Horrible place to work
Sales Rep (Former Employee) –  Mohnton, PAJune 7, 2016
Company was poorly organized and run. Leads were set without conformations. Training had no structure. Work hours were on call six days a week with no notice till night before. There was no balance with work and home.

They use HomeAdvisor (Top 3 other reasons)
Sales Rep (Former Employee) –  Mohton paFebruary 24, 2015
Look into how happy a lot of people are with thoese leads. Now take 45% of that quality and give that to the Canvassars leads.

But Wait! They are going to tell you that each lead costs $450. Yet home advisor is much lower like $2-10 a lead. Thats the first clue they are lying to you.

Second way to know they are lying is that they claim each lead they send there reps on are pre-confirmed and qualified yet I would often hear about how a certain rep was being given only un-confirmed leads. Want to know why? Because the Rep (not me) was a part-time sales rep who only handled one product. They didnt like that he didnt run a different kind of lead. This is a bad sign because that means if they cant send you somewhere good they will send you Anywhere without concern. Then they do bad mouth you still if you dont sell an unconfirmed lead. Behind your back of course, because thats the kind of behavior a Family Owned business has right?

Third, the training was a waste of time. I started making more money and seeing my family more in this new Home Remodeling company then you will see with Install America have in a month. Based on what management says, the owners yell at the managers each morning because sales arent high enough.

Which now that I think about it, maybe thats why the Managers give out the bad leads, and blame the sales reps.
Pros
Youll have to research your products alone
Cons
Your lied to in the interview

They cant keep salesmen for the life of them
sales rep (Former Employee) –  Mohton, PANovember 2, 2014
If you are looking into getting a inhome sales position for home improvements, this is not where you want to start.

The training involves reading a script, and memorizing it. The trainer really doesnt know as much as you would think.

Look at Power Home Remodeling Group, they are growing much faster and have more locations because they respect there employees more. They give you 28k+ base commision, competitions for vacations, and give you a laptop.

Are you wondering what Install America offers? No base salary, less leads, no vacation competition and you have to buy your own tablet or laptop.

My case and point overall is this, they have been in business for 50+ years (Sorta), and most of the salesreps are under 1 years of working there....

Thats a red flag!! Do not devout yourself to this, use it as a resume builder and look for another job the whole time

Keep your eyes and ears open, youll hear about them laughing how they sent a rep a bad lead on purpose.

You are welcome, and I wish someone posted this before I worked there!
Pros
If you get the quality leads they say they have you can make money
Cons
lack of true leadership, respect, and barley any leads

dont bother
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  HarrisbutgJanuary 27, 2014
Typical day is sitting around to 2 o'clock to find out if you are going to be given a lead. Then driving out to lead to be told at the door, who are you and why are you here.
Pros
great commissions on jobs that process
Cons
lack of leads, absolutely no comfirmation of leads, and poor financing plans leads to thousands of miles on your car with little pay
