    I have been working at Everest Home Improvements full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Try and get a franchise that can provide this level of income without spending thousands in up front costs
    It is my business, the harder I work the more money I make
    Some consultants have been doing this for 30 years and have had very nice lifestyles because of it
    Will suit hardworking entrepreneurial individuals with a desire to succeed
    Company Incentives are fantastic last competition I won was for a weekend Christmas shopping in New York
    Everest 'Fit the Best' is proven we have better solutions then anybody else in the market place
    Career Progression
    My boss was a consultant, his boss was a consultant, our Sales Director was a consultant need I say more

    Cons

    If you can't motivate yourself to be successful this will not work for you
    I read some of the negative reviews on this site and all I can say is that in my experience the people who fail do not run their own business, they expect business to fall in their lap and when it doesn't, it is everyone else's fault but theirs.
    People who say they work for nothing, could not generate their own appointments or sell the leads given to them by the company it is a harsh lesson but hard work never goes unrewarded and hard work with Everest can reward very well if you are capable of doing the job

    Advice to Management

    Keep us as 'The Best' who wants to be an order taker on price. I am proud to sell the Best and our customers are proud to of bought the Best

    HR Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cuffley, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Everest Home Improvements (Cuffley, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the role on-line, a very short time later I received a screening phone call. The whole process from start to finish was smooth, friendly and very informative. I was invited to a first interview which was tough but intentionally so to ensure I had the right skills and experience for the role. The next day I received a call asking me to attend a second interview which turned out to be basically an informal chat. The whole process was oddly very enjoyable.
