It was like wearing 3 hats at once with little sales support

Sales could have received more support from management and customer service. Due to the franchise structure there was little to no area specific advertising done to generate customer inquiry.

Pros

I got paid and was treated fairly by my direct manager

Cons

You are expected to prospect for the majority of business opportunities

Can't Fault

G.J. Gardner is a great company to work for, the extensive training from head office and also from the franchise is faultless. Truly a delight to work for.

Family feel & great network

A challenging yet rewarding place to work. Plenty of fantastic incentives and a large network of individuals across the country to work with and bounce ideas off. Fantastic opportunities to up-skill with training programs.

Good Franchise to work with

I Started my career as a Site Manager with GJ Gardner Homes. I studied a Cert4 in Building and Construction and was with the business for 2 years. In that time, I learned the essential skills of how to build single and double story dwellings.

Loved working here

This was a perfect fit and as I went from a showroom consultant with tiling, plumbing and cabinetry experience to office administration/manager in a franchise building new homes I learnt so much and the company really took off. From building 10 homes to 25-30 homes a year, I had great team support but was able to make executive decisions to move the local identity of the business forward.

Was this review helpful?

They were a very busy yet organised company to work with. I really enjoyed my time with them. Unfortunately the work was running out .

I found GJ Gardner a great company to work for. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a great working relationship with them and thoroughly enjoyed my time doing so. They understood the importance of Interior Design. I only looked for other work as I had almost completed all I could do for them in assisting to revamp their Franchise Design Studios. I would have loved a full time job with them.

no integrity

Franchise owners have no idea of a sales consultant role, they are rude, arrogant and unsupportive. I would not recommend these employers.

productive and fun workplace

Meeting with customers and making sure that all paperwork is in order. Learning more about the building industry was very interesting. It was a family owned company which made it close nit. The only other employees was the owners and they were always fun. The hardest time was getting my head around the operating system as it was owned by the franchise. The most enjoyable part was seeing a families fun when they open their door to the house that they seen progressing.

Pros

Being able to roam around the building site seeing how the houses progress

Cons

I was not their nearly long enough
