Well Branded, Solid Reputation, Aggressive Marketing, Ongoing Support
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: good training environment, positive culture, opportunity to make money
Cons: long days
Typical day at work: 9am meeting in Robinson. 11am appointment, 2pm appointment, and a 6pm appointment. home around 8 - 9pm. depending on driving distance.

During my 7 years with Window world I learned a great deal of product presentation skills. I worked with a fantastic ownership and management team; they were interested in your success and invested in well thought out product and sales training. I was fortunate to work with some excellent mentors.

The hardest part of the job for me was the long day. Leaving to beat traffic to Robinson for 9:00am meetings and running 3 appointments that took about 1 hour to an hour and a half each, then getting home around 8:30pm was a constant thorn in my side. The day wasn't stressful because it was long it was stressful to balance work/life.

I believe the current situation has improved with the use of mobile tech and less required trips to the office.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the cohesiveness between employees and ownership as well as confidence in the company's ability to deliver on expectations of satisfaction to its customers. The Culture promoted healthy incentivized competition and knowledge sharing.

Small family business with tremendous growth opportunities
Production Coordinator (Former Employee), Chatsworth, CAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere, unity
Cons: small business with a lot to lose
Learned much about how businesses work because of the ability to have a more hands approach with the day to day operations. Understanding how a manager approaches the work load and to see how decisions are made gave me a greater appreciation for my superiors. The hardest part was not knowing if we would be able to sustain our business against bigger competitors. Most enjoyable part of the company is without the people who helped me become a better person.

Receptionist
Receptionist (Current Employee), Paducah, KYJune 2, 2014
On a typical work day, I take all phone calls and do customer service. I send out thank you letters and any other items that need to be mailed. I set appointments and take care of the customer. I get everything ready for the salesmen everyday and have all their paper work printed out for the following day. I file folders of previous and new customers and organize their information into the computer so its more organized to look up information as needed. Every Thursday I do payroll and make payroll sheets for the employees.

would not recommend this Company
Sales (Former Employee), Youngstown, OHMay 10, 2014
Pros: lots of appointments to go to
Cons: 6 day workweek, 9am to 9pm or longer
I made good money but bogus chargebacks constantly hit your paycheck. If you measured 10 windows and they happened to be wrong size you paid for them. This is a resulting chargeback of approx. $1,450. you only made at the most $300. If a customer decided at install that they wanted some extra work done not on the contract they would authorize it and charge me. There are no benefits this is a subcontractor position now. Management cowers to owners.

Communication breakdown between branches and progress
Laborer (Former Employee), Dallas and Houston/ TXFebruary 29, 2012
Pros: good money if the jobs are there
Cons: company seems to sketchy at times
Company driven at getting customer payments as quickly as possible. Even if that means it comes out of your check, they will get their money first and you will get yours second. Poor communication between branches and assistants, as far as job progress reports are concerned. Dallas' branch is run as well as one can expect with great supervisors and lead installer.

Jefa taller (carpintería metálica de aluminio) (Former Employee), gibraltarJanuary 11, 2015
pues el horario estupendo desde las 8:00am hasta las 17:00pm con su 15min de desayuno y su hora de almuerzo, asi todo el año, mi dia a dia era planificar el trabajo para ese dia, tanto el mio como el de los empleados, y trabajar en armonia, gracias a esta empresa aprendi lo que es la responsabilidad, profesionalidad, y el trato con el cliente y con compañeros de trabajo, soy ofial de primera en carpinteria metalica ya que llevava desde los 16 años, la parte mas dificil es cuando tenias que poner en su lugar a algun empleado porque siendo una mujer cuesta mas acerse respetar, ya que yo era la jefa de taller me tenia qie hacer de respetar, lo que ams me gusto que fue junto a mi mpadre, y fue el el que me eseño todo lo que hoy en dia se
