I have been working at Gallery Furniture full-time (More than a year)
they provide lunch, nice stores and above average pay.
You are expected to be a whipping dog for your first 3-5 years. You get cussed at and made to feel like you are nothing but a number. The owner is very two faced. He will give you great pay and other things that other companies will not. Just expect not to have any free time, to be called out for any mistake in front of everyone else in the company, be called names and be bullied by the owner and other people that has been there longer than you. It feels like you have to give up your life for the better pay and you also have to ready to live in constant fear that you may walk in and find that you do not have a job for no reason other than the owner was in a bad mood and you did something that pissed him off. Right to hire, right to fire.
Advice to Management
look at what successful companies are doing for training and recruitment. I am worried that when the company has changed to a point that there is no going back to what made the place great in the first place and that the personal views of the owner is starting to effect everyone there personally. There is no clear chain of command after the owner. He has made a company that is great and he has done so much for the city and more, but until he starts putting more effort into grooming people to take his place and less into micro managing, I fear that once he is going the company will self destruct in no time.
