Senior Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) –  MarylandSeptember 17, 2018
Workplace culture at Power Home is unlike most professional settings. There is so much room for career advancement and innovation in every position throughout the organization. Upper management is open to new concepts and challenges that will drive the business forward. If you have a new idea, it is encouraged to bring it to the table. Power's culture allows you to self reflect on personal and professional growth. Outside of work initiatives to promote teamwork. Everyone is encouraged to having a voice in their communities. The work place brings culture through team outings, leadership conferences, sports leagues, and open bars, and holiday trips. Getting involved in the community is also highly encouraged. The company promotes the concept of being a part of something bigger than yourself.
Pros
Leadership conferences, community service initiatives, cultural and inclusion summits, innovation

Fun culture, hard work
Remodeling Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJanuary 21, 2019
Power's culture is unrivaled. The most enjoyable part for me, other than the culture, were all the different homeowners I met along the way. Power is truly offering a better home improvement experience in an industry riddled with complaints. The products and services are superior, and I could really believe in what I was selling. If you love sales, you need not have any experience in the home improvement industry to succeed at Power.

The training is absolutely unmatched. Power is the type of company where if you can just do a trust fall into absolutely everything about the company, you will succeed if you work hard, believe in yourself, and believe in the product and the mission of the company.

Every company has politics, and Power is no exception. That is one con, as well as the schedule being tough. There were times I missed out on important things. It's a job where one can get burnt out quickly, and you need a lot of grit and mental fortitude. But overall, I feel the positives outweigh the cons.
Pros
Strong positive culture, wonderful benefits, opportunity to travel, compensation for performance
Cons
Work/life balance, grueling schedule

Not a great place to make software
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chester, PANovember 28, 2018
Management lacks technical experience but forces technical decisions onto the team. Engineers barred from fixing fundamental, productivity-destroying engineering problems. Example: hope you enjoy 2+ hours for test suite runs in CI every time you change a single line of code, because nobody is allowed to fix this -- you should be pushing out new features and chasing silly projects management dreamed up instead. Accomplishing anything here is much, much harder than it needs to be.

Frustratingly, I was also barred from pursuing any sort of training or personal development (conferences, etc) during work hours. The expectation is that you will work 50-60 hour weeks and then do these things on your own time. Could be a good fit for you if you're 20, have no life, and don't mind sleeping four hours a night.

(Some engineers were allowed these luxuries, so your experience may vary. Management of course spent lots of times at conferences...)

Outside of these departmental issues it's a cool and positive company in general. They are growing and will continue to grow and be profitable for the forseeable future.
Pros
Profitable, growing company
Cons
Extremely poor engineering culture

Just take the second interview and thank them for their time
Remodling Consultant (Former Employee) –  Iselin, NJAugust 8, 2018
By far one of the worst employment experiences in my life. Management is unprofessional and immature. Everything about this company is get the yes. Marketing lies to gets sales in the door, sales lies about severity of project to close the sale. You will be on call 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 8am-2pm on Saturday. They advertise 2 appointments a day however due to Do Not Call lists there has been a downturn in prospective clients. less then 5%of staff make 100k and company has extremely high turnover rate despite a RVP claiming that they retain over 98% of all employees.

Overall if you have a pulse, dont mind driving 2 plus hours to do a high pressure in home sales pitch, and poor work life balance then this is the job for you.
Pros
Company parties
Cons
No future for employees unless you learn how to lie

Finally, the staggering growth of the company provides multiple positions and opportunities across the country.

Worked in a young fun work environment but long hours and over worked. There is no work life balance in marketing.
Marketing Mentor (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMay 17, 2018
A typical day at work was training individuals to advance them in there career along with going door to door to generated leads and get sales reps into the house. The culture was young fun and very enjoyable. The management lets you have no say and was very micromanaged. The hardest part of the job was the work life balance. The most enjoyable part is working outside and outside of an office setting.
Pros
working with young motivated individuals
Cons
no work life balance

Amazing culture!
Home Remodeling Consultant (Former Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDAugust 12, 2018
Working at Power was an amazing experience. The culture there is by far the most supportive and motivating to be found anywhere. The ongoing training and structured support /training groups are a big reason for their success. Management is always there for you when you need them and they celebrate their successes with their employees. The days are long and the commission only aspect of the job is enough to challenge most. However, if you have the drive to succeed, the rewards are amazing and well worth the hard work.
Pros
Great income potential, Great support structure
Cons
commission only, seasonal business

