Rude, poor Co./employer
Area Marketing Rep (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 28, 2017
They would not communicate with you and just stopped employing no explanation, reason, etc. Rude!! They are evasive and give you the run around, anything to make it tough on the employee.

Bad Management
Product Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 8, 2017
The team lead had no clue how to run a remodel, half the time we would be standing around doing nothing, for the first couple of weeks if you weren't part of the travel team and asked the lead anything he would look at you like you weren't there and tell your lead the answer to your question.

Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 30, 2017
I liked the work and they compensate their employees very well. I just got an offer to work in the technology field, which is what I was going to school for and I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
Pros
Lots of travel, good pay and benefits.
Cons
You have to share a hotel room with someone else. You're away from your family a lot.

Project Managers were great to work with !
Lead Foreman - Construction Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 3, 2017
They give you unskilled help that's new every store and has to be trained again. They have found a loophole in the health care requirement laws and don't give health care benefits until you've worked 12 months and a minimum required hours in that time, and that's no way to treat your employees !! They start you out at a low pay rate and promise regular reviews for pay raises that never happen. There is no bonus program or incentive pay for quality employees. It could be a great company to work for but sadly they aren't at this time.

Started good, but declined quickly
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJune 27, 2017
When i first started, everything was good, good pay, nice environment, chill coworkers. 1st couple jobs were cool. But then it went downhill when i met some lazy, incompetent (only there to socialize & not work) employees and foremans. Then it got worse from there. When i completed my last job, i went home. I waited and waited for work. Called multiple times to corporate. They would constantly say something is coming up in a week. But come the time, I'd call, and they'd say its delayed, or not starting. So rinse and repeat. I'd constantly see jobs and openings on indeed every week, but they'd tell me its slow or nothing around me, (lies). So i ended up having to get a different job. Horrible upper management .
Pros
Good compensation, Travel pay, per dium.
Cons
Low amount of work, bad upper management, unorganized.

Great place to work if you love to travel. Management is very unorganized and changes frequently. There is absolutely no training but you are expected to know everything.

flexible independent work
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) –  NJMay 4, 2017
The hours are extremely flexible and pay is decent in comparison to other companies. There is no room for growth. You are not micro-managed by your direct manager which is nice.
Pros
Flexible hours, decent pay, independent work
Cons
No opportunity for growth

Great place to work
FIELD MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 26, 2017
Heavy travel from home. Wages are good and work is plentiful if you have experience. Must be willing to put some home life aside. Most work is fixtures and signage but they do some remodels.

Not a career job
Lead Product Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 21, 2016
The compensation is great but the time spent away from home makes you question if the compensation is worth it. Part time employees can go months, even years without work,
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Always on the road working or long periods of time without work
