Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – September 27, 2014
Cakes, cookies and donuts are served as snacks throughout the day. On the weeks ends we can wear jeans and dress casual other than professional during the week. The hardest part of the job is overcoming rejections in a call center environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting bonus checks, free snacks and sometimes lunch and being around enjoyable people.
We would get there every day at about 2pm and have a meeting. After that we would head out to the field where I repeatedly produced leads for sales representatives. Hardest part of the job is being able to pick yourself back up after multiple "no's" in a row. But the most enjoyable part was when you were able to close a deal.
Sales Consultant-Window (Current Employee) – New Hampshire – March 26, 2017

Events Specialist (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – March 25, 2017
I've been an event specialist for 6 months and it's a great way to earn extra money on the weekends without giving up your WHOLE weekend. The shifts are short and you get into all the events for free! Cool people to work with in a fun environment.
Free admission to events, free food sometimes, lots of opportunities to make extra $
Proximity Marketing Executive (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 20, 2017
If you are willing to put in the work, there is certainly potential for a lot of money to be made. There are teenagers at the office who sometimes pull a grand while working part time. The catch is that it is a must that you put in maximum effort and be able to deal with the stress that comes with rejection by homeowners who do not want to speak with you.
I put 5 stars for job work/life balance because it is a part time job, unless you want to be promoted.
I put 3 stars for compensation because it is great... if you are good at the job. If you do not put in the work, you barely get any more than the base pay, which is meager.
I put 3 stars for job security because the manager will fire you if you are not performing well. At the same time, if you are working full time and performing well, there are certainly opportunities to be promoted to a management position.
I put in 2 stars for management because the only reason the managers were promoted was because they were performing well when they were canvassers. They do not have a degree in management or anything; they just pulled a lot of appointments and worked full time to show dedication to the company.
I put 4 stars for job culture because most employees are motivated individuals who want to make more money than the meager base pay. The catch is that some come from a very low socio-economic backgrounds and can be indeed sketchy
ON-SITE MARKETING AGENT (Former Employee) – Maryland Heights, MO – March 15, 2017
As an on-site marketing agent, there is a lot of pressure to set consultations (appointments) and make sure they're solid leads. However, despite the pressure, when a consultation actually went through the bonuses were absolutely wonderful. Best of all, the position offers base pay plus commission.
Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee) – Rochester, MN – March 7, 2017
I enjoy everything about working for this company - everyone works together in the true way that a team does. They have quality products with installation by reputable companies and always stand behind their guarantees. The company cares about their employees and offers many chances of success and advancement. Best job I've ever had, really.
Great Products, Good Compensation & Glorious People!
It is an easy way to make a little money, but you don't get the commission very often. You are annoying to everyone you are instructed to talk to. You have to give up your nights and weekends if you want to make any money.
FIELD REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 10, 2017
It was cool for what it was door, basically selling was. There were no benefits during the time in which I worked there. Having to go door pretty annoying, because it is unsolicited, so it's a lot of work for very little reward. Not fun for the summer time since you are outside and it is hot. Not enough pay for an adult, maybe a teen with no real responsibility.
was not (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 7, 2017
Applied to this position and actually went to the location in Monroeville/Plum Borough only to find out that the position pays $10 an hour. Even if you were to bonus at the highest levels you would still make nowhere near what they advertise.
Typical Work Day 2-3 Appointments per day (Morning, Afternoon, Evening) You have to drive to your own appointments, with no gas reimbursement, and they can be 45 to an hour away. Learned Sales techniques, and Toll-Less Routes Management Supportive Workplace Culture Varies Hardest Part Full Commission/Work Life Balance
Canvasser (Former Employee) – Glenview, IL – February 2, 2017
The hours are fine, the downfall is having to harras people to sign up for window was not my cup of tea.unfortunately the hourly pay depends on corporation of the people. I can say 20$ to 30$ an hour will not happen with an cancellation.
