    Pros

    Great product, a store full of wants. potential for growth- I have had a progression plan in place since day 1.
    I insisted on being paid well, it needed to be okayed 4 steps up the ladder- but I got it. They will pay for talent if you have the behaviors and skills to bring to the team.

    Cons

    Can be labor intensive, it is a furniture store- so, that should be expected.
    Sometimes the quality of (some) merchandise can be embarrassing.

    Advice to Management

    More $ incentive for exceeding KPI goals.

    Pros

    Look for people to move up internally. Many opportunities to advance. The people in my store really felt like my family and I loved going to work! I stayed with them for 3 years and look to work for them in the corporate office some day.

    Cons

    Minimum wage for sales associates if you're in a small market. Lots of standing on your feet.
