    I have been working at American Furniture Warehouse full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The stores have lots of traffic so if you like to work and make money its all there. Great pay, great benefits, great training and lots of opportunity due to business is great and getting better all the time. There are more jobs than just salespeople...for example; delivery drivers and helpers, in house shop for merchandise building and repair, accounting, decorators, warehouse, truck maintenance...and there is on site training.

    Cons

    Working in retail means working retail hours. For some it is no big deal or a problem at all...others like to have nights and weekends off....and every holiday for the most part. If you want nights off or all holidays (Other than Christmas and Easter) retail may not work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is always willing to train and listen to concerns with hopes of always improving and providing employees with all the tools they need to be successful. Management does a good job in managing.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Furniture Warehouse in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was asked 3 questions.

    Have you worked in sales before?
    Have you worked in furniture before?
    When can you start?

    That's it. They want people with sales experience. They are hesitant to hire people from other furniture companies. You need a flexible schedule too. Be prepared to work long retail hours.

Tony the Tiger hawking home furnishings might give some marketers pause, but the combination seems to work for American Furniture Warehouse. American Furniture's television commercials often spotlight white-haired president and CEO Jake Jabs (who has become a well-known personality in the state as well as in the home furnishings industry) accompanied by baby exotic animals, mostly tigers. The company sells furniture and electronics at discounted prices through about a dozen retail locations in Colorado and via its website, which also features bridal and gift registries... More
