I worked at National Business Furniture full-time (More than 3 years)
Really enjoyed working for NBF. Great benefits and salary, people were wonderful. Wish I could have stayed on in the Atlanta office but they closed the inside sales and customer service operations. Over all I wish I still had a position at NBF
Expectations and responsibilities on the inside sales team were often very demanding...not consistent between branches however sales goals and incentives were ranked the same.
Advice to Management
Stop micro managing...use the gifts and talents of people you have hired...you will be pleasantly surprised!

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Business Furniture (Milwaukee, WI).
A couple of days after applying for this position I received an e-mail from one of their HR reps. It started off by saying "Dear Applicant..." Can't they at least use my name? They gave me three different days (all of which were less than a week away) giving me times I can come in. This would be very inconvenient for someone who currently has a job. No phone screen whatsoever. I came in to the interview and they gave me three tests to take (arithmetic, IQ, and reasoning). I thought this was a little silly because this job needed a Bachelors degree to even get. Then they brought me in to speak with their HR Director who basically told me that in their workplace they don't really socialize and if you want to meet with someone you have to set up a meeting. Not to be mean, but it doesn't sound like a fun place to work.
