    I worked at Kitchen Magic

    Pros

    Decent money when customers buy. flexible schedule.

    Cons

    So many to list. Company does not care about having you drive all over the place for leads using your gas and putting wear and tear on car. The leads you drive to may be awful, or want something the company does not do (such as knocking down walls), but they don’t care. The benefits are insanely expensive.....most expensive I have ever seen or heard of anywhere. Company does quality work but is not price competitive, so it is a tough sell in one call close. Company also pays to be the top search result in kitchen remodeling so most times you are first quote a customer is getting . Company expects you to go to training and meetings for free.

    I worked at Kitchen Magic

    Pros

    No pros, maybe besides paid lunches that’s about it.

    Cons

    A lot of cons, not a place where you seek advancement. Ownership and management very questionable. Would not consider having a career with this company. Managers have no idea about the company, they hire to make themselves look good.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kitchen Magic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Their install contractors are not employees; yet they are generally quite competent. They stand by their product.

    Cons

    They push a one-call close, with fake discounts and price drops. Pricing is very high, but salesmen are able to lower costs up to more reasonable 30 percent and still make small commission. Most of the training emphasizes Probably better than many other in-house sales jobs, but like so many others, they consider sales people expendable, and the low end of the totem pole.

    I have been working at Kitchen Magic part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent commission if you are given good leads. Home-cooked meals once a month for a meeting at HQ.

    Cons

    No base pay, and the company picks and chooses who gets rembursed for tolls, sometimes amounting to $14 each. Favoritism in regards to the leads. You don't get paid unless you sell, so leads matter. Some days only one or two leads. Driving all over the place.

    I worked at Kitchen Magic full-time

    Pros

    There have been some interesting improvements in employee involvement lately. If you smoke, you get plenty of time to do so. Yearly parties with gift raffles.

    Cons

    Owners inherited company and have no real world experience. They talk down to their employees and are teaching tjeir next successive generation to be even more obnoxious. Also, they respond more to flattery than they do to hard work. If you're the kind of person who doesn't mind giving false flattery and showing up for 40 hours a week just to collect a check, this place is for you. BTW, don't expect to get paid for snow days, even if you showed up.

    I have been working at Kitchen Magic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a family owned business, that is a leader in the industry of Refacing cabinets. (also new cabinetry). The owners REALLY care about their product and the customers that hire us to complete their projects. Quality of the work is great, customer feedback is almost always positive.

    Cons

    Cannot really think of a negative. From a Sales side, you can work long hours and evenings... but that is what this industry is all about. If you are good, you will make good money.
