    I have been working at The Sliding Door Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company on the rise! Open to positive change! I never once felt that management / ownership did not care about me or my family. Open door policy. Owner knows everyones name and goes out of his way to show that he is indeed interested in how you and your family are doing. Sales manager is extremely supportive and understanding. Support staff is constantly improving.

    Cons

    Commission structure could be better. You have to work Saturdays.

    Pros

    Really great people to work with. Managers do not micromanage and let you sell independently.

    Meeting sales goals can be stressful, sometimes have to put in long hours.

    I have been working at The Sliding Door Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Been around for a while, a lot of showrooms. They have a GREAT product that is beautiful and well made.

    Cons

    Unorganized, shifty, unstable. I would not recommend that a friend come work here. Low paying job that will never give you a raise. They are hiring people, yet letting other people go at the same time. Constantly making changes.

    I worked at The Sliding Door Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great accounting dept. And operations

    Cons

    Managers will not give you the proper tools to succeed. The owner will talk behind your back once you leave and blame you when you made him a lot of money. They need a new sales director to help with sales department

    Advice to Management

    When someone leaves it's not the employee's fault this company has a lot of turn around I would look at management and ownership now. I love my job there but realized it's untrustworthy upper management

    Pros

    You get out what you put in. Management gives you the right tools to succeed. Fun, family like atmosphere. There is room for growth and this is a growing industry with no signs of slowing down. Very competitive pay.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve. Not everyone can walk in and "get it". You have to be technical and personable.
