Productive work place with people that were enjoyable to work with and knew what was supposed to be done
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – February 21, 2018
I enjoyed working there, everything that was need to be done was easily comprehendible. If there were problems there was a great support team to help get around the problem. There were many chances for advancements as well.
Lunch, break time and flexible
Sometime short staff with big trucks needing to be loaded and unloaded
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 7, 2018
the job was fun people were fun to work with but its all commission you do get a base however if you done make your base pay during your pay period you get paid how ever if you make money the following pay period you a minused the money you needed to get to the base period from last time
Earnings are entirely capped by the store traffic which you have no control over so you end up going after the few customers that do walk in. Some people eat, others starve.
Very little ongoing training besides initial hire YouTube videos. This is the only sales job that I have that does not after a training program.
Unfortunate the showroom and selection is industry leading. Had there been more customers coming in, I would have loved the job because I loved the work. I had consistent 5 star ratings from my customers.
Interior Designer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 30, 2018
Some days are very slow while others can go by very quickly when your involved in a project. While the design aspect of the job is very enjoyable, the cut throat environment is stressful. The culture there felt very sneaky. The hardest part of the job was the demands by the manager to hit goals weekly that at times were impossible without being deceptive to the customer. What I loved most was the design aspect of the job. Helping customers to see the potential in their spaces and making it a reality.
Horrible job if you’re applying for a sales job you will only be selling 25% of your time the rest of the time you’ll be moving tiles working in the warehouse also training to operate a forklift and cleaning . And you will be making $12 an hour and you will feel like you’ve been ran over by a truck when you get off work
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – January 3, 2018
I worked at Tile Shop for over 3 years. I had a new manager every year. When I advanced to assistant manager, i expected a pay raise, instead I was doing the work of the manager, while still trying to make my sales. Not a good place to work.
Sales and Design (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – January 2, 2018
Over all I enjoyed my time at this facility. the work was enjoyable but the competitiveness of the work created a stressful environment. It also divided employees and drove many to arguments. the ability to network with contractors was wonderful considering my degree in Interior Design.
lunch breaks, networking
poor team leadership, competitivness created a stressfull enviroment.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Buford, GA – December 21, 2017
Run from this company. Its a bunch of crooks that could care less. I was there and signed up for benefits that never materalized but they did take Three insurance policies out on me that the benificiary would have been the Company!! Horrible Psychotic Store manager and District area manager full of Ego! Bunch of lying evil people.. of course Store managers make 70 grand a year by stealing and firing people so they can get the consultants and associates sales! If your not there all the time other people steal your sales. You have to pay for shirts and business cards.. listen to the negative feedback because we are telling the Truth. Again Run from this company.
At times you are your own boss and you are able to decide how much you make at the end of each month. You work as a team as well on your own. You can let the creativeness in you come out while working with customers. There are a lot of ways to advance your career as well in house. I'd highly recommend if your looking for a job where there is low risk and high reward come work at the tile shop.
