    Pros

    It's simple to apply, it treats even low level employees with quite a bit of respect. I was able to learn anything i wanted to about the store our systems and sales skills in general, working there for just a few mouth's opened TONS of doors for me to do other things.

    Cons

    Pay was pretty poor, don't let it become who you are. My personal manger was very hands off I felt he wasn't very productive in general and was much more worried about his future then the stores.

    Interview

    Applied online answered all questions, then if you get through that you get a phone interview. HR adviser rang me with 5 questions regarding customer service and if money was no object what dirt of living room would create. I told her our living room was our dream as we'd spent time and dedication on it , knocked fireplace out added a oak fireplace and wood burner so I would repeat this if we moved arms we love it.
