    I have been working at Rooms To Go full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * A privately owned company owned by an individual who can take pride in treating people right. * The number of sales associates is based on store volume. Therefore, the floor is never flooded and each sales associate is afforded the opportunity to make a 4-digit income PER WEEK!. * An outstanding 2-week, hands-on training period. My trainer made it a point to take a personal interest in each of us and our success with RTG. * A comprehensive benefit package that is just unheard of these days in any job. * Beautiful stores, excellent working conditions. * I am fortunate enough to work with a very experienced store manager (backed by a superior office staff) who will go out of their way for both customers and employees. I work in one of the lower-volume South Florida stores. Nearly all of the employees have been here for years and years. They treat each other like family and bring an overwhelming amount of experience to the table. Everybody is treated with respect. And everybody is committed to the success of the store. Don't let any negative reviews you read about the company or products sway you. All the stores here in Florida move upwards of 14,000 pieces of furniture each day, 6-days a week. With this kind of volume, not everything is going to be perfect. However, the system this company has in place is incredible and has to be right at least 99% of the time. That means, for every negative review you read, there are thousands of positive reviews that never get written! If you are given an opportunity for an interview, be prepared to be at the top of your game. Turnover is very low, and for obvious reasons, sales positions don't come up all that often. If you're hired, this will probably be the last job you'll ever have to look for.

    Cons

    In argument to those who complain about working weekends and holidays? Folks, this is a RETAIL job, with RETAIL hours! This is explained to all employees prior to being hired. You know well in advance what is to be expected! THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE! Weekends can be quite busy. If you are making $600 to $900 over those 3 days alone, why would you not want to be there????? Besides, you are still given 2 days off during the week, and the company insists you take your time off (and do offer a lot of it). Unlike other full-time commission jobs that make you work 50-60 hours per week, I usually end up working 41 to 43 hours per week. And the best part is, I make more money. In conclusion, if you are not driven to make a good living, then Rooms to Go is not for you.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Knoxville, TN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Filled out basic information application, waited for a manager, and sat down on one of the display sofas. We went over my experience, how that ties into RTG, what I didn't like about previous employments, what I did like, and why RTG would be something I'm interested in, or an assist to have.

    Interview Questions

    • What did you like, and not like about (previous employer)?   1 Answer
    • Are you comfortable with a 100% commission based job?   1 Answer
    • Everyone works weekends, but you get two back to back off days during the week, and the remaining three days are rotated shifts. Sometimes those days, weekends, and holidays will be bell days (work open to close), is this something you'd be flexible/okay with?   1 Answer
    • What percentage of sales should contain add-ons, in your opinion?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You're paid $15/hr for your time, or paid in commission if it's the larger amount. This is called a draw. You want to consistently go above the draw. It's not good to stay at the bottom making the least for the store.