Inside Sales/Customer Care Agent (Current Employee) –  Chester, PAAugust 26, 2018
It's sort of like working for Google but without the free food everyday Google provides for it's employees. Micro management doesn't exist here. Cut throat atmosphere isn't part of POWER'S culture; it's the opposite, they only want everyone to succeed in whatever capacity you're involved in. You get what you get based on your goals and achievements that you put forth. If you want to step into management there's no one standing in your way, current management helps you succeed and will do anything to help you move forward.
Pros
No micro management
Cons
Shift work

Fast Growing and Great Company!
Remodeling Consultant (Former Employee) –  Riverview, FLJanuary 20, 2019
Power is a train that should be jumped on because it isn't stopping. It will be a household name in the next 5 years. Great culture for young adults. The CEOs are rockstars. Their company montra is "relentlessly dedicated to improvement" and thats exactly what they do every year. Management, from regional to the Executives, are incredible. They care about their employees and are willing to cut profits for their wellbeing.

The remodeling consultant job can be stressful. It requires longer hours if you want to be successful. You are always on the clock and drive to your own appointments. Gas is not reimbursed. Also, you have to carry a very expensive auto insurance policy. However, the job rewards its reps with fair compensation and amazing events of all size. Opportunities for leadership positions outweighs this too.

The best part about the company is the people. Power employees are chosen based on their personality and genuinity, rather than their degrees or prior work experience. Therefore, you have an office filled with charismatic and enthusiastic people. It really becomes a family atmosphere. The company is doing a great job with women and diversity initiatives as well.

If you're tired of a 9-5 or low paying work place and feel like you're a naturally enthusiastic person, just apply. You may be suprised when you go to the interview.
Pros
Great company., Great coworkers, Good compensation, Leadership roles/promotions constantly opening up, clear expectations, Amazing company held events, Focus of interpersonal development, Mentors teams for development, One big family
Cons
Late hours, Always on call (except sundays), Sky high auto insurance rates, Gas not reimbersed, Little work life balance

Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDSeptember 17, 2018
The work at Power Home Remodeling is hard but everything is done as a team. Incredibly supportive leadership at Power and the ceiling is where you make it as far as career advancement. Mentors in the business seek you out if you are struggling and make sure you find the help that you need to ensure your success.
Pros
Leadership, benefits and pay structure, career advancement

Remodeling Consultant (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 27, 2018
I have worked for numerous big name companies who failed to invest in their employees. Power focuses on each individual employee to insure that they are receiving the proper training and guidance. By far the best company I have ever worked for.

Fun Workplace Where Consistent Hardwork Brings Rewards
Inside Sales Rep (Current Employee) –  Chester, PAMay 22, 2018
I enjoy working a normal 40-44 hour work week and making a comfortable living for myself. My coworkers are also my friends and we are mostly competitive people that live a "work hard, play hard" lifestyle. In a performance driven department, my success is determined by consistent effort in my role as an Inside Sales agent. While there is a steep learning curve in my role, management provides all the tools and training to get me to the level I want to be at.
Pros
Fun, Likeminded coworkers
Cons
Reduced pay when vacation is taken

Great Place to Learn
Remodeling Consultant (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 14, 2019
The job allows a lot of free time, as you only need to work when you have an appointment. I learned tons of amazing techniques and strategies on how to over come objections and get the sell. Management was new in the beginning and had some learning curves, but learned quickly and has gotten better and better with time. The hardest part of the job is that you are paid commission only, which is scary at first, but very rewarding. The most enjoyable part of the job is the time you get between appointments to have your own time to do whatever you want with. There are lots of events and other things the company does for you throughout the year, but the downtime was by far my favorite part.
Pros
great earning potential, great place for veterans, good people to work with
Cons
commission only, a bit of favoritism in the office

Great Company, Poor Work
Marketer (Current Employee) –  Centennial, CODecember 31, 2018
Power as a company is extremely ethical and generous to their employees. The work culture is amazing and so is the management. Everyone is happy to help you succeed in any way possible, or just hear you out if you need to talk.

However, you work 45 hours a week, every other week. Most days you will get off work at 6:30 or 7, not 6. And most of all, the actual work sucks big time. You'll get hired on for sales, only to realize you get stuck doing door-to-door marketing for an undetermined amount of time. Everyone has to do it. It is degrading, rude, and not a job to be proud of. You will be outside in 20 degree weather while it's frigidly cold, windy, and dark, trying to knock on doors. You'll set tons of appointments only to realize that almost none of them demo, meaning you make no money. Retail marketing isn't any better. You stand in a Sam's Club for 8 hours trying to stop people with no display or any visual representation of who the company is. There's still job postings for sales up on indeed, but right now sales is almost full, and there are people who have worked there for a year and are just now getting into sales.

