Pros: good benefits, gas allowance, people are great!
Cons: no life, leads are barely warm, travel everywhere, expect to be on call all day until early evenings as well, no life!!
Recently purchased by Home Depot. Thought that would change the pricing structure for the better. Has not! Product is good high quality, however, it is so over priced for what it is. I had customers cancel due to they could purchase online from Home Depot and have it installed brand new for cheaper than the Refacing Program.
Not very comforting when you are representing Home Depot and hoping that the product and program you are representing is a fair price. They offer coupons for some discounts, but pretty much is a set price. I did the math, way over priced. I got out bid all of the time when I was up against others. I had a contractor laugh at me once.
Make sure you can handle the rejection and keep up a good attitude about it, for the next call. Money is good if you can sell it.Its a "One Call Close", with the typical "9" step selling system. Strong Armed.
Also the cases you carry around are easy 55 lbs. You at times will carry in 3 of them on each appt. Make sure you can lift them all day.
The leads are not that warm. They have marketers in the stores that approach people and ask if they are home owners and strong arm them into a "Free" consultation, cause that is how they are paid.
So, the leads are sorta luke warm, at best. Depending on your area and manager, the leads are assigned to you via email and not until late the nite before. Does not give you any time to plan your life. If you wait until am to pick up leads, you might miss your appt. time if you find you have to travel to somewhere 3 hours away and be there at 10:00????
Just be aware of what I learned, if you can handle all of that, you can make a good living, but will not have a life to spend it or probably anyone around to spend it with.
