    I have been working at The Roomplace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are friendly supervisors and coworkers. The overall relaxed atmosphere in the break room is great. The supervisors are not too strict on accidents like time sheet mess ups or dropping furniture,. Assistance is readily available if you need it. They WILL answer any question you ask. Basically, be punctual, listen and do what you are told, and lastly just don't talk back. If you can do those three simple things I can gurantee you will have a pleasant working expierience as well as possible promtions.

    Cons

    Plenty of overtime unless you're into long hours. There's not much besides that, they offer dental, 401k, and do plenty of employee special perks: discount on furniture, free shipping, paid cash for being accident free, and silent auctions on slightly damaged furniture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more career advancements to those few who show potential and to be more intune with the little guys who help you run the show so smoothly.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Roomplace in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Applications for employment are submitted online. Human Resources submits information to hiring management of these qualified applicants. Store manager contacts those applicants to set up interviews. The process usually involves two interviews with both the Store Manager and an assistant manager. After a manager qualifies the applicant as a good fit for the position, a background check and drug testing is done. This process usually takes longer than a week.
