Great income for Interior Designers!
Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – May 18, 2019
I loved working for this company! I worked as a Designer, a Project Manager and a Design Center Manager. The income was excellent, and the training was amazing. Weekly meetings to stay on top of product knowledge, industry trends, and customer service and operations. You handle the client interface from greeting to installation and styling. You also get a lot of support from Project Managers, Operations team, Delivery team and co-workers. I had my own company prior to working here, and I enjoyed designing at Ethan Allen much more. With my own company, I spent too much time on invoicing, tracking orders, receiving and coordinating deliveries. At Ethan Allen, my focus was on the client, the design, the creativity and the details. To really maximize my income, I layered the design with rugs, window coverings, drapery, bedding and wall coverings. It was so much fun to create custom bedding for my clients. A lot of creativity collaboration. Every day I was inspired by my co-workers, and they supported me and my creative designs.
Very lucrative income for designers, paid on sales versus delivery, great commission rates, Creative autonomy, good coaching and support, company reacts well to industry and economic trends
Commissioned income can have high and low periods, cannot sell products from other manufacturers, work most weekends
