The Home Depot - Don't Take a Job in Refacing Unless
Sales in Refacing
PHILLY REGION, PENNSYLVANIA -- I started working for Home Depot in Oct with three other two of which were smarter than me and quit before training was over. Basically 998 out of 1000 appointments that reps go on are people that have no interest in refacing their kitchen they were in buying something else and a lead generator pressures them into taking an appointment. The problems with this are many 1 you must be a high pressure sales person in order to convince someone to spend 12,000 -20,000 on prefacing 2. You must be willing to spend 40.00 a day and travel as much as 300 miles to do this and drive an hour to each appoint. Must be willing to make that commitment and realize that some won't even answer the door because they really didn't want the appointment. Be ready to make this hour drive for an appt at 8pm if you get in the door an appt is a minimum of 2 hours. You will have many bank turndowns for the financing of the kitchen. Also be ready for 1 of every three sales will cancel the next day. Most of all Home Depot runs this like amateurs. Not only supplying you with completely inadequate train two weeks at an average of 3 hours a day. You will be asked to sell thinks from a book such as back splash and in the end we were give a black and white sheet of paper that the customer had to use to pick out hardware with because there was not enough new hardware ordered how embarrassing is it to work for an 90 billion dollar company and people have to pick out hardware for their 15,000 kitchen from a black and white piece of paper. Last but not least you will never get paid correctly because of your lack of training you will make mistakes that will be deducted from your check you will find this out when you get it because there is ZERO communication between the measure people and your sales manager. Home Depot has no regard for you personally and they will run you into the ground if you let them. They could care less about the quality of the lead because it doesn't cost them anything to send you there. The lead generators will say what ever they have to get the lead even if it’s not true.
