Associate Testimonials

Melissa O., Sales Coordinator

I started my career at Consolidated because of the solid reputation the company has in the industry. I knew I was coming into a stable, great place to work.  Part of the reason I've stayed at Consolidated for so long is because the company has been very accommodating in maintaining work/life balance. I attribute this to the fact that it's a family-owned company.

My favorite memories are when the associates get together and celebrate the holidays and other festivities. It's a reminder that no matter what happens, there is always somebody here to help you. There is a great sense of teamwork.

Frank P., Senior Estimator

One of the main reasons why I like working for Consolidated Carpet is because it is family owned and operated and has been around for over 75 years - this shows longevity and stability.  Not too many people get interviewed and hired for a job by the company's CEO - I was.  I liked what I saw then and I like what I see now as the company continues to grow.  It is good to know that if I am having any major unresolved issues, I can always see an owner as a last resort because often times others work for companies and you never ever see the owners.  Both management and associates are easy and a pleasure to work with.  The management team is very understanding to the personal needs of the associates and does its best to accommodate those needs whenever possible.  Today some 15 years plus later, I have no regrets.

Steve N., Senior Account Executive

What makes Consolidated special is the skills and resources their associates have to do any job at any time. I started my career here as an installer and advanced to project manager. Now I am an account executive. Because of the roles I have had over the years, I am well-rounded and able to handle all aspects of business.
