HR Assistant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 17, 2016
I’ve been with Unique for 3 years and have seen many pros and cons as all companies have both. I started out in a very entry level positions here and have been promoted twice with the appropriate raises given. Most jobs here are very time demanding because of our retail hours but the PTO and payed vacations are a good benefit to have. The team atmosphere, company fishing trips and being an employee owner after your first year are just a couple of reasons I am looking forward to working here for many years.
Unique Home Solutions is a very good company that is filled with integrity. The company always stands by its warranties and treats their customers properly.
I learned so much about marketing and the persuasion process while working for Unique. One of the most important skills I gained was management skills. My boss showed me how to properly manage a department so that it runs in a way that exceeds expectations.
Lead Generator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 22, 2013
This job can be fun. It was nice getting to go to different fairs and events, although the job itself is quite dull if no one shows up. If you are looking to learn basic sales skills or improve your sales techniques this is a great job for you. A very nice part time job, although there is a LOT of driving involved, which they do compensate you for. Pay was also comparable to the type of work done.
Data Entry/Events Promoter (Current Employee) – Hinckely, Ohio – February 23, 2015
Overall, not a bad position. I do not enjoy cold calling, which is essentially what you are doing, but it paid the bills. Immediate management was great. Fun and empathetic crowd. Upper management creates problems with their constant hovering and micro-management. However, the lack of consistency in the work schedule creates a poor work life balance. The use of your own cell phone, extensive use of your vehicle, and immediate use of your own money for event costs (you do get paid back...eventually) creates some well-founded frustration. However, if you are young, and are looking for a starter job, this is a very good choice to learn and develop customer service/marketing skills from professional (although a little unpolished) employers.
Quality product sold by unsupervised under trained sales reps. with most management being money hungry and undisciplined motivation for employees.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 26, 2015
Arriving to wait on either management and other co-workers to show up so we could start the day. Myself and other sales reps. would have what management called a meeting, "so they could print out destinations and find job leads for the day".. Several co-workers were very hard working and eager to make more money satisfy costumers and hope for a promotion. The hardest part of the job was knowing I made the company hundreds of thousands in revenue every month and only being paid two percent or less in commission. I do enjoy sales and working with any costumer.
Working in so many different areas and with every different kind of costumer.
poor management, being promised promotion after promotion based on my results and never getting so much as a raise.
