Every day at the Tile Shop is different. You never know who is going to walk through the door. Everyday you are faced with obtaining new clients, maintaining the ones you have, dealing with contractors and designers. I learned a lot about the different types of tile, different setting materials and uses, tools, sealers, and how to design with tile . The management was excellent. Always on top of every aspect, willing to teach until you get it, pushing you to do your best but making you feel like you're not alone, willing to help close a sale if need be. Basically very helpful and caring. My co-workers were great, fun to work with, willing to teach. The hardest part of my job was the 100% Commission pay scale. I kind of felt like a car salesman at times. Also, learning the computer system and all the product. I really enjoyed talking with clients and helping them come up with a design that they loved.
Benefits, great atmosphere, great management, make as much as you want, room to move up in the company.
Half hr. lunch/dinner, 100% Commission is hard.
