The Truth

EmployeeWorked in Distribution/sales at Power Home Remodeling Group in Chester, PA at the time of review.

What I like

There are some really good genuine people that get hired at power I would like to see more of them stay!!!!

What I dislike

They work people and push people to the point of wanting to give up. Then attempt to get them re bought in quarterly it’s not because they care for them it’s because they want them to keep working harder and harder and harde.

Suggestions for improvement

Cut back on the CULT structure Cut back on event spending and Start paying the employees who have proven they can consistently earn millions for the company a salary plus commission pay structure!!!!

Company Culture

Everyone drinks the cool aid the first 6months to a year then reality sets in.
Power works really hard at keeping employees in the power bubble. They want Your friends significant others to join. If they can make your life revolve around power they got you hook line and sinker.

Company Image

They work hard at their public persona
They say what’s your public brand

Work-Life Balance

Power strongly encourages employees to make power their life. Daily events strongly urging you to bring your spouse and friends so that they can attempt to recruit them into the company. If you do not attend you are ostracized.

Career Development

Plenty of training and you will get a fancy title senior sales rep = sale for more the a year FYI No pay raise ... Mentor = you are now responsible for 5 other employees sales out put and you are paid only if they achieve lofty sales goals. Not guaranteed paid commission only !

Handicapped Accessibility

Again of course power supports handicapped persons. How many likes did that get.

Overall compensation for your work

Sell or you don’t get paid !!!! You are required to earn the company 1.5 million annually or your not very good and you will find your job getting harder and harder until you are pushed out. Then they hire someone new to saddle up and dangle the carrot in front of.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company pushes this to the fullest extent..... Its motivation is public and social expectance. Not very genuine if your encouraging your employees to spread on social media how inclusive of a company POWER is.

Environmental Friendliness

Everyone puts on the power show while inside the power walls if you look closer you can see how disingenuous most everyone really is. Friendliness is forced it becomes a compilation or requirement if you don’t smile, say hello or hold a door your not nice and not a power person.

Teamwork

Team work is driven by sales numbers.
You are paid 100% commissions only and bonus is structured so that only the elite can bonus. Leadership is structured so that you only get paid if your team produces elite sale numbers.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This is where it gets tricky Power wouldn’t want to publicly come across as a company that doesn’t support or hire older employees
But the truth is power wants Millennials preferably fresh out of college so they can get them hooked on the Relentless dedication to improvement mindset WORK YOURSELF TO THE BONE for the company Commission only pay. If your young and inexperienced you would buy into this cult mentality very easily.

Support from management

Once again an open door policy is preached but if you question the company mind set you’ll be ostracized.

Office / Work Environment

If your not grinding it out daily you must not care about the team or yourself or the company.

Challenging Work

This is a one call close in residential home sales pitch that last 3hrs and your sale price range is $2500 up to and sometimes exceeding 100k. If the homeowner doesn’t agree the day your with them you don’t get paid no call backs no time to think it over YES on the spot or nothing. If you get a yes and they cancel you get nothing. If it’s not financially approved you get nothing !!!
No guaranteed pay !! This is a VERY stressful and extremely difficult job and the company doesn’t give a crap they just want you to go do it and be happy they pay you at all. You should be grateful for the opportunity is the Power mentality.

Job Security

They hire and work people as hard as they can until they quit and then hire and train someone new monthly & quarterly. So much turn over that power begs employees to refer friends and family especially the newbies 6month to a year. Take a look at all the reviews on highering site alway employees 1 Year or less 4-5 star They encourage new employees to take job survey early because they are so bought in and blinded by all the monthly events and Mexico trip which isn’t free by the way!

Internal Communication

Power preaches open door policy speak your mind environment but if you speak anything other then the power answer you will find an already very difficult job get even more difficult.

Gender Equality

The company pushes this to the fullest extent..... Its motivation is public and social expectance. Not very genuine if your encouraging your employees to spread on social media how inclusive of a company POWER is.

Enjoyed my time working there, but if you want a work life balance you may want to seek other options.

Former EmployeeWorked at Power Home Remodeling Group in Philadelphia, PA.

What I like

Have some friends that will last a lifetime. Great learning experience because I now know what I want and do not want when it comes to a company culture. Overall the work life was fun but there is very little time away from work/work events to enjoy a social life besides with other employees.

What I dislike

Pay could use a bump up. Also more holiday's celebrated by time off. Seems like we always worked on every possible holiday when everyone else in America enjoyed family time.

Suggestions for improvement

The company is extremely top heavy when it comes to bonuses and pay structure. I worked in a field that allowed me the privilege of being responsible for such things. They preach fairness and claim everything is not about profits or money to them, but it is easy to preach that when the paychecks have quite a few more zeros each week then the next guy. I'm not just talking two or three either.

PHRG was an experience. I worked there for a year and everyday presented a new challenge. Marketing door to door is HARD

Former EmployeeWorked at Power Home Remodeling Group, LLC in Atlanta, GA.

What I like

PHRG molded me into a better person, by far. Although I was not successful there, I would not change anything and the skillsets acquired outweighs the troubles presented at the time.

What I dislike

PHRG is a competitive company. HIGHLY COMPETITIVE, like within other regions and so on and so forth. So there is no down time and the emotional pull can outweigh life and any other factors that matter. Money matters, I REPEAT, money matters and if you're not making money the company will see that eventually and trim.

Suggestions for improvement

Invest in your people. The turn over rate has to be HIGH and all that money going towards training, uniforms, supplies...it's got to add up.

Company Culture

The culture at Power encourages employees to take calculated risks so that we grow. The team culture within the company really encourages people to mentor each other and develop deep relationships. I've only been here for a year and a half, and have already created lasting relationships.

Teamwork

Teamwork is what runs Power. All the structures within Power from our values to how departments are built drive teamwork.

Internal Communication

Power does a great job trying to communicate awards, events, and new initiatives as best as possible. It can be difficult to do so when you span 14 different cities, but I feel like I'm kept abreast of what is going on within the company.
