employee package. Work environment includes residential and commercial setting. The locations are franchised so management changes per location.
Project Manager/ Design Consultant & Sales (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 25, 2016
Working with clients on a day to day basis to develop their projects is the best part of the job. The use of different materials and products give the designer a great chance to wow and impress clients along with bring the project to life.
Closet Installer (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – May 11, 2016
Typical day starts at 7, the earlier the better. Making sure your material is ready for you before you leave for the job site is vital. If you ever need assistance, the excellent management staff will be right on hand to get the correct items sent your away. The hardest part of the job is communication, as long as you and your partners are all on the same page, your days here will be quite enjoyable! Excellent staff and great quality products!
It's a pretty good place to work but there is no where else for me to go. I have advanced as far as I can.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Depew, NY – January 2, 2016
We have a lot of fun at work but I have advanced as far as I can. Looking for more benefits and advancement. Hardest part of job is I would say Mondays when everyone is coming to me with problems and I am also trying to get work done but we get through it and get the problems fixed. I have learned how to deal with all kinds of people because I have been there for 20+ years and have met a lot of people.
Interesting job that allows me to meet a lot of nice people
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) – rochester, ny – September 16, 2015
I would get to work early to prepare for the work day, Load the truck and be at my appointment on time. I learned that people skills and customer service was necessary. My management team was very professional. The co-workers were hard woring a reliable. The hardest part of the job was remembering everything i needed for each job, being that every job was different. The most enjoyable thing was my self accomplishment when the job was done and then i could go help someone else.
I am available 10 hours a day to my employees and expected to be available 24 hours a day for the owner. A once AMAZING company led by a sincere owner has unfortunately lost its way with new ownership prioritizing marketing and advertisement above the integrity of the company, product and it's relationship with its clients. The increase of work orders has toppled the capacity of the entire team from sales to manufacturing to install. With a refusal to pull back and realign and unite a once strong team of valuable employees, the company is struggling to breathe and morale is dim at best.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – June 10, 2015
I really enjoyed working here. The owner Sean is amazing and taught me a lot about owning a business and life in general. When business was good I was very busy which I enjoyed. Hardest part was being laid off and having to leave.
Exciting place to work, with lots of great clients
