He hired friends to work the phone. They wouldn't answer the phone so it got hard to pay the bills and I had to go elsewhere to make money. It gets aggravating when you have jobs and can't do them cause the lady that answered the phone didn't schedule them right
I thought Stanley Steemer was an okay place yo work. The manger was good and fair. The franchise owners were fine. They didn't care about there employees lives outside of the workplace. It is common to have another call put on you after working a 12 hour day or being called to come in on your day off. Also it is commission based, which can be tough in a small community like Sebring. A lot of the time there werent enough calls to fill the day. This was especially true during the summer. The part of the job that I liked the most was the satisfaction of seeing a dirty carpet become clean and having the customer be happy.
productive workplace in a non stressful environment

I loved working at Stanley Steemer. it was by far one of my favorite places to work I made a lot of money there made some great friends and the work was enjoyable. Driving with a pal to each new house and meeting the customers was always so great for me. I would and have recommended this work to many many people.
Not stuck in one place all day, work with your body discounts on cleans

Can be fast paced and also stressful when it comes to sales they will start you off hourly til you feel like you can go to commission but paychecks will never be the same due to being a commission based job
stanley steemer is a great place to work, you just don't have much time in the day for other activities.

It's hard work working for stanley steemers but it was something I like ddoing, i say if you dont sweat tour not working on average it's a great company and if i didn't need to make more money i will work for them again.
Although the pay is good the work environment isnt there isnt any communication between the technicians and the dispatchers when it comes to deal with customer complaints and the hours are extremely long. However overall it was a good job

you would clock in at 7am you work throughout the day sometimes getting lunches very late and wouldnt when you be get off work and hardly would be able to plan a day after work to spend time with the family. my last manager i had wouldnt be flexible as other previous managers i had like if you had any family emergency. he wouldnt know how to talk to his employees. very disrepecful.

A typical day at work can be sometimes long and strenuous. Overall the management is ok, but upper management can be a little more visible and rewarding towards their employees. The workplace's atmosphere is pretty laid back. The hardest part of the job is not being equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to do my job effectively. The most rewarding and enjoyable part of the job is satisfying clients.