It's weird that the company is so awesome.. yet, I haven't been this depressed at work in years, and I've had some pretty unfortunate jobs in my life.
Pros
long breaks, great company, ethical
Cons
door to door, scripting, working conditions, hours, schedule, misleading, mentally and physically taxing

Mindless followers!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MIMay 4, 2018
Anyone with real home improvement knowledge are looked down upon. Only way to get ahead is to drink the kool-aid and not ask questions!!! OPS RVP constantly lied not only to staff but also to the contractors. Promising money incentives to contractors that he had no intention of ever paying, just to get jobs done. Ignoring people on jobs that should not be done or on temporary fixes just to get paid.
Pros
Money is good if your not salary!
Cons
No family life, work long hours not paid for, advancement depends on how well you can throw others under the bus.

Young, Fun, Rewarding yet Challenging Company
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Southfield, MIJanuary 2, 2019
Power is a great company to work for and would recommend it to most people without a second thought. The pay is outstanding, yet commission based so you have to earn it. Day to day grind of the job can get mundane but the people you get to work with and the events/programs the company provides are outstanding. Management is hand selected through performance and personality and Power only promotes from within. Hardest part of the job is the fact you're doing a basic entry level task but the best part is the people you get to work with and the money you can potentially make.

Bad Experience Overall
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 24, 2018
Started out learning scripts and did very well within the first 3 months which allowed me to generate hundreds of thousands of sales leads for the company. Thereafter my performance didn't reflect my pay which I felt uncompensated for my energy investment. Was terminated 1 day before my 1 year anniversary on the job due to performance, although the system in which we were rewarded was completely controlled within the company with minimal transparency. Disappointed to be treated in such a manner after investing an entire year to the company, especially missing out on 401k after 1 year of employment .
Pros
ability to increase people skills, public relations, and speaking skills
Cons
Empty promises

Great place to work if you have a sales mentality
Outbound Marketer (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILJuly 13, 2018
The days were long, even though they started late. the morning meeting was at 10am, but the office is in Rosemont, which is a big commute for some, and then we met with our groups and traveled out to our designated areas for the day. The company was good at motivation and pep, and you couldn't ask for nicer managers and staff, however the whole company seemed so numbers based, strictly a turnout based production of appointments, and it never really seemed all that fruitful of work to me, however if you made good appointments and had a lot of estimates, the money was definitely there.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the yearly trip to mexico, but the hardest part was the day to day work, constantly out in sweltering heat and frigid cold, with sometimes no one around for miles to pick you up if you need to use the bathroom, which is a huge inconvenience.
The workplace culture was great, everyone always trying to help everyone else out, but the turnover rate for employees was so high you didn't see many people stay for a long time.
Pros
decent pay (great commission), mostly great people, outside
Cons
Very long days, long travel, little work/life balance, outside

Incredible culture and endless opportunities
Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDFebruary 21, 2018
It's amazing to be able to work at a company where however hard you work, is how well you are compensated. While most sales driven companies are very competitive and cut throat, Power is supportive and people thrive in a team environment. You are given meticulous training and mentorship no matter how long you exist in the company to continue to give opportunities for growth.

Hard work not only pays forward in income potential, but also in amazing sales promotions that frequently take place.

With such a growing company, there are plenty of opportunities to get promoted in title and job or even create your own job.

If you aren't disciplined and don't enjoy working hard, this may not be the place for you. Otherwise, the sky is the limit for you with Power.
Pros
Compensation, recognition, and support
Cons
Requires hard work

The Perception and promise of everything, the receipt of absolutely nothing
Marketer (Former Employee) –  MDDecember 20, 2018
Training is intense and their expectations are ridiculously high for even within the first month.

You start as a marketer and knock on doors in a given territory, day or night, in all seasons, and in all weather. You maintain standards and possibly make it to sales. They want to know all of your financial information and display people's paychecks regularly. You’ll make 500 a week without hitting any bonuses.

So much scripting and conversations never follow the script in real life. “mentor” program is essentially 2 weeks of memorizing script, lots of role playing, then dropping you off in a neighborhood to fall flat on your face until you succeed or quit.

They do not acknowledge your growth or improvement unless you shine above everyone else.

You’ll walk for 10 miles a day, get doors slammed in your face, get drenched in rain, freezing in the cold, walk in soggy feet and shoes, get yelled at by prospects, cops, and management, get chased by dogs, and question your existence all in the same day.

The best part is bonding with the people that go through it with you.
Pros
Friends you make
Cons
Everything else
