A very stressful job with a huge turnover of emoloyees
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  All over the placeApril 8, 2018
Very stressful job with very Hi pressure out on you to close sales You are run all over the place with zero consideration to where you live versus where your appointments take place The company does road shows for Costco where your made to stand alot of hours The owner deliberately holds back commissions and pays them when his cash flow is good They truly don't care about there employees and have a huge turnover and since there always short handed you have to drive hundreds of miles a week all over the place in n j and including Staten island And sales meetings where your ridiculed if you don't close your sales And there prices are very expensive and your pushed to close sales at all costs by lowering the price of a sale which means virtually giving away your commissions This place is a definite stay away
Pros
Company vehicle
Cons
Terrible hours

The car sales of carpet and flooring
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Manasquan, NJMarch 16, 2018
Stay away. Unless you like being pressured to pressure people, hawk people in wawa parking lots, work 12 hours a day. They make you memorize a magic "speech" that will simply make customers sign right then & there. At bi-weekly sales meetings the owner ridicules those who didnt close 70% of the week's sales in front of 40 to 60 fellow employees.
Pros
None
Cons
Immense pressure to pressure customers to BUY RIGHT NOW!

A job you enjoy going to each day
Graphic Designer / Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Manasquan, NJFebruary 11, 2015
SMART Carpet is not only a great place to work, but it is place that I personally enjoy coming to each and every day. Some companies say that they work in a "team" environment, but SMART Carpet actually lives up to that. Everyone is working toward common goals and we are constantly working to better both ourselves and the company as a whole.

Not the best job experience
Sales Rep (Current Employee) –  Wall NJMay 14, 2014
I personally feel like I was misled. The example of pay that was shown to me was from the top sales rep in the company. I was not informed that to achieve success, that I would have to bring in most of my own business. Great job for someone who has no real responsibilities and can afford the many months of low income.
Pros
Able to use van for personal use
Cons
misleading income
