Not enough leads and hiring more....
Sales (Former Employee) – Florida – October 10, 2017
Not enough leads to keep current sales people busy, but adding more monthly.
Turn over is very high. Management burns through people.
If you can’t go without pay for up to 60 days do not join this company.
Mgmt gives leads to the closers, when you’re new, it’s hard to gain momentum without making sufficient calls. If you aren’t making one call closes, you won’t get leads.
You are a 1099 employee. Straight commission. No benefits, no guarantees. Draw is only available once you’ve sold and got orders in house.
Schedules are posted the night before. You might have three, you might have none. You can’t plan anything because you’re in limbo til early evening waiting to see if you’re being ‘given’ a chance to earn money the next day.
Leads are handed out without regard to location. There can be a lead in your immediate area, doesn't mean you’ll get it. Some reps drive up to 1.5 hours to see a customer in your area while you sit.
Training quality depends on who does it. If you’re not somewhat knowledgeable about flooring, be prepared to figure a lot of it out on your own.
Great products. Interesting meeting homeowner, Great potential with better management of people & leads, corp support staff is very nice and helpful.
Scheduling is last minute and erratic, Stop hiring until you have your current sales people working, if you want to get rid of a sales person, tell them instead of starving them out by not giving leads to them.
